Great doc!

Dr. Sketchler takes time to listen to me thoroughly. He is one of the best doctors that I have encountered.

Full Review Rating Breakdown
What an easy surgery this was!

I broke my hip in a bad fall many years ago and now the screws had worked loose and some of the bone was necrotic. It was time for a shiny new hip. I was dreading the surgery. The doc and his staff made everything so easy. Surgery was scheduled and recovery is going great. It's only been a few weeks so I'm not quite ready for a marathon (but I've never been ready for a marathon!) But I'm walking pretty well and working hard in PT. All is well.
