Dr. King's bio

This content was provided by Dr. King "Dr. Scottie L. King was born in Kentucky to a blue-collar coal mining family. When the coal mine was closed and Grandfather John King passed away with lung cancer, the King family moved away and settled in Arlington, Texas. After having grown up seeing his Grandfather and Father mining coal every day and struggling with related health problems, Dr. King decided that he wanted to pursue a profession that would improve people's health and battle sickness and disease. He plowed into his studies and graduated from the University of Texas at Arlington with a Bachelor's degree in Biology in 1993. In that same year, he was accepted into UT Southwestern as a medical student. He graduated from UT Southwestern in 1997 and conducted his residency at Parkland Memorial Hospital and Saint Paul Hospital. In 2000, he graduated and received his board certification as a Medical Doctor specializing in family practice. Since 2000, Dr. King has provided medical care for patients throughout the area, including Sachse, Wylie, Murphy, Garland, Mesquite, Rowlett, Denton, Dallas, Rockwall, Allen, McKinney, Tyler, Arlington, Ft. Worth.... "

Best doctor experience I've had in my 60 years. His entire staff is friendly and efficient. He spends time to explain certain conditions and makes certain you're taken care of. Most of all his bedside manner is awesome. You feel you're talking to a friend

Very flippant approach... not taking patient concerns seriously, asked for diet meds and he said for me to go back to the office with rolls of couns in mu pockets. He sucks. Now I cannot get my neurontin refilled which was ordered less than one year ago. What kind of a patient advocate are you?

Dr. King has been my doctor since 2008. He is by far the best doctor I've ever had. He is extremely competent, patient friendly and a true professional.
