Satisfied Patient

"Dr. Skarada is one of the most caring doctors I have ever had."

"I was referred to him when I saw another doctor for my enlarged thyroid.  Dr. Skarada tried so diligently to repair my paralyzed vocal cord, and after two surgeries, it was very successful.  He gave me my voice back and my livelihood as well.  I appreciate him so much."
