Dr. Scholer was raised in Augusta (but he usually leaves out the fact that he was actually born in Rochester, NY while his father completed his post-doctoral studies in Endocrinology). He is an alumnus of Davidson Fine Arts Magnet School, the University of Georgia College of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences, and the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine.
After graduation from the UGA College of Veterinary Medicine, he stayed on at UGA and completed a rotating internship in Surgery, Internal Medicine, and Emergency and Critical Care before accepting a job at a busy veterinary practice in the Atlanta area. While he was there, he met and fell head over heels for Megan, a high school teacher who was way out of his league. Eventually his persistence paid off and she agreed to marry him. They moved to the CSRA in 2010 and have both worked in the area since then. Together they have two young sons (Jax and Mick), two mutts (Jersey and Abby), and a very tolerant cat (Richard Parker). Dr. Scholer’s professional interests include Internal Medicine, Soft Tissue Surgery, Ophthalmology, and Endocrinology. When he’s not at Hill Top, he enjoys dining out with his family, grilling at home, and exercising (mainly to counteract the first two hobbies). He prefers Coca Cola over Pepsi, Xbox over Playstation, and The Beatles over Elvis.
