Dr Scala became my primary physician when a change in my medical insurance necessitated me to find a new physician. This ended up to be my good fortune for I found his care superb in every way: compassionate, knowledgable, and accessible. I would not hesitate to suggest someone choose to go to him for any health concern. His network of known specialists aids in the full care of options one often needs. Lastly his office staff are wonderful to work with, patient, kind, and helpful.

Highest Recommendation for Dr John Scala – Jul 17, 2020
Dr. Scala is an outstanding internal medicine doctor! He takes his time to listen to your concerns and never rushes you out the door. When you’re in his office he gives you 100% of his undivided attention. All health issues are taken seriously and he is very knowledgeable in the latest medical advances. He truly cares about what’s best for his patients before the money. I highly recommend Dr. Scala, you won’t be disappointed!

I have never experienced a doctor who was less interested in my well being. He was disconnected, condescending, and completely unwilling to address my issues. I have since found another doctor who was not only caring but quick and incredibly effective in address my heath concern.

Never feel rushed during visits. Dr. Scala seems to be on top of latest trends in medical care and actually listens to you. He has helped me reduce and in some cases eliminate some of my medications.

William MacDonald in Parker – Oct 23, 2017
I have seen Dr. Scala on several occasions when my assigned Primary Care Physician was not available. I needed to see someone this past Monday, and it was Dr. Skala who volunteered to stay late to work me in. I was experiencing serious side effects from recent surgery. He made a few changes in my medication that got me through immediate danger and on the right track. He was very thorough in answering my questions, as well as my husband's, and showed a genuine interest in my getting well.

As a collegiate and professional football player, I've had my share of visits with various physicians. Hands down, John Scala, MD is the most thorough, knowledgeable, and caring doctor I have ever met! His calm demeanor immediately put me at ease. He didn't rush through the exam...he answered all my questions, and asked if I had any further concerns. In today's healthcare system where the bottom line (seemingly) rules and patients feel like just a number, Dr. Scala is a rare find!

I have been a patient of Dr. Scala for many years and throughout that time he and his staff have been among the most professional, knowledgeable and personable people I have ever met. They are always very courteous, and of all the visits I have had I do not think I have waited more than 5 minutes from my arrival to be seen despite being 15 minutes early to the appt. It is rare that people in the medical field are so respectful of their patient's time. He has my highest recommendation.

Doctor Scala has been our family physician for over 5 years. In addition to being the most caring and intelligent family physician we have ever had, my husband, who would rarely see our previous doctors, says he likes Dr Scala so much, that he no longer balks at going to the doctor. In addition, his front office staff is never short...no matter how long their day. And there is no need to go to urgent care during the week because they have a system which enables them to schedule you.

Dr. Scala is a great resource and is quite knowledgeable. For example, he diagnosed what was causing my elevated potassium level, which was preventing me from being accepted into a clinical trial. The culprit was magnesium. Who would have thought that magnesium would affect my potassium level, but Dr. Scala did! I am a fan!
