Patient Comments (1)
Diagnosed with a rare vascular defect, I was referred to Dr. Skelly. After having been bounced around from doctor to doctor with insurmountable frustration and no progress, Dr. Skelly was the first specialist to appreciate the struggle this had become. Realizing surgery was needed, he was brutally honest about what an undertaking this would be and made sure I was aware of everything I could expect. The compassion he showed me throughout, as well as the attention in aftercare, was exceptional.
