Specialties

Dr. Deborah S Skelton has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

She is much more than just a doctor!

I truly believe Dr. Skelton saved my husbands life. He has gone they two colon surgeries. She has stayed with us in the room because he was so sick. She sat on the bathroom floor with me rubbing his back and trying to comfort him while he was throwing up. She treats you like family. We feel like we grew up with her. She spends as much time with you explaining your case. Not many doctors do that any more. My family is so thankful that she happened to be on call when the ambulance arrived with John. She didn't just take care of him; she took care of my children and I. We have recommended Dr. Skelton to everyone that we hear has a gastric problem. She is also my doctor now.

Thank you Dr. Skelton

Dr. Skelton has been a huge help. I could not recommend a better GI doctor. She went out of her way to help me when I thought there was no other options.

Could not diagnose problem

I saw her in the office one time with abdominal pain and she ordered a CT scan. Her office called me with the results of the scan which were normal, and they referred me back to my primary care physician. She did not try to find the root cause of the problem which still exists.
