Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Amazing doctor. Can’t reach her at all or get an appointment with her. Never called me back when I had a medical question about the vaccine. Just left a message with another doctor.

Dr. Skarimbas is an amazing physician. She is an amazing diagnostician and takes the time to listen and understand me. As an accident victim, I have relied on Dr. Skarimbas to manage many aspects of my recovery. She has always reassured, encouraged, and help me manage complex medical issues. She builds a trusting relationship and is beyond knowledable, patient, and easy to talk to.

I saw Dr. Skarimbas as I was searching for a new doctor closer to where I live. I chose her based on the good reviews she received that I researched on the internet. I didn't need her to do anything at the time. I just needed a family doctor. She was very professional and caring. I felt very comfortable with her. She answered the questions I had and was very thorough. I am glad I found her. I can definitely see why she is highly recommended.

My wife and I have had Dr. Skarimbas as our family physician for nearly eight years and she is by far the finest doctor we've ever had. She is extremely bright, totally on top of knowhow and skills, and is as caring as a physician can be. She makes great eye contact and listens with patience and sensitivity to your questions and comments. We also appreciate that her aim to do the most good with the best economy of time and resources. She's the best, so hang onto her!

Dr S was knowledgeable, personable, kind, had a wonderful bedside manner. I'm a new patient & she took time to listen to & discuss everything I brought up. I didn't feel rushed at all which has been my experience with most other doctors in my 40+ years. She explained why she recommended certain things instead of just telling me to take them. The only bad feedback is with certain staff members who were unprofessional (addressing me, talking to ea. other)...but "Deanna" was a pleasant exception!

People rave about Dr. Skarimbas, and I can see why. I've been her patient for years and was perfectly happy, but when a recent accident and surgery landed me in the hospital and rehab for a couple weeks, her excellent care, coordination with my specialists, clinical skills and bedside manner really showed. I honestly felt I was being cared for by the best doctor possible.
