When we first saw the doctor we thought he was great very thorough after that it went down hill! First off the office manager clearly has too much on her plate she literally tells you she’ll call you back every time and never calls back randomly cancels our appointment one that I’ve been trying to get what seemed like a lifetime! Then I call to reschedule and they tell us to find a new pediatrician for no reason! I literally waited weeks for an appointment and my child is now overdue for not only two well visits but his shots as well! So rude!

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.
