Stephen L. Scranton, M.D., F.A.C.P.
Dr. Scranton is a physician in the Tampa Florida area, with a dual practice in the leading-edge field of improving the cognitive functions of the brain, as well as traditional Internal Medicine.
He began his training in pre-medicine and pharmacy at the University of Wyoming. He received his medical degree from Northwestern University Medical School in 1977, and continued his internship and residency in Internal Medicine at Northwestern’s McGaw Medical Center.
In 1981 he was commissioned as a Captain in the United States Airforce, and was assigned as an internist at MacDill Air Force Base, home of the United States Central Command and the Rapid Deployment Joint Task Force in Tampa Florida. In this position, he was responsible for patient care, both for the clinic and hospital, physician education, consultant to pharmacy and therapeutics, and was co-chairman of the intensive care unit.
In 1984 he entered private medical practice in the Tampa area with a variety of physician groups. In 1989 he became the chairman of practice management for the Mease Clinic, and in that role, significantly improved the clinic’s financial strength while continuing to serve the Dunedin area patient base.

In 2002 he formed his own independent Internal Medicine practice in Clearwater, which continues to this day.
In 2008, after 2 years of research on the aging brain and rehab options, he initiated one of the first specialty medical practices in the United States, focusing on brain rehab for the elderly. His research into the various treatments for the loss of brain function, either due to trauma, aging, or other medical reasons has led to a new direction for treatment. His work in this field has resulted in recognition through out the United States from the medical community.
Dr. Scranton and his team have evaluated approximately 9,000 patients and have treated approximately 3,500 patients in the area of brain function enhancement, with 80 – 90% of all patients experiencing a meaningful improvement.
