My wife was feeling awful for a while and went in to see Dr. Skinner. The staff was pleasant while we were there and they sent her to get lab work done at an offsite Lab (due to insurance reasons). We NEVER heard back from the doctor or his staff after this. We contacted them several times via phone and in person and were always told the lab results were not ready. We finally contact the Lab ourselves and had them send us the results. The Lab verified the results were sent to the Doctor's office 2 days after they received the blood. Luckily my wife went to see another doctor about a week after that, because she had an infection that required 2 rounds of antibiotics to take care of. We still have not heard form Dr. Skinner. They clearly don't care about the health of their patients. I guarantee you they got their co-pay and as much money from the insurance as they could. This is what happens when they value money over patient care.

He was very nice. But I have called at least 6 times in the last week about my prescription, which hasn’t been filled yet, and NO ONE will pick up the phone or call me back.

Office staff is not friendly. It is ok to be thorough and businesslike and busy, but the lady I spoke with seems as though answering questions is a bother.. As a mother of a kid in college 7 hours away, it would be nice to have a friendly voice on the other side of the phone..
