The Sklar Center for Restorative Medicine was started to meet the needs of people who are looking for a natural approach to health care. At the Sklar Center, we help our patients achieve health by finding and treating the underlying causes of disease.
Restorative Medicine is a new way of being healthy. It is a scientifically based field of medicine which uses cutting edge technology as well as ancient wisdom to restore your body to optimum health.
While traditional medicine waits for diseases to occur, Restorative Medicine prevents disease. Where traditional medicine is a band-aid approach to health, Restorative Medicine fixes the root cause of disease for a permanent solution. At the Sklar Center we see ourselves as detectives in search of the real causes of your illness.
More Than Hormones
At the Sklar Center we restore healthy, youthful function with bioidentical hormones, but we do so much more. The Sklar Center Adrenal Recovery Program looks at the ways stress affects our healthy functioning and heals the root cause.
The Sklar Center Brain Health Program evaluates the important chemical communicators of the brain (called neurotransmitters) and works with natural treatment supported by hormone restoration to achieve healthy brain function for relief of depression and anxiety, resolution of insomnia, or help in getting off prescription medications.
The Sklar Center Heart Health Program looks at the reason behind heart attacks and strokes—inflammation. It is not enough to correct cholesterol levels. The currently used cholesterol testing is old technology.
At the Sklar Center, we use advanced cholesterol testing to tell if you are likely to develop plaque in your blood vessels, regardless of your cholesterol level.
Your Best Advocate
You have an advocate and partner in health care at the Sklar Center. Dr. Sklar looks at your overall health, reviews recommendations from other health providers, and helps to refer you to the best doctors and health care providers for your needs.
The beginning appointments are dedicated to learning about your medical history and your goals for your health. They allow for an educational process for both patient and doctor.
This is a unique experience for new patients and begins the partnership between doctor and patient—a partnership dedicated to your optimal wellbeing.

The Sklar Center is Different from Your Regular Doctor
At the Sklar Center we look at the whole person, rather than dividing the body into separate systems. Traditional medical practice divides you into mind and body.
Then your body is divided into cardiac, nervous, skin, endocrine, reproductive, and gastrointestinal systems. All of these systems including your mind are connected. By taking an integrated view the Sklar Center is better able to diagnose and cure many seemingly incurable problems.
Patients ask, “Why doesn’t my doctor know about this?” The answer is that it takes a complete turnaround for Western trained doctors to accept this new view of medicine. Most doctors are too ingrained in their way of thinking to open up to a different perspective.
Dr. Sklar knows. She’s worked in both types of medical practice. Dr. Sklar says, “I’ve been a doctor for 35 years and this is the most rewarding part of my entire professional life. I have done more good in more ways than I ever thought possible.”
