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!

Dr. Skubic was very attentive to my explanation of my problems with my back. He explained in detail my options and recommended the next step. I look forward to seeing results from treatment.

Very happy with experience with Dr Skubic. I trust his judgment regarding my spine condition. I really appreciate that he is willing to explore therapy and medication management rather than instantly recommending surgery. Scheduling could use much improvement! When I called and said I was in acute pain, the young lady answering the phone was obviously only interested in plugging me into a blank space in the schedule, 12 days from now! When I explained that I couldn't wait that long, she did not try to connect me with a nurse or asst, rather kept insisting that that was an opening - oblivious to my statement.
