Reviews from our happy patients
Healthy Patients... Healthy Lifestyles!
Dr. Skinner is a great doctor, smart, thoughtful and always quick to respond to his patients with thorough, detailed answers. His office is staffed by genuine people who provide excellent service.”
I’ve received remarkable care in the 30 years I’ve been a patient with Dr. Skinner, and he was very helpful when my wife had cancer. He’s a specialist acting as a general practitioner; that’s hard to find! I don’t know of any other doctor who’s as concerned about his patients’ health and well-being. He gets to the source of the problem, and I’ve been glad to refer many people to him over the years.
My husband and I are both longtime patients, going back 20 years with Dr. Skinner. He has an old-fashioned practice, caring heart, knows his patients, truly cares about them and gives us all the information we need to stay healthy.
