Dr. Stephen Scott received his undergraduate degree from the University of Missouri-Kansas City (MO) and his medical degree from the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine. He served his residency at the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Chicago Program, Obstetrics and Gynecology. Dr. Scott has received several awards in teaching excellence, and his special interests include pediatric gynecology, teen pregnancy, mood disorders in pregnancy, adolescent pelvic pain, and congenital disorders and anomalies of sexual differentiation. Dr. Scott chose to specialize in these fields because he felt called to serve the vulnerable patients who may not otherwise have a voice in promoting their reproductive health. He enjoys developing relationships with his patients and their families so that he can help them maximize their health and wholeness. Dr. Scott is proud of developing an integrated model of care that balances proactive and preventive primary care with specialty interventions. Part of that model involves listening to his patients so they can work together as a team to form strategies that meet both their unique medical needs and their needs as an individual. Dr. Scott is a strong advocate of allowing patients the freedom to present their complete story and concerns, as this leads to the customization of interventions that promote healing within the context of that individual's life needs.
