About Scott A. Boruchow, MD

  • Dr. Boruchow was born and raised in the Philadelphia suburbs and lived in Maine, New York City, and Boston before coming to Austin in 2013. In his free time, Dr. Boruchow enjoys spending time with his wife and two children, “exploring places near and far.” He also enjoys hiking, kayaking, running, playing tennis, and playing guitar. Among his favorite Central Texas spots is Inks Lake State Park.

I have always been fascinated by the marvels and complexity of the human brain, and am excited when I am able to determine the root cause of a patient’s symptoms. I find the detective work in neurology to be complex and challenging, but also satisfying. I always advocate for my patients’ best interests, recognizing that the ‘right’ treatment for one individual may not be the right approach for another. I provide support by understanding their goals and helping them accomplish those goals as best I can. I greatly enjoy getting to know my patients and working together to devise a solid treatment plan to improve their quality of life.

    I was grateful to Dr. Boruchow for working me in to see him. We were overseas until mai 13th. On April 1st, I had a bad fall while in France, hit my head and face suffering a slight concussion and laceration. I was not able to walk or go out for over two weeks. Dr. Boruchow knew how frightened and fragile I was, both physically and emotionally. I had actually called him from France, and his assistant scheduled an appointment for me. Dr. Boruchow immediately saw me mai 15th, two days after I got back to Austin. He has always been very kind and empathetic to me, and always patient and comforting. If I hadn't found him many years ago, I wouldn't have felt secure without his treatment of me. My balance problems, falls, tremor, and in toto my brain are under his brilliant care. A nicer person you could not meet! Also, thanks to his assistant for her TLC!

    Finally, a doctor took interest in my history of seizures, examined test results, and asked me to describe symptoms! Thank you for listening, and for your thoughtful diagnosis. I know we stil have to confirm what has been proposed, but we’re on a good track….

    The survey asked if it was easy to make an appointment. The real question should be, "how satisfied were you with getting an appointment? Making an appointment is easy. Trying to get one when you need one is much more difficult.
