Dear valued patients:
As most of you know, I have taken time off from my practice this year. During this time I have reflected on my career path. I have been able to objectively assess whether a small private practice is viable in today’s medical environment of high overhead expenses, insurance regulations, etc. Sadly, I have concluded that returning as a solo practitioner will not be professionally rewarding. And, unfortunately there are no alternative practice opportunities for me in Cobb County or surrounding areas.
I have been offered and I have accepted a permanent position in Florence, South Carolina at the Medical University of South Carolina – Florence Medical Center. As a board certified Urogynecologist, my practice there will focus on Urogynecology which is the care of urinary incontinence and surgery for pelvic organ prolapse. I will also have the opportunity to teach young physicians in training which has long been one of my career goals.
I am excited about this new opportunity in a location with a large need and with the backing and financial support of a hospital system. At the same time I will truly miss my patients here in Cobb and Paulding, many of whom have been with me for 30 years. It has truly been an honor and a privilege to serve you. I hope the care you received from me met your standards.
Please be sure to visit my website at scottgynecology.com for gynecologists in the area and for information on how to obtain your medical records.
With sincerest gratitude,
