Most medical facilities treat people as patients. Being a friend is the goal of Dr. Skinner and his staff. No lip service found here. Anyone visiting this comprehensive office will experience the difference.
The practice concept was founded on what the doctor felt was lacking in today’s medical world. He felt there had to be an improved method. Getting to know his patients better was at the top of his list. The doctor’s goal is to spend at least 30 minutes with each patient, especially new ones. While symptoms are important, his goal is getting to know the patient. Concerns, worries and other factors come alive with extended conversations that eventually build trust. A proactive wellness regimen is the ultimate goal. This occurs after immediate issues are addressed, are under treatment or resolved. Each patient’s treatment plan is unique.
Convenience and multiple modality protocols are the other key features of this progressive minded practice. Most patients dread the referral factor. Usually another day, time, travel and additional fees start swirling in the patient’s mind. The better way concept Dr. Skinner employs also includes Dr. Brian Winningham, an in-practice Chiropractor. His expertise, adjustments and extensive exercise equipment, compliment standard medical treatment. This is especially effective for patients suffering from sports injuries, accidents and/or chronic physical conditions. A rehab regimen may also be recommended.
