Patient Comments (2)

Dr Skinner has been an exceptional cardiologist who has helped me since being diagnosed with cardiomyopathy. I would recommend him to anyone who needs a cardiac physician for their management of any heart problems. I drive past many hospitals to be in Dr. Skinner's care at Central Baptist Hospital...more
