Dr. Anette Scott is a board certified psychiatrist. She was born and raised in Germany. She graduated medical school in Munich, Bavaria, before moving to the United States. Dr. Scott always had a special interest in eating disorders resulting in her desire to choose a residency in psychiatry. Dr. Scott completed both her internship and residency at the University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio. During her residency she received the Outstanding Resident Award as well as the Ellie Ruecker Psychotherapy Training Award with grant sponsorship to attend training in Dialectical Behavior Therapy. She worked as a private contractor at Laurel Ridge Hospital and Clarity Child Guidance Center in the Admissions office gaining experience with acutely ill psychiatric patients. Dr. Scott opened her own private practice here in San Antonio after graduation from her residency training. She has been recognized as a San Antonio’s Best Doctor in 2013 and 2014. Dr. Scott started working as a consulting psychiatrist at Eating Recovery Center of San Antonio in January 2015. Dr. Scott believes in looking at her patients as a whole person applying a holistic approach maximizing the benefits of medication, psychotherapy, nutrition, exercise and a caring individualized and supportive patient-physician relationship. Optimizing nutrition and vitamin levels as well as evaluating patients for alternative, non-pharmacological therapy methods like use of electrocranial therapy (a FDA approved treatment for anxiety, depression and insomnia without medication side-effects) are part of her treatment approach. Dr. Scott uses genetic drug sensitivity testing in patients who have difficulty tolerating psychotropic medications to maximize therapeutic benefit and minimize medication side effects. She integrates the newest research into her comprehensive psychiatric patient care. Dr. Scott has served the professional community as Vice President of the Bexar County Psychiatric Society and as a member of the Bereavement Education and Support Task Force. She is also a member of the American Psychiatric Association and the Texas Medical Association.
