What People Say About Dr. Paul Skudder, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

This doctor feels he has the knowledge to DENY my bilateral mastectomy based on the MRI. The MRI IS CLEAR WITH IN BOTH but I choose to only have a biopsy on one breast due to trying to proceed with the surgery and not putting it off. After reviewing his credentials I don’t feel he is qualified to make that call. I don’t see how a vascular or cardiovascular person has the ability to make the call on a breast cancer diagnosis! I sure as hell wouldn’t call a GI doctor for a broken bone!!

Dr. Skudder is a very kind and caring doctor who took excellent care of me. I was in so much pain when I first saw him. He had to do a vascular bypass on my leg. Thanks to him I do not have the pain anymore. He has a happy personality that makes you feel like he is your friend as well as your doctor.
