Wonderful man . Very kind , great bedside manner always remembers his patients ! Top notch medically in getting pain relief for my back through RFA.
Grove City, OH |
This whole practice is notoriously late in seeing patients! I have been in there five times (for 2 different doctors) and each time I have waited over an hour and a half to see the doctor. Some of my appointments have even been early morning and still the wait was 1 1/2 to 2 hours. I have commented to staff about it and they have agreed and told me that it doesn't matter when I schedule---I will have a long wait. They have no respect for a patient's time.

I want a doctor to be kind and considerate of how you feel. Not only did Dr. Skeels not listen to me, but he completely ignored my symptoms. He made me feel like I was making my symptoms up. Why would anyone want back pain? The office staff and therapy office is great, but I can't believe he's supposed to be someone who helps others and he's telling me my pain isn't real. I am seeking another professional who cares about his/her patients and understands people as a whole!
