About me

Dr. Joe M. Skariah is a family medicine doctor. He provides comprehensive primary care, including obstetric and pediatric care. He also provides manual medicine as a treatment and believes in holistic care. 

In search of a clinic that would allow him to pursue his interests in rural medicine and academics, he joined OHSU Family Medicine at Scappoose in 2012. His patients and the staff make it a joy for him to come to work. Dr. Skariah is also director of the Portland Family Medicine residency program at OHSU.

Dr. Skariah is originally from Garland, Texas. He is married with two children and a canine companion, Maggie. He can sing all the songs from Disney’s “Frozen” in Spanish.

Before scheduling your appointment, we recommend you contact your insurance company to verify that the OHSU Health location or provider you plan to visit is included in your network. Your insurance company will also be able to inform you of any copayments, co–insurance, or deductibles that will be your responsibility. If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with OHSU providers, your out of pocket liability may be higher. Visit the billing and insurance section of our site for more information.
