Dr. Scott K Roos, MD
A rocket scientist turned physician, Dr. Roos truly understands the value of diagnostics. He's helped us uncover long-standing medical maladies that MANY other doctors missed allowing us to get "uncontrollable" diabetes and hypertension not only controlled but diabetes is GONE! Wow, it was a group of nutritional deficiencies that Dr. Roos thought to run labs for - why did NONE of the other doctors run these labs in nearly 2 decades?! In our case it was as "simple" as Vitamin D and Magnesium and a few others, but none of the other doctors ran these labs. Sure SOME of the other doctors are NOW, but they were NOT doing this routinely when Dr. Roos thought to order these labs. Only the best for my loved ones, I've referred quite a few people to him in the years we've been with him. My condition is life-threatening, Dr. Roos is ALWAYS up to speed on my situation and knows what I need and which specialists are the best for my situation.
Tips & Advices
Academic medical centers provide the widest range of specialty care treatments, including the latest technological advances, clinical trials, and surgical techniques. In general, an academic medical center is a better choice than a community hospital for complicated treatments or rare diseases. Pediatric intensive care, especially, is usually performed at academic medical centers.
Academic medical centers offer a broad range of specialized services, from allergists to urologists. Some of the larger medical centers have entire hospitals or clinics focused on a particular medical service, such as cancer treatment, though specialties vary among the centers. Patients whose community hospital or local doctors do not have the facilities or expertise to address complex medical conditions can be referred by their primary care physician or local specialist to a major medical center (there are more than a dozen in the United States).
Yes. In addition to their inpatient hospital services, medical centers can offer a wide variety of outpatient services, such as pain clinics, rehabilitation centers, surgery, imaging and laboratory, mental health treatment, and outpatient cancer treatment. Medical groups – doctors in private practice but affiliated with the medical center--will also have offices within the medical center.
Physicians, nurses, physician’s assistants, residents, and attending physicians makeup the clinical staff of an academic medical center.
Medical center accreditation is not required, but most centers work voluntarily toward accreditation because it represents higher standards of healthcare quality and patient safety.
