This year, Dr. Kyle Scarborough is celebrating his 25th anniversary as a physician in the Lake Conroe area.
He practiced in Richmond Texas after completing his Family Practice residence. In 1993 he was given an opportunity to join the Sadler Clinic. He met with the co-founders of the clinic, Dr. Dean Sadler, Dr. Irv Watson, and Dr. Walter Wilkerson.
“I liked the group and loved the area, so my wife and I decided to make the Conroe area our home.”
The mission of Family life Medical is to provide comprehensive primary medical care to family members of all ages.
Patients today face a bewildering array of insurance options, regulations, escalating premiums, and alternatives to traditional medicine. The internet also provides an enormous amount of medical information but it is getting harder to discern objective information from a sales pitch.
Patients need a doctor who will also be their advocate and advisor.
“I try to provide health care and education to my patients, and objective counsel regarding treatment options that are in their best interest.”
The Family Life Medical clinic offers care for the entire family, including wellness exams, diabetes care, hypertension treatment, geriatric care, well woman exam, school physicals, and pre-ops and hospital follow ups. In addition to general medical care, Dr. Scarborough’s practice provides a wide range of dermatology services, including removal of skin lesions and biopsies when appropriate.
Dr. Scarborough recognizes the need to keep up with the changing demands of medical care as well as high patient expectations.
“I have evolved my practice to be more comprehensive, providing requested services that patients want and expect including an updated website for patients to access their labs, make appointments, or get health records through a secured patient portal”, shared Dr. Scarborough. “We have also expanded our clinic to include skin care, facial rejuvenation, tattoo removal, and Dysport treatment.”
Dr. Scarborough got his start in multi-specialty and hospital groups. But he is relishing his role as an independent physician and local business owner.
“As an independent provider of health care, I am not required to support any other medical provider, specialist, or network of treatment. I have great support staff and well-established medical specialists in the community I recommend. The best compliment is overhearing patients bragging on our staff saying that our practice is welcoming and feels like a family community of support.”
Dr. Scarborough says that many new patients come to after seeing his name in The Dock Line or in The Courier, where he writes a weekly column “What’s Going Around”, focusing on current health topics.
“The majority of my new patients, though, come from word of mouth referrals from family, friends, and co-workers. I always try to honor those recommendations.”
When asked about any retirement plans, Dr. Scarborough says “I’m not going away anytime soon!” He and his staff are making plans to expand their facility and range of services in the near future.
