Dr Skubic is very easy to talk to. He spared no time finding out what was bothering me. He did 2 surgeries on my my back. Excellent surgeon now after living in pain for years I feel like a new man. I would recommend him to everyone.

My appointment went extremely well. I was greeted professionally, my wait for the doctor was minimal. Dr got right down to business and was extremely informative. He gave me options as to what could be done based on my X-rays. I felt he understood everything and made me feel like he was truly concerned with my health. Definitely will use him again.

There is no better spine surgeon than Dr. Skubic, in my opinion. Through the past couple decades he has helped me with the wear and tear working as a medical professional has caused. He is conservative in his recommendations and would never perform a surgery unless indicated.

Dr. Skubic has been my dr for a few years now. He has performed 2 of my back surgeries so I have the utmost trust in him & his skills as a surgeon. When I see him in office I never feel rushed. And when I have test/X-ray results Dr. Skubic goes over the information in detail. Dr. Skubic is an great dr & I wouldn’t want to trust my back to anyone else.

Dr. Skubic took precautions with me before he made a determination. It seems he is lookin for my best interest so that I can continue my work instead of putting me in a worse position than I'm in. He evaluated everything I said and have been feeling.

Dr Skubic has done 4 surgeries 1 on my neck and 3 on my back. Dr Skibic is personable and professional. I’m facing a possible 5th surgery. Dr Skubic isn’t quick to do surgery and will try other methods to resolve issues. I wouldn’t choose any other Surgeon. His staff is awesome too. Thanks Doc; you’re the best!
