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.

Hi, Dr. Scott was actually very very efficient. She came in on time. She answered all of our questions and diagnosed in a very very very quickly with expedient following care. It was sweet and nice to actually get into an office where you felt like everything that happened was great and effectively.

Dr. Lora Scott, is absolutely the best of the best. She is 100% Top Notch. She was fabulous. She couldn't have been any better and I'm grateful, but I was able to bring my son to her. Thank you so much.
