After almost three decades providing cutting edge women's health care in Atlanta - Dr. Scott's considered one of Atlanta's foremost OB/GYN physicians.
As the former Chairman of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Northside Hospital in Atlanta and as an MCG Clinical Adjunct Professor AU/UGA Medical Partnership - Michael C. Scott MD not only cares for patients but also influences other doctors in pathways for optimal women's health.
He attended the University of Kentucky, to earn his undergraduate degree and finished his medical degree at the Medical College of Georgia. Dr. Scott completed his residency in OB/GYN at the University of Cincinnati School of Medicine. He's the past Medical Director of the Atlanta Women's Research Institute and served as President of the Atlanta OB/GYN Society.
Dr. Scott chose OB/GYN because of the unique personal rewards: complex surgical cases from high-risk obstetrical and gynecological procedures challenge his mind and body. The lasting bonds
with patients, their children - and sometimes their children's children - is unique and especially heartwarming.
His devotion to medical work and service led him to volunteer for countless medical mission trips. These trips represent some of the most rewarding experiences of his life. He led and participated with teams from various organizations around the globe in places like the Amazon, Ghana, Brazil, Bolivia, Nepal, Guatemala, Vietnam and Ethiopia.
"Often times, in remote areas, I am not only the first OB/GYN my patient has ever seen, but I'm the first physician they visited their entire life! It's a privilege to care for any patient, but it is humbling to care for those with such great need. Surgical procedures for patients with no access to care frequently change a patients quality of life forever. Each time I return from my mission trip I gain complete clarity on what really matters in life. "
Dr. Scott is married with two sons - both of whom are pursuing careers in healthcare. In his free time he enjoys outdoor activities, snow skiing, cycling, travel, reading and spending time with family.
