Out of Town Patients

Patients come to the Sklar Center to solve their health problems from across the United States and other parts of the world. Whether you live outside the Los Angeles area or in another state, the Sklar Center will accommodate you with follow-up care in your home location.

Where possible your initial medical consultation will be done at the Sklar Center with Dr. Sklar. Follow-up appointments can then be arranged by phone or Skype or in the office. If you are unable to come to the Sklar Center in person for an initial appointment special arrangements can be made to accommodate you. Contact our Patient Care Coordinator at (562) 596-5196 to discuss the right type of arrangement for you.

What to bring to your appointment

Prior to your appointment please send the following forms and medical information to the Sklar Center:

Diagnostic Assessment

New Patient History Form

Copies of any recent test results.

Bring the supplements or medications you are currently taking to your initial appointment.

Dr. Sklar also recommends involving your partner in the process where possible. If dietary or other lifestyle changes are required to benefit your health it is often helpful to involve other family members in the process.

Travel

The Sklar Center is conveniently located just minutes from the Long Beach Municipal Airport. We recommend the use of this airport for patients flying in. It is a small airport with minimal time spent boarding or collecting baggage so you have more time to spend at the Sklar Center or relaxing in your hotel.
