Great Doctor. Have been a patient for many years. I have much confidence in Dr. Sciales. He is very thorough and takes the time that you need to explain things to you. Have never been to a Dr. That can compare to him. I moved out of state and still continue to be his patient. I consider him to be one of the BEST!
