    I appreciated the professionalism of Dr. Skrypzak during my annual visit. Additionally, I'm not sure the name of the 2 ladies taking my mammogram, but 1 was clearly a new person and did a fantastic job! Your mentor was great working with her and made the process seamless and quick.

    I very much appreciate her compassion and her desire and willingness to treat the 'whole' person, as a person and not as part of a herd of animals to be pushed through as quickly as possible. She is understanding, genuinely concerned for what concerns me about my health and well-being, and believes that all parts of my life influence the gynecological condition.

    I am never comfortable with doctors but Dr. Skrypzak immediately put me at ease. She was kind and respectful. Her diagnosis was clearly stated as was reasons for it. She took a lot of time to explain and answer questions. I left feeling totally assured. That she was willing to communicate with my daughter who is a surgeon out of state about her assessment was a really impressive gesture I did not expect but so appreciated.
