Dr. Sklash's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Sklash "My practice is focused on delivering excellent cardiovascular care in a personalized and compassionate manner. I focus heavily on prevention and risk factor modification to prevent heart disease before it starts. I use various imaging technologies including cardiac CT scanning, ultrasound, and nuclear scans to better assess my patients' cardiac risks. My primary goal is to get to know each and every patient well and provide them with not just a cardiologist, but a friend and adviser. I also strive to be very efficient and my wait time in the office rarely exceeds 5-10 minutes. My interests outside of medicine include reading, sports (golf, tennis, basketball) and spending time with my wife and daughter. "
