Dr Scurria is probably the best doctor I've ever had. She's up to date, smart and she listens. I recommend Dr Scurria to anyone looking for a physician who cares. I changed physicians last year and I've been very happy with my decision. I had a health challenge a few months after becoming her patient. She was on top of it, communicative, supportive and got me back on track… See more
I was involved in a 12-car pileup on Interstate 10,Thanksgiving weekend. Shaken and standing on the side of a bridge over the Colorado River, not knowing what to do next, I called Dr. Scurria's voice mail and she called me right back. I didn't know if I was hurt or should go to a hospital. Dr. Scurria advised me to go to the emergency department as soon as I could.
It sounds… See more
Ive never felt better about my relationship with my doctor. Dr. Scurria knows exactly who I am, understands my issues and spends all the time I need with me. She and her staff are wonderful. Ive got my husband, children and mother going to Dr. Scurria now. Ive never recommended a family members to one of my doctors before.
Ive been with Dr. Scurria for a number of years. When she elected to join MDVIP, it was a no-brainer for me to stay with the best. Four years ago, I moved to a small city 125 miles away and have continued health care with Dr. Scurria. It is worth the 2 hour drive for me to have the best health care available. The services she offers through MDVIP gives me confidence that she is available for… See more
Dr. Sandra SCURRIA is that rare breed of REAL Doctors who care. Dr. Scurria has cared for us for over 20 years. She is available, medically thorough and sweet. She always makes us comfortable and she explains and takes TIME to talk about our health concerns. We liken her to the old Country Doctor, but in a great metropolitan area where all the best referrals are located. We thank God for our… See more
