Initial visit as my new Primary Care Physician, previous one whom I really liked moved out of state. I was a bit apprehensive, but need not to have been. Dr. Scarola was warm, personal, and complete. I am looking forward to having Dr.scarola as my primary care physician.

I really like Dr. Chad Scarola He makes me feel important when we talk. I know doctors are busy and he has limited time for each patient, but, I don't get the feeling I'm rushed when I see him for anything. He's efficient, but doesn't give me the impression he's rushing me through.

Dr Scarola and the staff at Kootenai Clinc have always been courteous and helpful to me when I have visited. I consider myself fortunate to be a patient of Dr Scarola. Getting out at all is an ordeal for me, but visiting Kootenai Clinic has always been a good experience, and they have been very helpful to me over the years. I'd recommend them to any and all.

Thorough, listened, follow through, had a full plan for my medical care. I was very impressed. I was happy I waited the months it took to get in to see him. I am glad I read the reviews and did not get impatient with the long wait time to get into his office. If you are looking for a doctor and a clinic that will see you when you need to be seen; listen to you!! Then this is the doctor and facility.
