Our passion is helping people. We are here to provide the best dermatologic care possible; we take a whole body approach, improving the skin and overall health by getting to the source of the problem for each individual. From skin cancer screening and treatment to personalized solutions for acne, eczema, and other skin conditions, you can expect the best care from our team at Mountain Pine Dermatology.

R. Scott Thomas, DO, FAAD, FAOCD

Richard Scott Thomas is a board-certified dermatologist who grew up in the Treasure Valley. After graduating from Nampa High School, he served a 2-year LDS mission in Madrid, Spain where he became fluent in Spanish.  His BS in Biology with a minor in Spanish was obtained from Brigham Young University.  After his undergraduate studies, he attended medical school at A.T. Still University/Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine in Kirksville, Missouri.  After a Transitional Internship at Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center in Corvallis, Oregon, Dr. Thomas completed his Dermatology Residency training at Western University of Health Sciences/Silver Falls Dermatology in Salem, Oregon.


At a young age, Dr. Thomas was taught by his parents to always put himself in the shoes of others.  This invaluable lesson gravitated him towards the field of dermatology as it allows him to treat physical dermatologic conditions while also treating the emotional well-being of patients.  Additionally, Dr. Thomas appreciates the diversity within the specialty, which allows him to treat conditions such as acne, warts, more chronic skin diseases such as psoriasis and rosacea, perform various cosmetic procedures, and treat potentially life threatening skin cancer.


Treating skin cancer is of particular interest to Dr. Thomas as he received extensive Mohs micrographic surgery training during residency. He is a fellow of the American Society for Mohs Surgery.

Dr. Thomas is an avid sports fan, especially of BYU football and Utah Jazz basketball. His other hobbies include hiking, travelling, site seeing, running, and spending his free time with his wife and children.  He is extremely grateful to be back home in the Treasure Valley.
