    Is there anything else you would like to share about your experience with your provider?

    Dr. Skrypzak is a knowledgeable and caring doctor. I felt comfortable and confident with putting my health in her care. The one thing I would suggest to change is to not post test results on the weekend. The results I saw created a lot of angst and concern which had to wait until Monday for conversation and direction.

    The main reason I selected Dr. Skrypzak and continue to see her is that she treats me as the ultimate decision-maker in my care which is most appreciated. I couldn't be more pleased, starting with my very first visit a couple of years ago (having previously seen a now-retired WHA physician with whom I was also satisfied)

    Would have been helpful to have take-home info about menopause as I became pre-menopausal and now that I am postmenopausal. I feel like I was left hanging a bit. I basically relied on internet searches.

    Dr Skrypzac is very caring, knew my personal history as well as my family. Appreciate her direct conversation and personal approach to my care.
