This was my first visit with Dr. Skarbnik and I was very apprehensive about what his diagnosis might be. However, he put me at ease immediately and made me feel extremely comfortable. It is apparent that he is forward thinking, compassionate, and knowledgeable in his field. I look forward to working with him and with his capable and friendly nurse, Carla.
