She spent very little time with me - maybe 2 minutes total. And she offered very little in the way of diagnosis or treatment. Told me my dizziness would probably "just go away in a few weeks." When I asked if it could be something to do with a sinus infection I'd had recently she didn't even let me finish my question before very rudely dismissing my concerns. Cold, didn't seem to care about me or the fact that I was scared because of this sudden dizziness I was experiencing. Was not reassuring. Was not helpful. Extremely poor bedside manner. I don't need coddling, but I do need a doctor that's sympathetic to my medical condition and can offer a concrete plan for treatment. I would not recommend Dr. Skovlund to anyone.
