Dr. Skaribas is the best pain management provider I have ever seen! I did not want to be on pain medications the rest of my life and he listened, understood and gave me my life back! The DRG implant has changed my life and my way of thinking. I now look forward to being able to literally run after my grandchildren. Before the implant running wasn't something I gave much thought to! Thank you for being the Dr. That cares!

Dr. Skaribas is a fantastic doctor. He explains everything very well and when you leave his office you are confident and understand everything he has to say. I fully trust him and for the first time in two years I was able to walk up the stairs.

I recently started seeing Dr Skaribas. It did not take long into my first visit to decide that if he would have me as a patient I would leave the pain Dr I was seeing. I find he is very easy to talk to , he explains and makes sure you are comfortable with the answer. He has given me options for pain management that I did not know about. I also love the staff, if I call they are good at getting me answers to any questions and taking care of thing.
in Katy, TX |
I have searched for a provider for years to help with the pain. All the other doctors focus on loading me up with pills instead of focusing on the actual problem. Dr. Skaribas got me to the point where I can walk and work again. Most importantly, I can play with my kids again.

Worst doctor in the world. I would never, ever recommend him to anyone, not even my worst enemy. He hurt me and did not follow up properly. He hurt me and took no responsibility. I feel sorry for anyone that sees him.
