Dr C. Skubisz is the best Doctor I have had in my entire life! I am 63 years old. My standard visit at my former Doctor was; make an appointment, arrive 15 minutes early, get called 45 minutes later, walk through the door where I was greeted by a different girl every visit, get weighed, blood pressure, pulse, then asked the reason for my visit. Usually it was cold or flu. Wait for the Physician's Assistant (PA) or Doctor. PA enters, looks in throat, ears and eyes and writes a prescription for antibiotic and maybe cough syrup. Or, on some occasions, they would say I had a cold and just let it run its course.
Not even once in 40 years did a PA or a Doctor, offer vitamin therapy, hydration during cold and flu season, and/or IV fluids when you were really sick and dehydrated, nor any other form of preventative medicine.
Never! And, within the past 8 years, the traditional Doctor has narrowed service down to one problem per visit.
Doctor Skubisz sat down with me, asked me questions about my work, my life, my hobbies interests and most importantly my concerns about my health, family history etc. Many aspects of preventative medicine were discussed with me so I would know what services would be available to me, vitamin therapy, weight management, prepare for flu season, options for the flu in the event I get it. I had concerns about my blood pressure because of family. I believe I had "white coat" elevated blood pressure! See doctor, blood pressure goes up! Doctor Skubisz took my blood pressure twice a month for a year. My blood pressure is normal for my age, and I am Confident in the results because of the service provided by Doctor Skubisz. My blood pressure became a study, not just an exam.
I decided to become a member of the Truecare Health and Wellness family because of the confidence I have gained in managing my own health, through the expertise of my Doctor! I was skeptical of acupuncture. I decided to give it a try because of all the arthritis I have and the degenerative structural issues with my body that comes with playing hard and living life! After one full year of "learning" how to relax and learning how I can get the most out of the treatment if I listened to the Doctor and then listened to my body, and allowed the process to take place. I am a type A personality, just learning how to relax so my body could heal was a process that took time. Together we have developed an ongoing plan for my overall health and wellness! I feel that I am the owner of my health status! I feel great that I have confidence and reliability in my Doctor, who knows so much about me now that he and Dr Theresa know my family and some of their life challenges! And, they are genuine when they offer their knowledge, skills, and abilities to you, and their service is the BEST I have ever experienced in my life time.
