Doctor recommends unneeded treatment and charges you without telling you. Over priced treatment and extremely poor nursing assistant knowledge. Lied to me regarding scar treatment, told AFTER procedure was done that carboxy does. It work for scars.

After I was told by Dr. Skellchock that I had a precancerous growth on me and needed to be taken off, I made the appointment. I received a voicemail cancelling my appointment for no reason. I called repeatedly up to three business days, left voice mails (asking Dr. Skellchock to call me). I even drove to her office. Her office was completely shut down. I am unable to retain my health records. VERY SHADY!!!!!!!!!! I would not recommend Dr. Skellchock to anyone, unless you want anxiety and stres
