Fairfax, VA |
I have been seeing Dr Sklar for 6 years. He is one of my favorite doctors I've ever seen. He is straight forward, listens to my concerns and explains anything I ask him to. I have never left his office feeling like I'm not important to him. I have no intentions of ever finding a new neurologist and would recommend him to anyone needing his expertise. I also love the front desk staff. They are the friendliest bunch of ladies I've been blessed to meet. I would say more nice things, but no space!

A very kind and great guy. Go visit him.

I wouldn't send my worst enemy to this Doctor! His lack of empathy is deplorable! He is unfriendly, has little ability to talk with the patient and pretty much reads results from a computer screen without addressing the patient directly. I found him condescending and rude. I hope his parents are never treated the way he treated mine! His lack of understanding regarding dementia is actually terrifying!

Dr. Sklar has treated my mother for dementia and presumed Alzheimer's disease for 3 years. While pleasant and no doubt skilled in other areas of neurology, he has either very little interest or expertise in this condition. After a year, his clinical evaluation of her cognitive and memory ability amounted to asking for her opinion and what day it was. No preparation, probing, assessment or evaluation. Our time: chit chat, review chart, vitals, 2 questions & refill. We will look for another doctor

Clinic staff, front desk and his nurses were polite, efficient and competent. Dr Sklar though he was competent and helped w my condition, failed to explain the tests I was to endure and how painful they would be. His cellphone went off not once but TWiCE and he had the gall to stop and text in the middle of my consultation. This happened AGAIN on my follow up and I am saddened that an otherwise decent practice has someone with such terrible bedside manner and no professionalsm. Would not return.
