It is with great sadness and joy in announcing the retirement of Dr. Michael Joseph Scobie. He has been an integral part of the community of Carroll County and has touched the lives of thousands of children.

Originally from Eau Claire, Wisconsin; Dr Scobie, or “Scooby” to some, started an illustrious career in medicine upon graduating from medical school from Universidad Autonoma de Guadalajara, Mexico in 1981 and moving to Maryland in 1982. Upon finishing his Pediatric residency at St. Agnes Hospital under the guidance of Dr. Frederick Heldrich, Dr. Scobie started his career as a General Pediatrician in Carroll County. On July 1, 1986 he, along with Dr. Charles Ashburn, joined Dr. Karl Green and forged what is now Carroll Children’s Center.

As a young physician starting out, Dr. Scobie helped save many lives while working at Carroll County General Hospital as one of the few Pediatricians in the delivery room and Emergency room while still seeing patients at the office. He has held many board positions at Carroll County General Hospital, Washington Heights Medical Center, and the Carroll Children’s Fund. He has helped many generations of families stay healthy and grow during his 35 years at Carroll Children’s Center.

On the rare occasions Dr. Scobie is not in the office; many have caught him on the trails with his family and his Great Pyrenees dogs.

We wish Dr. Scobie well as he starts his next chapter of a wonderful life and career. We hope he will enjoy traveling, hiking, and relaxing with his family and his dogs starting in September.
