A Utah County native and father of four, Dr. Scott Stroshine dreamed of becoming a pediatrician. Even so, he was surprised by how much he loved working with kids and their parents. Though he’d initially planned to pursue a pediatric fellowship, he says that the more time he spent working with patients in the clinic, the more he realized his favorite part of medicine was building relationships with families.
Dr. Stroshine is a fan of all sports and was himself a student-athlete. When injuries ended his football career, he says the experience that followed is something he draws on now as a doctor. “I realized that physicians play an important part in some of the most significant moments of our lives. I hope to make those moments as positive as possible.” That memory helps him to maintain his compassion when his patients and their families are in similar situations.
His philosophy on working with kids is to not only provide excellent care, but also to work closely with parents to provide the most wonderful childhood possible for his patients. As a pediatrician, he enjoys working with kids of all ages, but has a particular interest in children’s sports medicine and behavioral concerns.
In his free time, Dr. Stroshine enjoys being with his family—playing golf or basketball, going camping or doing just about anything sports-related.
Dr. Stroshine speaks English and Spanish.
Dr. Stroshine confesses to being a terrible cook. He’s been working on it but does better with a grill. Someday, he’d also like to learn to play the piano.
