Meet Our Team
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.
Nicole Daddona, ND
Dr. Nicole Daddona, who likes to be called “Dr. Nicole,” is passionate about natural healing. She is a licensed Naturopathic Doctor which means that she believes in the body’s innate ability to heal itself. Her three main goals are to treat people not symptoms, to empower patients through understanding and education, and to help individuals obtain optimal health. She partners with her patients to transform their health with diet, lifestyle and holistic treatments.
She desires to make the world a better place, one person at a time. She has been described as a medical detective. She explores all the disparate pieces and weaves them together to determine the root causes of illness. Once the causes are found she focuses on restoring healthy physiology through a functional medicine perspective.
She was drawn to naturopathic medicine in a quest to restore her own health. She had suffered for years with digestive issues that no one was able to solve. It was through her training in medical school that she learned how to heal herself. She is now healthier in her 40’s than she was in her 20’s.
Dr. Nicole treats common medical conditions such as allergies, diabetes, heart disease and arthritis. She has a special focus on gastrointestinal issues including small bowel intestinal overgrowth, inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel disease and bothersome symptoms such as gas, bloating, and constipation. She has expertise in working with complex autoimmune diseases such as Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, rheumatoid arthritis, and multiple sclerosis. She is licensed in California. She graduated from the National College of Naturopathic Medicine in 2007. She maintained a busy private practice in Portland for 5 years before moving to Southern Oregon and joining an interdisciplinary clinic. She is excited to join Sklar Center for Restorative Medicine and be part of a truly holistic approach to health and wellness.
Dr. Danielle Langston, ND
Dr. Danielle Langston is a licensed Naturopathic Doctor who earned her degree with honors from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe, Arizona. She then completed her general medicine residency in Santa Barbara, California. Her clinical focus is on general medicine, dermatology, fertility, and hormone balance. Dr. Langston has extensive training in Nature Cure modalities and natural aesthetics including Microneedling and Botox.
Dr. Langston believes in order to help her patients reach their health goals, first, they must identify and treat the root cause of the patients’ concerns. Once this foundation of health is established Dr. Langston utilizes the therapeutic process and naturopathic principles to restore the body’s structural integrity and support the healing process. She is passionate about teaching her patients how to care for themselves better, identifying obstacles they may have to overcome, and creating individualized treatments in order to prevent the onset of acute and chronic illnesses.
Prior to earning her medical degree Dr. Langston attended the University of Oregon, where she received her BS in Human Physiology. Outside of practicing medicine, Dr. Langston enjoys running with her dog, trying new foods, hiking, and driving 4×4 trails.
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.”
