Bountiful, UT |
Dr. Skedros was fine. We got tired of all the various bills being sent to us for almost a year. The total cost after everything was 3 times what they "estimated". It is wrong that doctors offices and health care providers in general can get away with this. They have done thousands of these same surgeries and they cannot pin down a better estimate?! I would not recommend this office to any one.

Dr. Skedros at first seems like a great doctor. He is friendly, kind, listens well. I thought he was my friend. For regular visits he was great. Then I needed an outpatient surgery and he went salesman on me. I didn't know what I did and did not need and I trusted him. Turns out he did 2x what was needed and my bill skyrocketed. I could not pay right away, and instead of helping out with a payment plan I was taken to court and forced to pay lawyer fees on top of medical bills.

Dr. Skedros was totally incompetent in repairing my nose. He was supposed to fix my deviated septum and breathing problems. When I told him something was wrong he would not listen and would tell me everything looked fine (which it was not). He fixed the bad side of my nose and ruined the good side in the process. If you are considering surgery with Skedros, I would find someone else.
