Scott Nelson, M.D., joined the practice in 2023. For undergraduate studies, Nelson attended the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill then went on to attend medical school at Florida State University. After completing a three-year residency at Prisma Health in Columbia, South Carolina, Nelson felt drawn back to Tallahassee’s abundant medical community and, as an avid hiker and runner, to its many parks and trails. Nelson believes in the practice of evidence-based medicine while also leading with kindness, compassion and a dash of humor, when appropriate. His most valued roles as a father and a husband help to shape the way he approaches and understands each family. “As I begin my professional career, I look forward to providing the same high-quality healthcare that patients and families have come to expect at North Florida Pediatrics. I’m excited to get started and grow alongside my patients for years to come,” said Nelson.
