Scott T. Roethle, M.D., aka “Dr. Scott”, is leading innovation in health and healthcare. He believes that health and wellness are not defined by treating the symptoms of chronic disease, but by avoiding and/or eliminating underlying chronic disease. The current health crises, and the perils of the healthcare system, are rooted in this central theme of symptom treatment and chronic condition management, instead of disease prevention and eradication. He believes that health and wellness are obtainable with the right approach to a healthy lifestyle, including personal choices, faith and friendship, and proper medical wellness guidance and therapies. There is no magic pill or solution, but there are great ways to optimize your health and well-being, one day at a time.
He still works as an anesthesiologist in the Kansas City area, but he is helping patients more broadly outside of the operating room, in an integrative and functional medicine clinic in KC, and through his tele/virtual medical practice, all across the country as he is licensed in several states. Dr. Scott has a long history of advanced education, experience, and engagement in medical wellness, lifestyle medicine, and leading this paradigm shift of healthcare. He has spent years learning and building the foundations of a successful medical wellness practice to help others change their health and lives.
