My first visit with Dr Skelton was last week . I was feeling nervous as i had seen my previous doctorfor 20 years . After Dr Skelton came into the exam room and we talked awhile i began to feel at ease . He interviewed me regarding my health and the issues that i have . I had brought some health records with me and we looked at them together . He examined. me and further talked about care in the future , testing and my return vist . The entire experience , office staff and Dr was good.

My husband and I are both new patients of Dr. Skelton due to a recent move to this area. Our initial appointments were on time, efficient and conducted in a very professional yet pleasant manner. My husband needed some new blood work and an ultrasound and appointments for those were made for us very quickly. We were very happy with all the staff we met as well as with Dr. Skelton.

I was a patient at Garden Park from October 17-30th. I had two surgeries during my stay. Upon release Dr. Skeleton was recommended to me. After my first appointment I was very happy we chose him as my primary care doctor. He was very concerned about my health and the condition of my diabetes. I will be recommending Garden Park and also Dr. Skeleton to others that I know.
