Scot Flynn, PA-C
Scot Flynn is a board-certified Physician Assistant and graduate of Long Island University’s class of 2008 in Brooklyn, New York. He completed his undergraduate studies in Psychology and Sociology from the University of San Diego in 2000. Upon graduation, he worked in the field of developmental-behavioral pediatrics until 2002. It was this exposure to medicine and psychopharmacology that laid the foundation for his future career in Psychiatry and addiction medicine.
After these two years of working with children and adolescents with developmental disabilities, Scot moved to Spain and lived in Catalunia before returning to the US to complete his pre-medical coursework at Southern Connecticut State University in 2004. While applying to Physician Assistant programs, Scot worked as a licensed Emergency Medical Technician at Providence Memorial Hospital in El Paso, Texas. In 2006, he began his medical training as a Physician Assistant with LIU. With a long-standing interest in mental health, Scot accepted a position with Yale University’s Bridgeport Hospital Department of Psychiatry soon after graduation in 2008.
PA Flynn has over ten years of extensive experience working in both inpatient and outpatient clinical settings. In 2011, he accepted a research position with CCR and has remained very happy working in Austin as an investigator in clinical trials. In 2012, Scot continued his interest in Addiction Psychiatry treating patients with substance use disorders.
When PA Flynn is not working, he spends his free time traveling the world as well as volunteering in medically underserved countries such as Mexico and Costa Rica. He has traveled across the globe from Africa to the middle east, South America, and far eastern Europe. Scot’s clinical approach to Psychiatry reflects his long-standing belief that every individual should have the opportunity to live up to their fullest potential, and that a compassionate and educated approach to treating all spectrums of mental health disorders can facilitate this.
I’ve been coming here since my other psychiatrist retired early this year, and I’m super happy with how accommodating Scott has been. He always returns my calls when I have questions, and Nancy makes sure I always get my refills even last minute when I forget I’m running out. Before I came to see Scott I was always afraid to switch my medication even though it wasn’t working that well, but I’m so glad I did. Scott is very knowledgeable about medication, and I definitely recommend this place.
