About Diane Scott, MD

Prior to becoming a physician, I worked in a laboratory in the health care field and wanted to see the patients behind the cells by taking a more active role in the prevention and treatment of cancer. The skin can be a window to underlying medical conditions. Through a thorough examination and listening to a patient’s concerns, symptoms and history, I can assist in the diagnosis and treatment of medical conditions that affect the skin, in addition to primary skin diseases. I enjoy educating patients about the effects of sun exposure and work with each individual to develop a strategy to minimize their skin cancer risks. In my free time, I enjoy traveling with my family, listening to blues and rock music, reading and hiking.

I have an inflammatory rare disease that causes permanent hair loss, in addition to an itchy and burning scalp. This disease has no cure and treatment options vary from patient to patient. My disease, Cicatricial Alopecia, while not life threatening, greatly affects my feelings of well being. However, when I see Dr. Scott, she is always reassuring, listens carefully, and is willing to explore the latest research and treatment options. I am so grateful to have a doctor that cares so much about me.

Dr Scott' biopsy was round and clean. I received a small bag with moisturizer gel and band-aids Nice.
