TRIBUTE TO DR. SCOTT:   After Dr. Scott's peaceful passing at the age of 87 in late 2011, still active as doctor - this website will remain as is, as a tribute to Dr. Scott. The institute will be under renovation & upgrade during the winter months. The plan is to resume operations in the spring of 2012.
