I would highly recommend this doctor to others. Dr. Scandura takes the time to speak to you as a person first and then takes the time to explain things - he uses laymans terms and everyday analogies so that you really understand what he is saying. He is not an alarmist, but will follow up by phone if something appears to be wrong. Not many doctors do this anymore. He has made recommendations of other physicians for some of my friends and family who are dealing with cancer. Every doctor that was recommended by him turned out to be top notch! He is kind and considerate of my time and never makes me feel rushed and has never made me feel like a nuisance if I call with a question. He's a good listener, has great bedside manner, and is extremely professional! High marks for this Doc!
