Madison Heights, MI |
Quite impersonal, doesn't review chart ahead of time. I feel like every appointment is exactly the same. He knows his stuff, just doesn't seem like he wants to be there. I don't usually have a long wait time, but I always schedule one of the first appts of the day.

I have a very rare form of arthritis, and after seeing multiple doctors who could not give me a diagnosis, Dr. Skender had my condition diagnosed within about 10 minutes. He's good, he knows his stuff, and he's very helpful in terms of helping me to function as fully as possible with my condition....more

After 4 years, I am concerned that Dr. Skender does not pay critical attention to my health care. He is disinterested, impatient, and since he is always late he is always in a hurry to get me through the door. I asked him to explain something to me one time and his response was "It's complicated"....more

I have seen him for over ten years and he still doesn't know what medications I take prescribed by him. He always runs late for your appointment, spends about two minutes in the room and then leaves. He will ask three or four questions and you answer them only to have to repeat the answers...more
