Great Experience

Recommended by my primary care physician and was very pleased with him and his staff. I had two procedures done and he was nothing informative as well as professional. Follow up was prompt. I will be a returning patient.

Patient

This is the second procedure I've had with Dr. Skarda and I was pleased with both of them. It's ashame only the negative is posted. People rarely take the time to post positive comments.

Poor professional judgement;unethical

Dr Skarda used poor professional judgement by diagnosing me without proof. Instead of waiting on the results of the biopsy he gave an inaccurate diagnosis which was both unprofessional and unethical. Fortunately I sought further assistance/treatment with positive results. Had I given up and prepared to die as the doctor suggested I would have died and robbed of my life's precious experiences. My grandson was born three months ago and according to Dr Skarda I should have died six months ago.
