"After a non-Guthrie surgeon cancelled his long-scheduled treatment of my hernia, I turned to Dr. Erika Skipton. She arranged for my surgery immediately and did a superb job of performing it. Her follow-up contact and personal meeting were exceptionally thorough, with excellent bedside manners and a welcome sense of humor. I recommend her with the greatest enthusiasm."
