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 thought that Dr. Skaggs listened very closely to the symptoms that I was having in my left leg. She asked several questions and was able to make a diagnosis giving me some helpful advise and written/illustrated instructions for exercises to do at home to improve the problem that I have been having.

Dr. Skaggs is a good doctor and I have recommended her to friends. However, I will no longer recommend her because I am very unhappy with Optum's system.

The only thing was with my labs. the insurance company has stopped covering thyroid tsa levels, and I need those. I had no way of knowing that I wasn't going to be able to talk to my doctor about my thyroid levels. I did get a second lab drawn, but it would be nice to know if my labs are going to not cover something so important ahead of time. I'll happily pay for that information.
