Ratings for Dr. Ken Skeith
Went to him for years desperately needing help with pain and chronic fatigue. I couldn't take narcs as it causes secondary adrenal insufficiency. I tried so many meds, nothing helped, horrible side effects. So we ran out of treatment options. He basically said chronic fatigue and Fibromyalgia is just your life now, nothing to cure it. So Ive learned I have to pace myself and rest a lot.
Not up to date on AS. Made poor comment about another Dr. Saw resident -he made same mistake 3 times in a row, I gave up thinking the appointment would result in help after that-if the Dr/resident doesn't want to listen to a patient's response, why am I there? Didn't find appointment any help at all-never went back again.
I am an enigma. I've been diagnosed with RA 12 years AFTERWARD I had a liver transplant. I'm immunosuppressed to stop rejection of my organ, now I'm dealing with RA??!! Dr. Skeith has been wonderful to me. Put me on the BEST medication I can take due to my organ transplant, and is constantly monitoring me. I found him to be kind, interested in what I had to say, explained what I have, and told me what he and I can do to make my life less painful!! I find his Allin Clinic staff to be awesome, not so much at the Grandview Medical Clinic.

Medication Pain dairy Photos of inflammation Be accountable to a very strict diet Come prepared to show you are doing your part and this specialist will be willing to meet you more then half way Shout out to his support staff Lovely Friendly Empathic
This dr kept changing my diagnosis, was very unhelpful, did not clearly or fully answer some of my questions without being pushed. My MD did a better job of helping me to get symptoms investigated further. Horrible bedside manner. I got a referral to a different rheumatologist, am much happier with the new dr. I will say that his receptionist was very pleasant and helpful, and appointments were reasonably on time.
I spent a lot of time with his resident. When Dr. Skeith entered he listened to her rattle off my information with his eyes closed he then spent about 2 minutes moving my knees around. Backed away and said I had osteoarthritis, needed new knees, and should consider a cane or a walker-I was 45 at the time. He ordered no tests or images. It was the doc and the knee and hip who got the ball rolling in the right direction. My current Rheumatologist told me that if Dr. Skeith had simply looked at my file that the tests I had had back when seeing Dr. Skeith showed definitively I have Rheumatoid arthritis. He was negligent, and disinterested. I highly reccomend using a different rheumatologist. I would have given zero stars if the site allowed it.
