Dr. Skaria is one of the most knowledgeable, trustworthy and compassionate doctors I have ever known. He provides excellent care, let alone time and attention many doctors don't often provide in order to help patients and family clearly understand their condition and ask questions.

Dr. Skaria is a competent and trustworthy physician. I never have to worry if I'm receiving appropriate care because he takes the time to answer my questions, explains the plan of care, and always listens to my concerns. I would not only recommend Dr. Skaria to any of my friends or family, but I would insist they receive care in his practice.
