Scott Zashin, MD is a clinical assistant professor at the University of Texas, Southwestern Medical School and maintains a private practice at Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas and Plano. Dr. Zashin takes an engaged, personal approach in caring for his arthritis patients. His style is unique for both the amount of time that he willingly spends with his patients, and the sincerity with which he gives care and advice.

Selected as a Best Doctor in America for the past 15 years, Dr. Zashin uses advanced medical techniques and the latest pharmaceutical treatments in his practice. His professorship at UT Southwestern Medical School, as well as his affiliation with professional organizations and involvement in clinical trials, ensures that he is at the forefront of advances in Rheumatology. Dr Zashin has seen dramatic improvements in many of his clients with the use of TNF blockers, the significance of which he details in his book, Arthritis Without Pain: The Miracle of TNF Blockers ; additionally, Dr. Zashin has seen some patients benefit from alternative medicine and non-pharmacological treatments in conjunction with conventional therapies. As a result, Dr. Zashin never automatically dismisses the potential benefit of an alternative treatment. His goal for every patient is to identify the best, safest and most effective therapy to reduce pain, increase function, and potentially improve your quality of life.
