Wonderful doctor !! Dealing with Fibromyalgia for over 30 years, I have seen many many doctors. 90% barely acknowledged my condition, and most couldn't be bothered to spend time to address my concerns. His appointments do sometimes run behind, and that can be difficult for some, but trust me - it's because he is spending time HELPing people, answering questions, paying attention to his patient's needs and concerns. There aren't a lot of doctors out there any more who treat patients with respect and dignity. Can't spare the time of day for most dr's, Dr Skeith I am happy to wait for.
This doctor is so unhelpful. His med students come in and do all of the work for him, then he comes in and graces you with his presence for a couple of minutes. Once he decides what is wrong, despite evidence or questions to the contrary, you are dismissed. Simply awful.
Nice guy who's patient, knowledgable and helpful. This day was backed up so our appointment ran an hour late and main desk lady was somewhat impatient when dealing with clients on the phone and in-person. Dr. Keith himself though was excellent in every regard.
When i went in to see Dr.Skeith im always fairly skeptical of any new doctor due to my past exp. he seemed nice until he saw my age then he seemed to lose the smile and went all business. He seemed like he knew what he was talking about but basically told me straight across that i should never jog again unless i would like to walk in my later years and also to look into a career change. He wrote me a sheet of three different anti-inflamitories and a clinic to go to then by the time i looked up from the sheet he gave me he was gone. He never actually gave me an answer to some of my questions as well... Im very hesitant to go back to him.
Very grateful to Dr.Skeith for diagnosing and treating me. My longstanding problems had been dismissed multiple times and I think I had fallen into the "difficult patient" blackhole. If you need smart this is the doc for you. His kindness and willingness to explain... icing on the cake. Many thanks Dr.Skeith.
I have been a patient of Dr. Skeith's for about 7 years now. At first I wasn't sure about him, but as I've gotten to know him better I am very satisfied with him being my rheumatologist. He is extremely knowledgeable about my AS and always does the required testing to be able to diagnose me correctly. He does prescribe me pain medications but always tells me to use them "as needed". He will even tell me the side effects expected from some of the drugs. I feel very happy to have him as my doctor and hope he doesn't retire for a heck of a long time!
I am surprised to see all of the comments about Dr. Skeiths' bedside manner. I find him to be very personable and compassionate while maintaining his professionality. He diagnosed my FMS on the spot where other doctors failed to identify what was causing my chronic pain. He told me what the options were and seemed to be up to date on current research. He confirmed and applauded my belief in excercise, citing how difficult it can be to convince patients with my condition that this is the best treatment, MOVEMENT. I don't think he is being judgmental about your weight, those of you whom have stated this, I think he is just frustrated that you are making your FMS symptoms much worse by being inactive. Take my word for it, join a yoga class, go swimming, just go walking. You don't have to overdo it, just move!
