Dr. Skendzel is not only talented and knowledgeable but he’s also positive, extremely approachable and friendly. I had surgery on each of my knees in late 2017 with Dr. Skendzel and from the first time we met, he made me feel comfortable about having surgery, confident about my recovery, and was even empathetic as I explained the many knee injuries that brought me to his office.
As icing on the cake, Dr. Skendzel has a support staff that is also extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Along with Dr. Skendzel, they helped me get ready for surgery and know what to expect for recovery, they’ve answered all of my countless questions, and always made me feel comfortable leading up to, during, and after surgery.
I have lived half my life with knee pain and would have lived the rest of my life with it and further injuries if it hadn’t been for the optimism for how I could be living and empathy for how I was feeling expressed by Dr. Skendzel starting at my first consultation with him. Instead I’m getting ready for an active summer and my first one since high school without pain. Thank you to all who were a part of my surgery processes.
