A Maine native, he developed an interest in the physical therapy profession during his high school years through sports and exercise.

Scott truly believes that physical therapy should be centered on each individual patient, using evidence-based practices, and an outcomes oriented approach.
“Optimal physical health and function is achieved through physical therapy when the patient and clinician work together as a team. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing that smile on your patient’s face when they achieve their goals with physical therapy.”
Scott enjoys spending time with his family and friends, taking advantage of New England and all it has to offer through hiking, camping, skiing, golfing, wake surfing and waterskiing. He also enjoys traveling and trying new cuisine.
