Other Information

”My parents tell me that I said I wanted to be a doctor from the time I was a small child. I have always been fascinated with the science of medicine, but nothing is more important to me as a doctor than the relationships that I build with patients. It was in my first year of internal medicine residency training that I learned that I was to dedicate my life’s work to the treatment and care of cancer patients in fighting this terrible disease.

My goal is to offer patients state-of-the-art treatments in a safe and caring environment. It is the courage and resolution of my patients that inspires me every day to provide the best medical care possible. I want my patients to understand that I care about all facets of their wellbeing and that I will be there to help them through every step of their cancer treatment.”

Dr. Scott Ryan Seals enjoys running in half marathons, marathons, and Ironman triathlons. He also enjoys reading, traveling, time with his family, carpentry work, and cooking.
