Scott Shuford, RN, MSN, AOCNP

As a primary care nurse practitioner, Scott is responsible for patient health assessments focusing on primary care diagnosis, chronic disease management, and acute illness management. “I approach each and every patient from the perspective that the outcome of my assessment could potentially alter their life.”  With that always front of mind, he treats each patient with empathy and understanding. 

Scott’s approach is to educate his patients, so they understand his thought process when he orders tests or develops a plan of care.  His willingness to listen with compassion is something he offers each patient and, he feels, is reflective of DAP Health’s mission. “It’s very, very patient-centric and patient oriented, and it gives me an opportunity to use all of the skills that I have.”

Originally from San Diego, Scott moved to the desert in 2021 and has since taken up golf. He also enjoys photography and travel.  He’s been on an Alaskan cruise seven times or, as he likes to say, “so many times I could narrate it.” He has also spent time in Mexico and the Caribbean.

Prior to joining DAP Health, Scott spent 13 years working in oncology both as a nurse practitioner as well as a volunteer educator.  He was part of California’s Breast Cancer Early Detection Project and traveled around the state teaching physicians and other clinicians in underserved communities about breast cancer including how to do a proper breast exam and what workups should be done.  Scott was also involved with an end-of-life nursing education consortium where he taught nurses about the end-of-life experience and how to manage and care for a patient.

Scott brings many years of experience in a wide variety of positions - and several degrees and certifications - to DAP Health. In addition to working in the operating room and intensive care units in hospitals, he has also worked in internal medicine, pulmonary care and end of life and pain management. “I’m a nurse first and foremost. There are about 12 letters after my name, but the first two are the ones I'm most proud of. And those are RN.”

DAP Health clinicians, including Scott provide the latest HIV/AIDS treatments in a safe, judgment free environment. They are skilled in working with LGBTQ+ individuals to craft treatments that work and enhance their patients' quality of life. Services includes HIV testing; STI screening; linkage to care; HIV medications, including antiretrovirals, PEP and PrEP; patient education; mental health services; dental services; and more.

Matt Reynolds, NP

 

Matthew Reynolds (he/him/his) is an Adult Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner and HIV Specialist with training in anal dysplasia and High Resolution Anoscopy. Prior to joining DAP Health in April 2022, he worked at East Bay Advanced Care/Alta Bates Summit Medical Center in Oakland. He also gained experience during his time with the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) Reach, Home, and MDOT Studies; VA Health Care System/ICU in Palo Alto; and at the UCSF Clinician Consultation Center in San Francisco.

"I absolutely love being witness to my patients’ accomplishments related to their health and well-being. Whether that be getting to a better place emotionally through work on themselves, getting into school, overcoming their substance use challenges, obtaining a weight that better supports their health and happiness, or simply taking their medications more consistently, I am equally proud of these strides forward."

Matt has an approachable, responsive, and honest relationship with his patients. He's committed to providing an environment that is judgment free, where anything can be discussed, and always having his patient’s best interests and stated needs in mind. Equally important—probably most important to him—he loves to smile and laugh. "I can promise my patients that I will, even if only momentarily, bring a smile to their face at some point or another."

His connection with his patients is further grounded in getting to know them beyond their lab values, the way their heart sounds, etc. He tries to couch conversations with patients as "one human being talking out solutions to health problems with another human being,” where both are contributing to the dialogue, solution, and goal. "I cannot place a value on what it means to me to be that person that my patients turn to when they need help, some understanding, or simply an ear to listen."

Matt completed his undergraduate work in Psychology at San Francisco State University and received his Masters of Science in Nursing at UCSF. He's done volunteer work in a number of capacities including as an HIV counselor; cycling with the AIDS LifeCycle; donating massage therapy services to other AIDS LifeCycle participants; as a community advisory board member for the AIDS Health Project in San Francisco; as a nurse practitioner for LGBTQIA events in San Francisco; and as preceptor for nurse practitioner students from the UCSF’s HIV nurse practitioner program.

In his spare time, Matt loves being outdoors, traveling, and spending time with his family and his cat, Simba. And continued self-growth is also important to him. "I have a pretty longstanding practice to help me continue to grow as a person. This includes meditation, therapy, and being of service."
