Patricia Scott M.D.

Dr. Scott (‘Pat’) is a native Midwesterner.   She received her undergraduate education at Central Michigan University and attended medical school at The University of Michigan, graduating Cum Laude.   Following medical school, Pat and her husband settled in Delaware and she completed her pediatric residency at St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children.  Pat was then Chief Pediatric Resident at the Medical Center of Delaware.   She was asked to stay on the teaching staff and provided clinical care and medical student and pediatric resident education in the outpatient setting.    Once her two sons were preschoolers, Pat joined Dr. Gotthold in private practice in North Wilmington.

Pat prefers to spend her nuggets of free time outside, working in her ever evolving naturalized garden and wandering into the adjacent woods.     Over the years, Pat has been gratified to lead her sons and their friends on quests for newts,  introduced  them to the garter snake under the front step , as well as other neighborhood creatures.

Dr. Scott recognizes the joys, challenges and anxieties that are part of raising children.  She endeavors to listen to parent’s concerns and to provide up to date pediatric care, tempered with accumulated experience and compassion.
