Dr. Sklar is one of those rare doctors that you can actually talk to in person and on the phone if you have questions. I needed cataract surgery, he made it happen in the time period I needed. Very easy to talk to, helpful, doesn't rush you ... needless to say I am very happy and recommend him highly. Frank A
