    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.

    Front desk employees were very helpful and friendly on both floors. Lab tech was very polite and efficient. My wait was very short. Doctor's explanation of ultrasound was easy to understand. The doctor took time to listen to my concerns.

    Our first visit to Dr Skibba. He listened. He actually listened! He was not rushed. He actually came in the exam room 10 min before our appt. time. How rare is that. Although my husband was the patient, he talked to me (the wife) also and included me in the information he provided. That shows respect and we were both grateful for that. Dr Skibba was friendly, easy to talk with, answered questions, and gave us his opinions about the condition. Parking is easy, staff very friendly, coffee provided (great for early morning appointments). We will see him again but certainly will recommend him to others. Thank you. D and C Wells

    I really enjoyed my experiences with Dr Skibba. At this point both my husband and I have come to see him. We used to live in Los Angeles and received our care at UCLA for many years, and I can honestly say that our vascular care by Dr Skibba and his team was superior in every way: 1. Dr Skibba of course! Pleasant, speaks in a way that someone with no medical knowledge can understand, and took the time to answer all of my questions. 2. Parking. Super easy to get in and out of Dr Skibba’s office on Papermill Drive. 3. Building. Modern and nice. Everything was very professional. 4. Fewer trips. Dr Skibba’s office has a built-in vascular ultrasound department, such that I was often able to have my ultrasound performed the same day that I saw him. 5. Staff. Both the front desk personnel as well as Dr Skibba’s team were kind and approachable. Would highly recommend this vascular surgeon!

    I had surgery just recently with Dr. Skibba. He was very knowledgeable and was very skilled in his profession. He is very nice and friendly. He answered all my questions and put me at ease as soon as he walked in. I'm sure I will continue to use him in the future as my physician and will recommend him to others.

    Great experience, he listened to concerns, gave a very complete exam and reviewed previous scans on file. He took a great deal of time answering questions and explaining what needed to be done. He is very knowledgeable and I am very confident in his diagnoses. I am grateful for his time and attention given to help resolve this latest heath issue.
