Dr Sclar attended me at Scripps Hospital, after I received emergency treatment for a heart attack. He did an excellent job explaining what happened and what his plans were for the next morning's procedures, which resulted in four stints beinginstalled. Discharge instructions were clear and concise. The follow up office visit and exam was caring and complete. Having a heart attack is a scary event but I felt my fears were put into perspective and I am in good hands.

The thing I probably liked the most about this appointment is they had a tablet device in which all medical history was completed and you could even pay on it. Hello 21st century!!... Otherwise the staff & Dr Scalr was also professional and pleasant.

I wasn't content with his beside manner. He made me feel like he didn't care about my concerns. He was borderline rude. I won't schedule another appoinment with him if I can help it.
