After UCLA medical school, Scott Saunders completed a Family Practice residency at Northridge Hospital, becoming board certified in 1995. Since then he has lived and worked in Santa Barbara County.
As the medical director of a nursing home in Lompoc, Dr. Saunders had to take all of the most difficult cases. Many patients had lists of medications that were pages long. While trying to relieve their suffering from side effects, he did a lot of research and found that the medications often did more harm than good.
He was able to find alternatives to most medications that not only worked better, but had no side effects. Since then he has specialized in helping people reduce their medication burden. Most find more energy and vitality, they think more clearly, and they feel better.
His special interest, though is diagnosing difficult cases. When most doctors don’t find an immediate diagnosis they put the patient on tranquilizers, anti-depressants, or send them to a psychiatrist, but Dr. Saunders believes everything has a cause, and to discover it is the first part of finding a cure.This requires special individual care, and often outside research or referrals. Medical science has come so far; in the 21st Century we can now diagnose and treat the cause of illness, instead of just the symptoms.
Dr. Saunders is also board certified in Integrative Medicine, and is a member of the American Academy of Integrative Medicine, as well as the American College for the Advancement of Medicine, and the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M).
