About our Doctors
Dr. Evzen O. Burian
Dr. Evzen Burian, who we lovingly refer to as “Dr. B”, has gained over 40 years of veterinary experience over a very diverse and interesting career.
Dr. Burian has also received extensive training in the field of veterinary dentistry and from 1975 to 1982 he served as a member of the Czechoslovak Academy in the capacity of lecturer for post-doctoral continuing education classes in both veterinary surgery and dentistry.
He has an avid interest and concern for exotic species and wildlife which inspired him to complete a post-doctoral Master of Science in Wildlife and Game Management. Combining his skills as surgeon and wildlife biologist, Dr. Burian became a recognized authority in surgical techniques for birds of prey. His publications in this field led to an invitation from Cornell University to lecture on his techniques and exchange experience. Because at this time his native country was under communist rule, Dr. Burian defected to the United States in 1982. After obtaining his U.S. license to practice veterinary medicine, Dr. Burian worked as a surgeon for a five doctor veterinary hospital in Austin, Texas until 1989.
In 2017, Dr. Burian transferred ownership of Providence Square Veterinary Clinic to Dr. Alexandra Bedford. He continues to provide advanced surgical and dental care to our clients and through veterinary referrals from his colleagues in Eastern Virginia and North Carolina.
“Dr. B” resides in Virginia Beach with his wife, Paula and his Chihuahua, Gio, our clinic mascot.
Dr. Deborah Scarborough
Dr. Scarborough earned her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree in 1996, at North Carolina State University. She has a special interest in exotic species and began her professional career studying the behavioral ecology of desert amphibians and reptiles at the University of California at Riverside.
Later she owned and operated Azalea Coast Animal Care, a small animal, exotic and avian veterinary clinic in North Carolina for eight years. She relocated to Virginia Beach in 2009 and we were fortunate to have her join Providence Square Veterinary Clinic and Referral Services. She brings extensive experience in avian and exotic medicine, as well as small animal medicine and surgery. Her mild-mannered approach to veterinary medicine brings comfort to her patients as well as their owners.
Dr. Scarborough lives in Virginia Beach with her husband, David. They share their home with a cat named Katie, Sammy a yellow-collared macaw, a guinea pig named Elmo and her rescued Bichon, Pritsy, who enjoys coming to work with her each morning.
Dr. Alexandra Bedford
Dr. Bedford, the second Dr. B, purchased Providence Square Veterinary Clinic from Dr. Burian in 2017. She graduated in 2002 from the Ontario Veterinary College, University of Guelph, in Canada. Having practiced ambulatory equine medicine for years, in addition to small animal medicine and surgery, she is happy to see any of your miniature horse companions. Her interests include dermatology, endocrinology, veterinary dentistry, oral surgery, geriatrics and internal medicine.
