Patient Comments (5)
in Brookline, MA |
My husband was in an emergency and I was very happy to find Dr. Skoff. His credentials (BIDMC for years, instructor at Harvard Medical School,MD and residency at Yale Medical School) impressed me very much. He is in private practice close by but we would have gone to him elsewhere. We were glad to avoid the bureaucracy and stress of a hospital. Dr. Skoff was calm and unhurried, explained clearly, listened intently. His treatment took my husband's difficult medical history seriously.
in Braintree, MA |
I had both Carpal Tunnel release operations and a ganglion cyst removal done by Dr. Hillel Skoff, over a 3 month span. After each surgery I was back to work with in 2 days. Dr. Skoff thoroughly explains what he is going to do, how you will feel and the recuperation time needed. He answers all questions and concerns. Highly competent skilled surgeon. It is now 5 months later and I can barely see the scar on either hand, the incision was made on a crease line, on the inside of my wrists.
in Rockport, MA |
He has treated me for tennis elbow and a bulging disc (c5, c6) with nerve root compression. Very knowledgeable and got to diagnosis quickly. He explains the issues clearly and his treatment plans, even if there may be some uncertainties always help me know what to expect. He has cured me if a lot of pain and I'm grateful.
Brookline, MA |
Doctor's staff is rude, abrupt. Not patient friendly office at all. Seemed more interested in collecting their fees than treating patients.
in Hanson, MA |
He does good work, but he doesn't really know how to explain things the way a person can understand that doesn't work in the medical world. He thinks he is way better then his clients, that is just the way he talks to you. I don't know if I would recommend him to anyone... If something doesn't heal as quick as he would like, he will blame the problem on something else but not himself.
