Dr. Plott is originally from Lubbock, Texas. He graduated from Bethany, Oklahoma’s Frenship High School and Southern Nazarene University.

During his high school years, he finished enough coursework to become an orderly at St. Mary’s Hospital his senior year. As a college student, he worked in Baptist Medical Center’s emergency room (located in Oklahoma City).

Dr. Plott’s Emergency Room Experience Forms the Foundation for his Future

Dr. Plott enjoyed the experience so much that it set the tone for the rest of his career:

“Working in the ER was one of the most exciting experiences of my life,” said Dr. Plott. “I couldn’t wait to go into work to see what challenges the evening would bring – we were able to help so many people. I learned how to care for people in life and death situations.”

During his college years, he became friends with another intern, Dr. Scott Dinehart. His new friend told him to attend medical school at the University of Texas in Galveston. Dr. Plott took his advice, and has since become one of the leading dermatologists in the nation.

Dr. Plott Identifies His Passion in Dermatology

While attending medical school, Dr. Dinehart again gave strong advice to Dr. Plott. This time, he recommended Dr. Plott apply for a research grant in the department of dermatology. Dr. Plott again took his friend’s advice. Eventually, he won a national research competition for dermatology students for his research on vitiligo, a condition that depigments the skin.

Inspired by this achievement, Dr. Plott pursued his residency at the University of Arkansas. While there, he again researched vitiligo. He then continued his pursuit of research at the National Cancer Institute in Bethesda, MD. Many of the United States’ leading clinicians research there, trying to discover modern medicine’s latest innovations.
