Dr. Skains took his time and listened listened to my questions and concerns while delivering continued treatment protocols that we were in 100% agreement on. I realize they are busy, have tight schedules to keep and are pulled in many directions on any given day. Dr. Skains was calm, reassuring and made me feel I had his undivided attention.

Dr. Skains has extremely well developed patient skills - listening, connecting, caring, explaining, even delivering less than desirable news in an even way. I doubt many physicians could top the combo of these personal skill and professional capabilities as a top notch cardiologist. He's an A+.
