    A good man and a great doctor - he gave me my life back

  • Julie

    Dr. Sheskier has taken phenomenal care of me during the past year - through four surgeries - and he is one of the best doctors I have ever had. He takes the time to get to know each patient - and more importantly he listens and thoroughly answers every question to ensure that patients are informed and comfortable with the recommended course of action. In my instance, I was facing a difficult and unexpected diagnosis and he worked tirelessly with me to make sure I healed properly. I now have the green light to run again and couldn't be happier! The staff here is fantastic- Daniel, Denia and Maggie are truly some of the best medical professionals I have ever worked with - their attention to detail and level of care is unparalleled! I highly recommend Dr. Sheskier!

    Dr Sheskier was AMAZING! He was very patient with me and discussed multiple options for my recovery. He also took the time to explain what was wrong with my ankle and how to prevent injuries in the future (not every doctor does this). I HIGHLY recommend Dr Sheskier to anyone and everyone!

Thinking outside the box, taking time to truly listen to his patient is a blessing for which I am truly grateful.

    I've had two surgeries performed by Dr. Sheskier and I feel like the most fortunate person in the world. The procedures were successful and exceeded my expectations. The care I received was phenomenal. Dr. Sheskier's surgical skills are fantastic. Additionally, he is kind, patient, thorough and modest. I am blessed to be his patient. Dr. Sheskier's staff was terrific as well. They are skillful, helpful and available. Again, I am so fortunate that I was referred to this office.

    I am a returning patient & cannot say enough good things about Dr. Sheskier and his staff. Dr. Sheskier worked with me to avoid surgery on my foot and ankle a couple of years ago- it was successful. He extensively reviewed my options with me...he's extremely knowledgeable, pleasant & caring; I highly recommend him.
