Our medical group has proudly served the Pikes Peak region for over 70 years!

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.

I was a somewhat concerned when I didn't get lab test results reported to me in a timely fashion. However, after I sent an email requesting those results, I heard back right away.

I could not be more pleased with the care I received. I was completely comfortable in the way that I was treated during my visit. I was made to feel that my concerns were completely addressed and that the course of action prescribed is the best possible solution to my situation.

good experience

Skaggs simply did not care. Talked to me, accused me & treated me as though I had caused the condition myself (diverticulitis). Absolutely no compassion. I expressed that I was scared, and cried. She had nothing to say, no assurances whatsoever, didn't even offer me a tissue, I had to get that for myself. Absolutely NO post-visit information/instructions. I received FAR better care, complete post-visit instructions and actual compassion from UCHealth urgent care.

Dr. Skaggs is such a positive part of my health care! She is very knowledgeable as well as caring. She (and her office staff) have responded very quickly to questions, concerns or problems I have had.

Skaggs is the best doc I've ever seen . . . she's awesome
7/9/2020
This provider (Skaggs) was appointed for me due to scheduling of Dr. DeGurse for other patients. Due to the nature of my needs, it was perfectly correct to be appointed to Dr. Skaggs.
