Patient Comments (2)
in North Hollywood |
Dr. Skipper is a world class addiction leader and an inspiration to the professionals who seek his help, especially the doctors. The program is not perfect but the staff are dedicated and caring. Some residents may have complaints but that's the nature of being semi-confined in a residential treatment program. It works if you work it!
in Indianapolis, IN |
Did not deal honestly with me. Unnecessarily prolonged my stay running into unacceptable cost overruns. Said he would never give up on me then would not return my calls. Staff communications were also curtailed in all likelihood by his instruction.Offered to testify on my behalf without being asked regarding previous substance monitoring irregularities then would not return calls. Fabricated conversations between himself and my personal physician in attempts to manipulate.
