Dr. Scott is great. He is very thorough and kind. He and his staff made the gastric sleeve process and surgery easy to understand. His office staff is top notch. They are excellent at every step of the journey.

He's good! The surgery went extremely well. While I realize everyone is different, friends were amazed at how fast I recovered. Dr. Scott is very personable and took the time to explain the surgery to me. I would recommend him to friends and family members...total trust! :)
