About Us

Scott C. Hippeard, MD, PLC, is a solo physician general medical practice. Founded in 2016 by Dr. Scott Hippeard, this practice is dedicated to the continuing excellent medical care of every patient. From newborns to the elderly, from physical to mental issues, this practice encompasses every aspect of health at every stage of life. We offer on-site laboratory services and comprehensive care for acute and chronic medical issues. Minor surgical procedures are also offered.

Dr. Hippeard has been in the practice of medicine for 16 years, 9 of which have been in private medical practice here in Roanoke. His wife, Lisa, is the practice’s Office Manager. A graduate of Radford University (BSW/MSW), Lisa is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker by training. Tiffany Nolen, CMA, has been Dr. Hippeard’s nurse for 5 years and is greatly admired by her patients for her kindness, attention to detail and excellent clinical skills, especially phlebotomy. She received the Outstanding Student Award in her class upon graduation from National Business College. Courtney Hood, our receptionist, rounds out our medical office staff. Ms. Hood is a native of Salem and recent graduate of James Madison University with a Bachelor of Health Science. Ms. Hood plans to ultimately pursue a career in Occupational Therapy.

We are thrilled to embark upon this new clinical venture with the opening of Scott C. Hippeard MD, PLC in August 2016. We are delighted to be partnering with Privia Medical Group, who will provide financial management services for our office. By incorporating Athena EMR into our practice, we will greatly expand our patients’ ability to stay educated about their own health by offering such services as electronic access to medical and lab records as well as the ability to communicate with Dr. Hippeard and other staff members directly via email.
