Susan Sklar, MD
Susan Sklar, MD, opened the Sklar Center for Restorative Health in response to the unmet medical needs of men and women in the Long Beach, California, area. When conventional medicine did not address her own and many of her patients’ concerns, she turned to functional medicine and found the answer. As a practitioner of functional medicine, Dr. Sklar takes a holistic approach to the body and the way all its systems work together.
Dr. Sklar is a Harvard-trained gynecologist who spent more than 20 years as a practicing OB/GYN. She started her medical training at the Boston University School of Medicine and served an internship at Boston City Hospital. She completed her obstetrics and gynecology residency at Harvard’s Beth Israel Hospital.
Using the Sklar Center Protocols she designed, she solved her own medical problems. Dr. Sklar’s discovery and her personal experience with functional and anti-aging medicine drive her to share this new approach with her community. The Sklar Center for Restorative Health is a place where people can feel great again and maintain optimal health, and she invites you to find out what a difference the Sklar Center Protocols can make in your life.
Dr. Sklar is licensed in New York and Florida as well as California.
“The Sklar Center for Restorative Medicine is a place like none other. Dr. Susan Sklar is the most compassionate and knowledgeable physician I have ever met. I say this as a physician who is her patient as well. I live in Florida while she is in California however I receive better care for my condition, Burning Mouth Syndrome, than I have received from any physician in my own city. I think anyone would be hard pressed to find another physician who knows as much about Burning Mouth Syndrome as she does. I would highly recommend anyone who has Burning Mouth Syndrome or the myriad of symptoms that come with menopause to see her. Her staff is kind, compassionate and always helpful.” K.T.

Julie was 34 years old at the time I began treating her. Feeling like her biological clock was ticking, she tried to conceive but experienced two miscarriages in the previous year. She was considering artificial insemination or in vitro fertilization. In addition to the typical screening blood work, I tested her hormone levels and looked for inflammatory diseases. From these panels, it was apparent the patient had an inflammatory disorder, low thyroid hormone levels, as well as less than ideal iron levels.
After 3 months of treatment for these issues, she returned and reported improvements in energy and overall health. By the time of her next follow up visit, she called the office to let us know she was pregnant. I cared for her every 2-3 months until her beautiful baby boy was born.”
