Dr. Skaff is the absolute best pediatrician in South Florida. There is no one else I trust with my daughter’s heath more than Dr. Skaff. I have never waited more than 15-20 minutes in his office and his staff is fantastic. From the first time I called I had a feeling it was going to be a great experience and upon meeting him I was right. On our first visit he took an incredible amount of time to get to know my wife and I. He asked detailed questions about her pregnancy and the delivery. He asked

Everything is OK until your child has a weight issue. He start panicking and send you all kind of test without making sense even for himself. Very rude at times, unprofessional. He ask the same questions every time that we go there, please make notes and read the patient info before get into the room. Switching to another doctor that can actually give me his time.
