Scott Ravis, M.D. FAAD

Board-Certified Dermatologist


Meet Dr. Ravis

Born and raised in Kansas City, Dr. Scott Ravis has practiced dermatology in the Kansas City metro area for the last 18 years. He earned his undergraduate degree in Pharmacy from the University of Kansas. He then attended the University of Kansas School of Medicine, graduating with honors as a member of Alpha Omega Alpha. Subsequently, he served his dermatology residency at the University of Miami. Following his residency, Dr. Ravis completed a fellowship in dermatopathology at the University of Indiana.

Dr. Ravis’s work as a dermatopathologist provides him with the expertise of both a clinician who treats patients and a pathologist who evaluates and diagnoses specimens under a microscope. Dr. Ravis’s dual training is an invaluable tool for treating patients because it allows him to correlate the changes in a patient’s skin microscopically with the patient’s lesion or rash as detected on physical examination, to render the most accurate diagnosis. This is especially important in complex cases, allowing Dr. Ravis to efficiently render accurate diagnoses and develop more specific treatment protocols for his patients.


He also specializes in Mohs surgery, which has become the standard and most effective treatment for most types of skin cancer. Dr. Ravis is a triple board-certified dermatologist. He is board-certified in dermatology, dermatopathology, and Mohs surgery. He has been recognized by Castle Connoly as a Top Doctor for the last 15 years. His many professional accomplishments include recognition as a Fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology, the American Society of Dermatopathology, and the American Society of Mohs Surgeons. He has multiple papers that have been published in peer-reviewed journals.

When Dr. Ravis is not practicing dermatology, he enjoys spending time with his family and his two dogs. He also enjoys traveling, eating barbecue, and rooting for the Chiefs and the Jayhawks.
