About Sklar Center for Restorative Medicine

Susan Sklar, MD, established the Sklar Center for Restorative Medicine in 2007 to respond to the need for functional medicine in the Long Beach, California, community. She started to find conventional medicine lacking in certain areas and soon discovered the holistic approach of functional medicine, which focuses on the way the body’s systems are interconnected.

The staff at the Center focus on finding and treating the underlying cause of a disease, instead of just treating the symptoms. They also emphasize preventive medicine rather than treating a disease after it has already presented. This alternative approach merges ancient wisdom and leading-edge medicine to restore optimal health.

Bioidentical hormone replacement is part of their approach to long-term health, as hormones affect nearly every system in the body. Treatments that target inflammation, blood sugar regulation, and cholesterol also lower the risk for chronic disease.

Getting seen at the Sklar Center is different than visiting a conventional doctor. The Sklar Center team evaluates you as a whole person, rather than as the sum of separate (cardiovascular, endocrine, respiratory, etc.) systems.

We incorporate the best of conventional medicine with alternative treatment using herbs, hormones and supplements, supported by lifestyle coaching and counseling.

Diseases develop gradually, and the Sklar Center for Restorative Medicine uses a modern approach combined with ancient wisdom to intervene and restore health. The Center provides programs for:

  • Weight loss
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Hormone health
  • Thyroid health
  • Heart health
  • Gastrointestinal health

They also treat autoimmune disorders, memory decline, and a variety of other conditions. If you need treatment for any of these health problems, call the office or book your first appointment online today!
