Workers comp dr

Like everyone has said he works for the Workers Comp People he's a very heavy set man did not get up to greet me or my hubby nor acknowledge us really. Even took a phone call during the long 15 min we had a phone soliciter so it was very important. Lol. I was sent to him after 23 yrs of being perm disabled for a IME for the crooks Sedgewick CMS a third party company taking care of Kaisers W/C. Any way he barely look up at me from the paper he was writing on asked me a few questions about my injury, surgeries meds ect. Had me walk three steps one way and back the office was very tiny Had me bend my neck side to side and turn it side to side felt a few places on my body and that was it 15 mins all done 23 yrs and several surgeries a pain pump a stemulator and he took 15 mins to write his opinion Have no idea what he will say but I can guess after reading the reviews on here!!!

teacher

Like others have said, probably paid by the insurance company. He drove from Dallas to Houston. Huge man, didn't (or couldn't) even tie his shoes. Total waste of time. I asked if he had looked at my MRI, he said he had it. Definately audio tape your exam with him on your phone!

Very unprofessional

Zero stars was not a possible rating, so Dr. Sklar gets a single star. Some years ago I saw Dr. Sklar in Fort Worth for chronic pain in my neck. He was the third physician I had consulted about unexplained chronic neck pain. He determined that nothing was really terribly wrong with my neck. Actually it turns out that he was correct in his diagnosis. Dr. Sklar often referred to his own physical condition (he was morbidly obese) during my appointments, and I thought this was very unprofessional; certainly having him reference his own serious health issue during my appointment was pretty irrelevant and inconsiderate. Knowing that I had previously suffered from depression, he declared that I was depressed (yes, chronic pain can be very depressing) and prescribed the antidepressant Effexor. This was a huge mistake. Some weeks later I experienced a serious side effect of the drug Effexor. The side effect was tardive dyskinesia. When I suddenly quit taking the drug and told him the reason why, he claimed to be completely unfamiliar with the side effect I mentioned. "None of my other patients have complained about it". A serious gap in knowledge for a doctor prescribing very serious drugs. For a short while, over a period of a few months, I innocently put my life in his hands, but I would never again be his patient. He was unprofessional and unknowledgeable. Dangerous guy!

this is not a Dr of medicine or a back specialist.... THIS IS A SETUP!

Before attending John Sklar office i called a month before to make sure that the office had all my up to date M.R.I and present doctor information and they didn't have it so then i knew this was just another way to stop my benefits. well upon my visit with sklar, remind you me being the only patience there it took thirty minute, then when he came in he was very unprofessional and then had me walk on my heels, then my toes, and had me try and bend my back then i told sklar that i have the cd on my m.r.i and he said he didn't need it then told me he would send me something in the mail in two weeks.
