Meet Your Doctor

What led you to work in health care and what do you find most rewarding?
I chose to become a surgeon because it offers a rewarding and unique combination of helping others, pursuing scientific inquiry, and working with one’s hands. These are the factors which continue to make my job enjoyable for me.

In your opinion, what is the most important factor in your relationship with patients?
The most important factor is trust – trust that I have offered the patient all the information needed to make a prudent decision about treatment, and trust that our team will work to the very best of its ability to give that patient the best result possible.

What are your top priorities for every patient you see?
My top priority in clinic is making sure that patients have enough time with me to tell me their full story, to ask questions, and ultimately, to understand their treatment options.

Patient Stories

As a first time patient/visitor I was impressed with how friendly and helpful everyone was in directing me to my appointment location. My expectations for good care were high, having heard so many positive things about DHMC over the years. I feel that Dr. Lollis, nurses and staff exceeded these expectations in both a personal and clinical manner.

I met with Dr. Scott Lollis and much to my surprise the next day he did my herniated disc. I was in pain for four weeks. When the surgery was over my pain level drop by 60 percent. Very nice doctor, very respectful. Thanks again.

We were very impressed with Dr. Lollis. He was patient with our questions, gave easy to understand explanations and made us feel that we were important and our needs were important to him. Outstanding bedside manner.

Everything done in a timely manner from registration to completion of visit including seeing nurse, seeing doctor and final instructions. Dr. Lollis is a fine doctor. He is extremely competent. He explains things in a clear, understandable way. He is a good listener, and he has the best needs of the patient at heart. He looks the patient in eye. He also has a good sense of humor.
