Dr. Roland L Skinner III has the following 3 specialties
- Sleep Medicine
A sleep medicine specialist is specially trained in diagnosing and treating disorders involving sleep.
Sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome and insomnia are very common and can often cause other serious health issues, such as depression, asthma, and migraines. Sleep medicine specialists often work in sleep centers where they observe a patient while sleeping and monitor brain waves, behavior, and vital signs in order to identify the causes of sleep disturbance, or an inability to sleep (insomnia).
Sleep medicine specialists treat patients through advising on sleep hygiene, providing cognitive behavioral therapy, using light therapy, or medical sleep aides.
A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.
A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

What in the world is going on at Dr. Skinner's office?? My daughter is 35 years old and has four small children. About three weeks ago she was in icu at Mcleod Hospital. She can barely walk, having trouble talking, severe neurological pain and more. She was told to see a neurologist for a diagnosis. Upon arrival for the appointment Dr. Skinner refused to see her. Stateing she was 15 min. Late her apt was at 8:00am She was told to be there at 7:45 for paper work. She arrived at 7:55am. She left in tears over his refusal to see her. In the meantime she is in pain and not knowing what is wrong. Her appointment was rescheduled with a new Dr. He has brought in. Today was her appointment with this lady dr. She entered the room with absolutely no greeting. She never looked anyone in the eyes, looked down and away. This woman has absolutely no bed side manners. Today was her first day at this practice you would think she could be cordial. First most patients have to wait over an hour to be seen. Seems crazy Dr. Skinner penalizes his patients if they are not there on the dot for his time. I guess a patients time is eralivent. It must be nice to pick and choose who you see, not because they are sick. Very disappointed in that entire office. Dr. Skinner your new partner is rude and seems to not care about you as a patient. Good luck with her. Lighten up on be on time or I'll punish you. People understand how important it is to be on time, you took it to another level by trying to make a point with a very sick girl. Shame on you
Reminds me of Dr. Spock (Star Trek Spock, not the pediatrician). Not a touchy, feely doctor and I'm glad for that. I just want the facts and information. Some people may be put off by that, but I prefer it. He's informative and compassionate, but not gushing. I felt he answered all my questions and gave me enough time so that I didn't feel like he was pushing me out the door. If you expect a lot of sympathy, you probably won't get it, but he will tell you what you need to know.
