We have had our son in Dr. Scardina’s car for 12 years. We have always found Dr. Scardina’s care to be excellent. He always responds to questions sent through MyChart or over the phone. He listens to us, answers questions and over 12 years we have found his diagnoses to be spot on, his advise very wise and his counsel to be very valuable.

Dr. Scardina is such a great psychiatrist who patiently listens and thoroughly set up a specific plan to help his patients. He always calls back if you need him. We are so grateful for all that he gave my daughter through the years.

We have seen Dr. Scardina for a great many years. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of medications and interactions and actively teaches parent and patient about their condition, treatment and how it affects the body. I have never doubted his level of concern for my children or his dedication to finding the perfect cocktail of meds to keep them safe. I literally trust him with my children’s lives.
