Dr. Skiba was very personable and courteous and gave me good advice on how to improve my condition.

Reviewed on July 28, 2019 7:00 PM

He was over 30 minutes late, had no real thoughts on what could be causing my pain and did not seem to care that he had no ideas. He told me to come back 'in a few months', but when I asked if I needed to make another appointment he said 'no'. Then, when I read the notes on the portal, it said to come back in a month. No clear communication. I will no longer waste my time or money on this provider.

Dr. Skiba's inter performed exam. He spent a total of 10-15 minutes with me. I would have liked Dr. Skiba to have performed the exam on my knee & shoulders. I also had to call for my x-ray read. Dr. Skiba stated someone would call within 24-48 hrs. with a read from my x-ray. It would also be nice to have a hard copy of the visit.

The Dr always has training associates within that are always changing so each appointment you have to go over your history, repeat your problem, get reevaluated. That is after discussing with the clerk that first time each apt. very repetitious and time wasting. Then the dr. comes in to see you and covers similar info.
