She was very informative about the surgery that I am interested in.
Dr Skinner is great!!$
I really enjoyed my video chat with her. She listened to what I had to say and answered my questions in a manner I was able to comprehend. She asked about my feelings, which reassured me that she cared about my mental health as well as my physical health. She was very thorough in discussing all available options I have for surgery and what each entailed, along with what to expect before, after and in recovery at home after the surgery. We talked for almost an hour and she even answered questions my daughter had, as she was on the call with me to take notes. I am very happy with her becoming my doctor. I feel very reassured she has my best interests in mind.
