My husband has pancreatic cancer and it is difficult to find the right gastroenterology doctor familiar with the Whipple Surgery. We couldn't be happier with Dr. Scott and his team. Very knowledgeable. Got us right in and we are so relieved to have found him. Highly recommended!!!

We are extremely pleased with Dr. Scott's level of care concerning our 18 year old son with Ulcerative Colitis. To my amazement, calls to his office are not only returned in a timely manner, usually within a couple of hours, but Dr. Scott calls, himself. Very rare these days.
