During his high school years, he finished enough coursework to become an Emergency Medical Technician and later worked as an orderly at St. Mary’s Hospital during 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 an 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.
Dr. Plott Makes Major Contributions to the Field of Dermatology
After finishing his studies, Dr. Plott served in several major pharmaceutical compaines, helping them create prescription dermatology drugs. Today, thousands of patients across the United States use these prescriptions regularly.
You might recognize the name of Dr. Plott’s most notable prescription invention, Solodyn Extended-Release Capsules. They help treat acne vulgaris, and have become the preferred prescription among dermatologists.
Dr. Plott has also developed many other prominent prescriptions while working with major companies and the FDA. Some of his most notable contributions to medicine include Penlac Nail Laquer, Noritate Cream, Carac Cream, Lotrisone Lotion, Loprox Shampoo, Triaz Pads, Vanos Cream, and Ziana Gel.
More than 30 Years of Experience in Research and Patient Care
He began his career as a paramedic in high school. During college, he worked in an emergency room. He then moved on to Texas Tech’s Health Sciences Center, where he worked in the Department of Pathology. He attended medical school at the University of Texas, and performed his residency at the University of Arkansas. Finally, he studied in Bethesda, Maryland as a Fellow at the National Cancer Institute.
Throughout his 16 years working in the pharmaceutical industry, Dr. Plott monitored thousands of patients and hundreds of clinical trials.
In 2009, he moved back to his home state of Texas, but this time to the DFW metroplex. Since opening his first office in Keller in May of 2011, Dermatology ALliance has served over 37,000 patients. The Keller office serves patients from Fort Worth, Haslet, Watauga, Blue Mound, Saginaw, and Westlake. In 2014 he opened a second office Coppell to serve patients in Lewisville, Flower Mound, Carrollton, Grapevine, Colleyville. And in December of 2016, Dr. Chris Fuller joined Dr. Plott to launch the third office in Roanoke, TX. The Roanoke office is designed to have a familiar personal hometown feel, and a big departure from the bland-looking medical office. This new office serves Southlake, Trophy Club, Westlake, North Richard Hills, Hurst, Bedford, and Euless.
