As usual, Dr Scarola was, on time, attentive, thorough in his explanation of my condition and included all my concerns in the treatment planning. Would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone seeking medical care. He is a significant cut above the standard of medical community practice. Paul Alvarez, EdD, LicPsy (CA).

Dr Scarola has a comforting and friendly style, abundant knowledge and talent and gives good primary care to patients. He addresses my health history, concerns and symptoms as a concerned professional . He is a good listener and puts me at ease, so that I can speak clearly about whatever is affecting me. His medical knowledge is applied effectively and at the same time is delivered in a genuinely humble and friendly way. I was lucky to find him and his practice 8 years ago

In my experience, Doctor Scarola has a genuine interest in his patients. He listens to their concerns and recommends a course of action. He uses all the medical resources necessary to solve a medical problem. In one problem I had, after physical exam and ordering the indicated medical tests, he suggest that I see a specialist. In my opinion, the specialist he suggested was extremely well qualified. When I had a different problem, on another occasion, he simply gave me a prescription.

he has been my doctor for over 12 years now and has never once proved to be inaccurate. not only does he answer all questions diligently, he has himself suffered from and survived from health crises that most patients fear and thus has a level of compassion that cannot be expected elsewhere.

I had a recent visit with Dr. Scarola and was very pleased with the fact that he doesn't seem to be in a hurry and he takes the time needed to find out what my problem might be. I would recommend Dr. Scarola to anyone who needs a medical doctor. I always feel better about my situation when I leave. Dannie Drapeau
