      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Scott's Care Philosophy

      My philosophy is to provide the best outcome for each patient through individualized care. I have over 25 years' experience treating all types of pediatric heart conditions, with a specific empahsis on arrhythmia management. Medical technology continues to advance rapidly, the most current of which is available to me, but must it must be used appropriately and discriminantly. Technology should never be a substitute for direct patient interaction.
