Dr. Scott Davidson

Downtown. Roper Hospital, 316 Calhoun St. 724-2111

Where in the world is the best physician in Charleston? No one seems to know. Dr. Davidson was voted the best physician, but the man’s as elusive as Waldo in a crowd.

He did his residency in South Carolina from 1994 to 1997, then went to practice in Florida before returning to Charleston in 2000. Most of his patients know him from his private practice at East Cooper Medical, where he stayed for five years, but this past November he seemed to vanish. There were rumors that he is now part of the Roper St. Francis Hospital system, but they told us people call there all the time looking for Dr. Davidson and they have no idea where to find him. Google-stalking finally turned up the desired Scott Davidson on the Beach Advisory Committee of Isle of Palms. He does work at Roper, but sees only inpatients — so if you want the best physician in Charleston, you’ll have to get yourself hospitalized.
