I have known Dr. Jeff Sklar, chiropractor since 2009. Dr. Sklar is a trail blazer in chiropractic medicine. As a hospital administrator, I was able to observe Dr. Sklar objectively in his role as a clinician and an educator. During my time at CTCA, Dr. Sklar was sought out around the country and overseas by chiropractic universities, state associations and holistic organizations to lecture and teach specialized chiropractic methods and nuanced approaches for cancer patients. Moreover, I had the opportunity to read many of his case reports and peer reviewed articles that were published over the years.
He has proven to be a top tier chiropractor and skillful clinician. He has an unparalleled perspective regarding cancer patients and chiropractic medicine. He understands the havoc cancer has on the body as well as the unfortunate side effects that treatment can have. He is result oriented track record was proven as he consistently scored in the highest percentile of patient and peer to peer satisfaction surveys.
During his tenure, he helped over hundreds of patients and their care givers through many difficult parts of their cancer journey. One would be hard pressed to find someone as passionate about quality of life and patient centered care for cancer patients.
It is evident that he takes pride in the way he practices. He is a kindhearted and hardworking man.

I have known Dr. Sklar, for over 10 years. During his tenure at CTCA, there was never a time when he was not immediately available for a same day “evaluate and treatment” request. As a breast surgeon, I have had many patients with scar tissue pain. Over the years countless patients always came back from him signing his praises. I would not trust just any chiropractor with my cancer patients.
Jeff is a hardworking and committed clinician. His patient centered approach and focus on “quality of life” for his patients has shown to be a driving force in his success. That is demonstrated by his top scores patient and peer satisfaction surveys. He is a team player and is motivated by good outcomes for patients.
Finally, Dr. Sklar is warm and friendly man. I recommend him to any facility or organization that needs a skilled dedicated chiropractor and healer.

Chiropractic care has been of benefit for my patient’s quality of life by improving their pain, mobility and functional capacity. These are measurable, and in oncology can often positively impact other factors such as overall survival.

I frequently refer my patients who are receiving cancer targeted therapies such as chemotherapy, immunotherapy, and targeted oral therapies to Dr. Sklar for conservative management of a multitude of therapy-related side effects including peripheral neuropathy, musculoskeletal pain syndromes, nausea, constipation, headaches, insomnia, and management of stress and anxiety related to their health and other stressors. I can’t count the number of times that patients had rapid relief of many symptoms to the extent that they did not require any supportive pharmacologic interventions. In addition, Dr. Sklar’s compassionate and knowledgeable bedside manner always puts patients at ease. He is an invaluable member of the multidisciplinary oncologic care team.”

Our team has noticed very positive areas of feedback from our patients on their chiropractic experiences. Of particular note there has been significant improvement in symptoms from neuropathy of all degrees of severity. Several patients have noticed an improvement after the first treatment. The other major area has been in lessening chronic pain. Some of our patients have commented that they were so relieved to note another method to combat pain which is very effective. Keep up the terrific work!
Over the past 5 years my patients tell me Dr, Sklar improves their quality of life. Dr. Sklar is a compassionate clinician who has helped many of my cancer patient’s symptoms with relieving their musculoskeletal pain. He manages a variety of joint and back pain related to their cancer and noncancer diagnoses. He also has treated many of my patients with neuropathy from cancer related and non cancer related causes. Dr. Sklar treats all of his patients with compassion and professionalism.” He combines his chiropractor skills with an oncology background to customize his care for cancer patients wherever they are in their treatment plan.

Dr Jeffery Sklar is a magical chiropractor who has helped numerous patients of mine with head and neck cancer. I remember, in particular, of my laryngectomy patient who’s pain was only relieved by Dr Sklar’s treatment by the bedside. He has helped my patients with neck stiffness, back pain and leg issues just to name a few. I have referred staff members to Dr Sklar who benefited from his services, and I attest to being “cured” of my aches and pains after his treatments. Dr Sklar, YOU are a Star!

Dr. Sklar works wonders with cancer patients who have pain, nausea, fatigue and other consequences of advanced disease, major surgery or prolonged treatment. He helps patients to get control of their bodily symptoms, so they feel like persons again. I have never seen a patient leave his office without a smile.
