I have been more than impressed with Dr. Scarborough! This doctor, surgeon, & most of all, human, has treated me with respect from day one. If you want a physician who spends time with you on an office visit, listens, and cares about you as a patient, then drive yourself over to 1200 Binz. Dr. Scarborough did my weight loss surgery in 2008 and has been encouraging to me in good times, and bad. I attribute my success and healthier lifestyle to him and would encourage others who suffer from obesity to do the same.
