Patient Comments (1)
in Greenbrae, CA |
Dr. Sklar is quite an amazing guy; I was in the ER many years at Marin General and he just showed up out of nowhere (even though I did not have a cardiac issue) . Cardiologists are invaluable, friendly folks who are all very much like the rest of us. Excellent clinical skills and his knowledge of cardiology will astound you. Check him out, refer him to your family and friends, Lorie Bellgard NP,MPH,RN
