Wonderful experience

Very thoughtful and caring man. Told me I would be without pain after surgery and he was correct. Had lower lumbar sx and the next day was walking without any pain. Pain free...is awesome.

I have known Dr Skidmore for 20 plus years. He has treated my husband and myself. We really have a lot of faith in his diagnoses on us, and we like the fact he is not knife happy . He is willing to listen to you and make sure he is making the right decisions for your treatment. I have referred his name to a lot of my friends in the past. They too have been very pleased with his treatment. He has performed neck surgery and 2 back surgeries on me. I like him , and his staff. I will continue to see him for future problems.

I had lumbar fusion at L4/5 about 6 ago with spinal stenosis. The surgery was successful. Dr Skidmore does care about his patients. He will tell you truth to the best of his ability. Every patient is different and every outcome can be different. One thing I like, is that he does not push patients to have surgery. He lets them make their own decisions. Unfortunately, I now have stenosis again in another area of my spine. He will be my only choice in a surgeon/doctor. His PA was knowledge and just caring as Dr. Skidmore was to my concerns. Yes the wait is long, but worth it. Just goes to show how good a doctor he is.. A lot of people want to see him. Otherwise the office would be empty. Think about it............
