    I was a new patient and the wait time for an appointment was over 3 months. I was not in a hurry so no problem for me personally.

    Dr. Skuster was easy to talk to and she was concerned about providing good care.

    Experienced on Apr 23, 2019

    Positive.

    Dr. Skuster is always attentive and knowledgeable regarding my needs.

    Experienced on Apr 21, 2019

    Doctor is awesome. She has a genuine concern for her patients and is very patient with me while I try to tell her something.

    I have chosen Dr. Skuster (3 hrs. away) instead of one 1 1/2 hr. away from my home because of her caring & compassion.

    Experienced on Apr 16, 2019

    Everything was fine with all doctors I saw.

    Experienced on Apr 08, 2019

    Very impressed and grateful for the time she took to listen and make a personal plan for treatment options.

    This visit was good but socially its hard to meet with her. She seems cold and unfriendly. I'm sure its just differences of personality-

    Experienced on Apr 01, 2019

    I had a lot of questions. She was very helpful and I appreciated her time!

    Experienced on Mar 30, 2019

    Dr. Skuster always presents herself in a calm, professional, and friendly manner. I appreciate the fact she asks questions and also provides ample opportunity for the patient to ask questions. I also appreciate if Dr. Skuster doesn't know the answer to a question, she will inform you of this rather than make up a random answer based on an assumption, etc. Also, I feel that Dr. Skuster listens and is thorough.

    Experienced on Mar 30, 2019

    I feel this was a very good visit. Front desk staff is friendly and attentive, medical assistant was very warm and pleasant, and the time spent with Dr. Skuster went well. I appreciate that Dr. Skuster always relates to you as a person. Thank you.

    Experienced on Mar 19, 2019

    Dr. Skuster was very informative. She put my worries & concerns at rest. I was comfortable with her.

    Experienced on Mar 03, 2019

    was perfect

    Experienced on Mar 03, 2019

    she is the best for my condition

    Experienced on Feb 27, 2019

    Disappointment and anger over the 45+ minute wait to see her. Also waited in her office a long time. When you are sick, this makes matters worse. [...]

    Experienced on Feb 27, 2019

    Nice enough but not tuned in to numerous issues I struggle with. I could use warmth and caring but she didn't offer any. I may switch providers but that is difficult to do.

    Experienced on Feb 24, 2019

    I felt the doctor thought I was not really having the issues I saw her about. She was abrupt and not patient with my answers.

    Experienced on Feb 22, 2019

    Great but the wait time was crazy. I was told numerous times that if I was late at all, my appointment would be rescheduled. So, a little disappointing to get there early and have to wait a long time myself.

    Experienced on Feb 22, 2019

    Seems like a nice and competent office and doctor. But the wait time was 45 min. The Physician seemed very aware, knowledgeable and willing to help.
