What People Say About Dr. Peter Skaff, MD

Dr. Skaff is an excellent Neurologist and I highly recommend him to all. He is very personable and takes time to really listen to your concerns. When I had seizure concerns, diagnose me quickly and accurately. Prescribed medicine that I have take for five years without reoccurrence.

We found Dr Staff exceptionally caring and through during the hospitalization of our mother. He takes the time to talk with patients and family explaining things so it was easily understandable. If we ever have a need for a neurologist we would absolutely see this great MD again!
