Dr. Scott Newsome received his medical degree from the New York College of Osteopathic Medicine and graduated with honors. He then completed his internship in internal medicine and residency in neurology at Albany Medical Center. During Dr. Newsome’s neurology residency, he was awarded the Golden Apple Outstanding Resident Teaching Award and later was chosen to be chief resident.
