Accepting Patients:

"I believe the practice of medicine is a partnership between the patient and the physician. I get to know my patients’ health, lifestyle, family and work habits to make health recommendations that are right for them. I listen to my patients and together we develop goals and treatment plans that suit their lifestyle and meet their medical needs."


Dr. Skariah’s medical interests are varied and include population health, cancer prevention, medical school curriculum and disease prevention.  Above all, he is interested in his patients.  He joined OHSU Family Medicine at Scappoose in 2012 after some time in private practice because he was looking for rural practice and academic pursuits.  His patients and the Scappoose staff make it a joy for him to come to work.

Dr. Skariah is originally from Garland, Texas.  He is married with a daughter. He can sing all the songs from Disney’s “Frozen” (in Spanish).
