Best doctor ever!!! Delivered all 5 of my babies. Saved my life twice. There's no one better! I don't recommend her though because it's already such a long wait to get in to see her, that if she had more patients, I'd never get in. She is truly amazing.... And worth the 3 month wait to get in every yearly checkup.

Dr. Skinner, listens, explains any and all issues we might have and doesn't rush us through her office. Very Professional, as is her staff also. Love Dr. Skinner!

I am extremely pleased with Dr. Skinner and her staff. She is very attentive to my needs and concerns pertaining to my health. My wife has recently decided to switch from her doctor to Dr. Skinner as well. Her nurses, especially Lupita are the best I've had tend to my concerns. Bravo St. Alphonsus ~ Bravo ??

I have been seeing Dr Skinner for a good many years. She has always been willing to listen to all of my complaints without her hurrying me along. She has treated all of my ailments over the years and has either reduced the frequency of the ailments or has contained them. I would recommend Dr Skinner to anyone needing a great family Doctor.

I love Dr Skinner. She is so down to earth, friendly and cares about you as an individual. She listens and tries to find the best solution for your health needs. She makes sure that you are part of the decision in your health care. She has never made me feel uneasy about things we discuss. If she doesn't know she tells you and will find the answers.

She’s got to be the most caring doctor. She listens and hears what you have to say about your treatment, I feel she knows her patients because of this. The only problem with Dr. Skinner is that she’s hard to get into for an appointment I personally have waited a month to a month and a half. I just got to see her within a week because she had a cancellation.
