get to know me

I chose my specialty because...

I wanted to help children safely participate in exercise and activity, while managing their illnesses and injuries appropriately.

I chose to work at Dayton Children's because...

I wanted to work in a setting which sees children as a unique population of patients who cannot simply be treated as small adults.

Dayton Children's is special because...

Dayton Children's is big enough to provide excellent care to children with a variety of conditions, but small enough that you know colleagues in other departments who see the same patients.

Dr. Scott and the staff that was with her that day had the most incredible bed side manner that we have experience in years in the medical field. Just absolutely outstanding. She was able to make a personal connection with my child quickly and relate experiences my child was having to things that Dr. Scott knew from her education and from her personal experience to help my child start working through the injury. Absolute 10 across the board. We'll definitely be recommending her to friends.

We first saw her 2 years ago for an injury my daughter had & when she needed to be seen again Dr. Scott was the one I wanted to see. She's friendly, knowledgeable, and takes her time with the patient. Also the athletic trainer (unfortunately I cannot remember her name) that helped us was really great. Both her & Dr. Scott involved my daughter in her care & took the time to make sure she understood everything.

I just wanted to say that her bed side manner is fantastic. She did not make us feel like we were interrupting her day. She answered all of our questions to the point where my daughter understood exactly what she needed to do, what was causing it where exactly it was strange and I could not be happier than I was when we left that appointment.

Dr. Scott and the athletic trainer individual that helped us prior to Dr. Scott coming into the room were absolutely wonderful. They were thorough and really explained things in detail. I did feel like there was a very honest, a very, very honest desire to like help my daughter and help me to understand for my daughter what she needed to do to recover. They really went above and beyond and were kind. Dr. Scott was very approachable and was really wonderful to work with and I loved how the end she said, well I hope we don't see each other again, but if we need to, we will because if I had needed to have
