Hi, my name is Scott Godfrey. I'm happy to have the opportunity to present my credentials to you and share some other information about myself. It's very important that you feel comfortable with your physician, and I hope this page will help you get to know me.
I grew up in Philadelphia. After completing my postgraduate medical training in my home town, I relocated to sunny Southern California, where I have practiced at Kaiser Permanente since 1991.
Practicing medicine, and oncology in particular, is a unique opportunity to connect with and help people in often-challenging circumstances. It is a privilege to help patients navigate through difficult therapy decisions, understand what concerns them, facilitate getting them the appropriate evaluations, and communicating with them and their families. I feel very honored that patients have entrusted me with their care, and strive to treat them as I would my own family.
To maintain a balance between work and play I enjoy the outdoors, take in a Padres game, and go on the occasional fishing or sailing trip to re-energize myself. I enjoy hiking and skiing.
