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.

This was our first time coming to Children's for any type of sports medicine needs and so this was our first time we interacted with Dr. Lora Scott, and she was great.

Dr. Scott was very kind, yet professional. She talked to my 13yo & me, explaining things and answering any questions.

She is listens to the parent and the child. She takes her time with each patient and is very thorough. He plan of care is understood and very well written. I highly recommend Dr. Scott and the team at her Sports Medicine clinic.
