Dr. Mark P Scott has the following 4 specialties
- Critical Care Medicine
Also sometimes referred to as intensivists, critical care specialists are physicians with specialized training in the diagnosis and management of life-threatening conditions. Some of these conditions affect vital organs like the heart and lungs, those that make breathing difficult or impossible, and those that affect entire organ systems, like the renal system.
Critical care specialists are typically found in a hospital's intensive care unit where they monitor patients with life-threatening conditions and make determinations as to the best course of treatment.
- Sleep Medicine
A sleep medicine specialist is specially trained in diagnosing and treating disorders involving sleep.
Sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome and insomnia are very common and can often cause other serious health issues, such as depression, asthma, and migraines. Sleep medicine specialists often work in sleep centers where they observe a patient while sleeping and monitor brain waves, behavior, and vital signs in order to identify the causes of sleep disturbance, or an inability to sleep (insomnia).
Sleep medicine specialists treat patients through advising on sleep hygiene, providing cognitive behavioral therapy, using light therapy, or medical sleep aides.
- Pulmonary Disease
A pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the lungs and respiratory tract.
These specialists are similar to critical care specialists in that their patients often require mechanical ventilation to assist their breathing.
Pulmonologists diagnose and treat patients with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, COPD, and emphysema. Exposure and inhalation of certain toxic substances may also warrant the services of a pulmonologist.
Some of the tools and tests pulmonologists use to diagnose a patient are a stethoscope in order to listen for abnormal breathing sounds, chest X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, bronchoscopy, and polysomnography.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

My husband has been a patient of Dr. Scott's for over a year now and we don't really know any more today than we did when he started treating my husband. My husband is severely short of breath with minimal exertion and is really frustrated that he's not getting any better. As another viewer stated, the office staff is very disorganized and is not patient friendly. My husband had to get lab work and we got all the way to the lab group to find that the office had given us another patient's requisition and ours to another patient (HIPPA violation). They scheduled my husband for a bronchoscopy and forgot to notify the physician. These are only a few of the problems we have had
I was a patient of Dr. Scott for a year and saw him only twice. he ordered all forms of tests which I did not mind, but when I had to get a medicine I was taking his staff kept messing up and I never was able to get my prescription re-written. I also needed to have surgery on my neck and the Surgeon asked repeatedly, as I also did , to send a release for the procedure. Had to cancel the surgery and now I am having to live with this pain. His office is disorganized, and they fail to be able to communicate between Dr. and Patient. He is arrogant and has an uncanny attitude to not listen to his patient. I fired his group!!!!!!
