Dr. Skaggs has more than twenty-eight years of experience practicing internal medicine. She believes that providing excellent care involves knowing the patient as a person and not solely as a list of medical diagnoses. Dr. Skaggs believes there are many factors which influence one's health and it is important to listen to the patient and work together to achieve optimal health for each person. Even though her specialty is internal medicine, she has a strong interest in preventive care, which allows a proactive approach to avoid problems rather than reacting to complications afterwards. This goes hand in hand with her other interest, sports medicine. Dr. Skaggs loves living in Colorado where there are so many opportunities to stay active. Personalizing health care is rewarding for both the patient and the physician. As your advocate, she will work diligently to ensure you receive optimum treatment in order to achieve your goals.
