Leadership Team

Dr. Neil Yoder graduated from Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2005 and went on to become Board Certified in Emergency Medicine through St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center in Toledo, OH. Dr. Yoder also completed a fellowship in EMS Medicine from St. Vincent Mercy in Toledo, OH and served as a flight physician with the St. Vincent Life Flight air ambulance program. During the fellowship, Dr. Yoder became the Adult Medical Director for Kalitta Meflight air ambulance service in Ypsilanti Michigan. After fellowship, Dr. Yoder joined Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center in 2010 as part of the teaching faculty for the Conemaugh Emergency Medicine Residency Program. Dr. Yoder also served as Conemaugh's Medical Command Facility Medical Director, Medical Director of Air Methods' Medstar air ambulance program, and Medical Director of the Conemaugh EMS Consortium. Dr. Yoder then went on to create Apex Air Ambulance in 2011 after learning that a majority of fixed wing air ambulance companies and brokers were owned and operated by non-medical business people.  Apex Air Ambulance was formed to offer quality critical care transport to patients by a company that is truly owned and operated by medically licensed healthcare professionals. 

Scott Pattison joined Apex Air Ambulance in June of 2016, bringing a wealth of knowledge and skills to the team.  Scott is a graduate of Western Michigan University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Aviation Sciences.  He has spent the last 16 years in the aviation industry, with a special focus on fixed wing air ambulance operations.  Scott is also a registered nurse with several years of experience, working in a critical care environment.  Aviation and medicine have always been a passion of his, starting at a very young age.    Being able to combine his love of flying and helping people through their recovery process is what drives him everyday.
