Scott is a former US Army officer and a graduate of the prestigious University of Nebraska/Interservice Physician Assistant Program. He earned his Doctor of Medical Science from Butler University. Scott has practiced medicine since 1999 and accumulated extensive clinical experience in gastroenterology and dermatology. In 2003, Scott made the full time transition to functional and lifestyle medicine.
Scott became interested in functional medicine when he witnessed the improvements in patients with chronic conditions. He initially used functional medicine with his pediatric patient population but soon realized that the parents of his patients and their extended families could also benefit from this approach.
Scott has special interest in methylation disorders, mitochondria dysfunction, autoimmune disorders, as well as gastrointestinal health. He has authored or co-authored and presented several papers on a variety of functional medicine topics. This includes the use of hyperbaric oxygen (HBOT), pediatric acute neuropsychiatric disorder after streptococcal infection (PANDAS), as well as a comprehensive biomarker paper on autism and ADHD. Most recently, Scott has presented category 1 CME education on Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO). Scott is a member of the American Academy of Anti-aging and the Institute for Functional Medicine.
