Dr.Sklar is the best Dr. on the block!

I am 26 and had bunions of a 75 year old and just recently got them done and they look amazing. I couldn’t be anymore happier with how my feet look! All the staff are amazing especially Jordan and Sam :) If you’re not getting treated by Dr. Sklar you’re doing it wrong!!
