We were seen almost immediately. Medical staff were very pleasant and helpful. Dr Skibba was prompt, pleasant, professional, patient and gave my diagnostic information in a way that was thorough and, also, easy to understand. Based on this initial appointment, I would highly recommend Dr. Skibba.

Good bedside manor and knowledgeable but don't plan on being seen on time or within the hour of your appointment. Takes time once you see the doctor but seems to overbook and leaves you waiting in the waiting room for hours. My time is valuable also.

Dr. Ivy did surgery on my elbow after another orthopedic Dr. had given me 7 cortisone shots in it. The surgery was 100% successful. About 10 years later Dr. Ivy removed a small tumor like growth on an index finger. Again the surgery was 100% successful. He’s tops in his field of medicine.

My wife was seen by Dr. Brown. As a member of the medical community, I could not agree with his diagnosis at all. Considering her findings, I am very uncertain of the diagnosis. She was also told to have a hearing test despite not being seen for this or having any history of hearing loss.
