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 in Lexington, Ky. I am grateful to have him be my cardiologist.
