Dr. Skerrett was my husband's pulmonologist for 10 years. He was the finest physician we worked with during David's many illnesses. His patient advocacy and skill are only surpassed by his kindness. We were indeed fortunate to have known Dr. Skerrett.

Truly excellent knowledge and attention to my 90-year old dad, who can be a little difficult and resistant to advice let alone medication. I have visited and worked with a lot of doctors, and Dr. Skerrett has the best patient bedside manner and ability to work with this kind of patient that I have ever seen. (Medical students/residents should observe him.) Also super-responsive and detailed in response to our many questions.
