Specialties

Dr. Shayne T Skarda has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

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.

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.
