Dr. Scott R. Barlow, DNP (“Scotty”) has a particular interest in men’s health. He feels like he can relate to many of the issues facing men. Dr. Barlow began to have a passion for men’s health while in residency. The other residents at his primary residency clinic were female providers and as he puts it, “our patient panels just kind of self-sorted and most of the teenage guys and men in their 20s, 30s, 40s, and 50s gravitated toward receiving care from me as a younger guy that they felt they could really relate to.”
Helping guys optimize their health has brought Dr. Barlow great satisfaction and it has been one of his goals to develop a significant part of his primary care practice with a focus on men from their older teenage years into their 40s and 50s.
“If I can help light a fire, and keep that fire burning throughout the years, for younger guys to embrace a healthy lifestyle early on, it will be extremely rewarding to see them experience optimal health as they age. Many of the problems men face -including obesity, heart disease, diabetes, fatigue, performance issues, depression, chronic pain, and others- around the time they are finally ready to retire and enjoy life, could largely be prevented with healthy choices in their early decades of life. That is something I get very excited about facilitating as a healthcare provider!”
Scotty’s mantra for men’s health is Happy, Healthy, Confident Men. He believes these three words embody the key elements necessary for men to feel satisfaction as they strive to become their best selves.
