On August 15 2011 Dr. Scarbrough operated on my Parotid gland normally 99% benign. On August 19 2011 I was diagnosed with Acinic Cell Carcinoma. My surgery was complicated and lengthy. Dr. Scarbrough did a miraculous surgery missing all 8 facial nerves in my face negating paralysis on the left side of my face. I went through 7 weeks of radiation and during this time Dr. Scarbrough and his nurse Kathleen Histand were with me through this whole time. I cannot find the words to describe the professionalismkindness and care that Dr. Scarbrough and Kathleen have showed me. Although I've had a total of 9 doctors during this 'cancer process' Dr. Scarbrough and Kathleen shine above all these doctors.


This doctor was punctual and courteous. He was also very knowledgeable and knew what my issue was based off my symptoms. My ear was unclogged in a matter of minutes and I am truly grateful for staff like this.
