Dr. Skyhar has been my physician ever since he repaired my totally torn left ACL in 1990. I've referred many to him over the years. He's got a VERY good bedside manner and really cares about his patients. He's VERY knowledgeable and respected in his field. Over the years I have trusted Dr. Skyhar with any orthro problem I was having.
