Patient Comments (1)
in Beckley, WV |
Save your life... go elsewhere! Incompetent, unorganized, bumbling fool. My husband was unknowingly in stage 3 kidney failure when he first went to Dr. Sklar for his high blood pressure. Dr. Sklar neglected to mention that small fact. Three years later husband is in end stage renal disease and Sklar was well aware of the progression. NEVER did he tell us my husband had kidney disease until his kidneys were in the final days of failing. Run, run, run to another doctor.
