Cardiologist

Professional statement

Dr David Skolnick graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Columbia University in New York City. In pursuing an interest in French and chemistry, he worked for a year as a research assistant at the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne, Switzerland. He then matriculated at University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. His subsequent training was at Washington University in St Louis followed by a cardiology fellowship at Indiana University. He is board certified in Cardiovascular Disease and holds the title of Associate Professor of Medicine, UMKC School of Medicine. Dr Skolnick receives praise from his patients and colleagues as an excellent clinician and outstanding educator. He was honored in the past with the teacher-of-the-year award from the cardiology fellows. He serves as the medical course director for an annual 2-day regional cardiology conference. Recently, he helped spearhead the development of the Valve Center of Excellence at Saint Luke’s Hospital. This initiative seeks to improve the care of patients with valvular heart disease, particularly those with aortic stenosis and mitral regurgitation. As an integral part of the Heart Valve Team, he collaborates closely with his structural interventionalists and surgical colleagues to offer TAVR and MitraClip procedures to patients with severe valvular heart disease. Since the knowledge base of medicine outstrips any physician’s ability to have a complete grasp of every development, Dr Skolnick collaborates closely with his colleagues to ensure his patients receive the most up to date care.

My visit to Dr Skolnick's office as very positive, I think the Dr and his staff do an outstanding job. They were focused on my condition, were helpful, and did an excellent job of explaining things to me so I couldunderstand. The Dr and his staff are very good at what they do, I very much like his style, he his positive and this comes thru in his staff as well. While I got Dr Skolnick by chance as I was admitted to the hospital and while in ICU he was the Dr that saw me. That was a very luck day for me. I will without question look to Dr Skolnick and his staff for all my future heart related needs and recommend him to everyone.

Dr. Skolnick is an excellent physician. He is very generous with his time and you never feel as though he is in a hurry to move on to his next patient. He has been my cardiologist for over ten years andI am extremely satisfied with the care he has provided me. In the past I have called his office to discuss a medication issue. He personally returned my call to review my experience with the medication and to provide his thoughts on the medication and the appropriate dose for me. I highly recommend him to any patient who wants a smart, articulate cardiologist with a great sense of humor.
