Dr. Marvetta A Scott has the following 2 specialties
- 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.
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Dr. MarVetta Scott was my dr. for 10 yrs. She NEVER diagnosed my diabetes. She prescribed a medicine to which SHE KNEW I WAS ALLERGIC. My pharmacist said I DEFINITELY SHOULD NOT take this medicine. A friend also left this dr for same reason about an Rx. This dr. should be disbarred; told Dr. Bat's office about these things, but never even got a call back. STAY AWAY FROM THIS PRACTICE & DOCTOR IF YOU VALUE YOUR LIFE!!!!
After trying several recommended doctors and not getting what we needed, I did some research and found Dr. Scott for my aunt's care. Over the past 6+ years, Dr. Scott has worked miracles with an extremely complex set of health issues, including 2 auto-immune issues, diabetes, heart issues including quadruple bypass and other chronic conditions. Dr. Scott's diagnosis is always spot on. She refers us to the best-in-class specialists when needed. Her compassion and follow-up is second to none. She is patient, spends the time she needs to make sure you understand and agree with the course of action she recommends, and treats you with great dignity and care. I think she's absolutely brilliant, and when you add in the level of genuine care she provides and her overall performance, she has to be the best internist I've ever seen. I believe she has not only extended my aunt's life but she has improved the quality of her life beyond anything hoped for. I would give her 10 stars if I could.
I have been seeing Dr. Scott for about six months for a variety of small issues (HTN, cholesterol, etc). Thus far, I have been very pleased, especially by her bedside manner. I always feel like she listens to me, and never feel like I am being talked down to or lectured. I've never had any problems scheduling appointments when I need them, and their early morning walk-in hours are very handy as well, especially during flu season. The only negative that I have experienced is that the wait time during visits can sometimes be a little long (30-45min), but that happens everywhere, so it is certainly not a dealbreaker. Thanks!!
