He knows what he's talking about and was truly the right Dr for what I was going through. He can seemjovial somedays and a little distant other days. However, he knows what he's doing and he addresses my concerns and fears. I've been feeling great ever since and have recommended a few of my friends to him who have had foot issues.

This was not a positive experience. Had 2 visits with the Doc for a very painful foot injury. Doc ordered X-rays,MRI at first visit. Second visit was to review MRI. He seemed far more concerned w/ impressing the medical residents shadowing him than w/ properly assessing my injury and recommending best treatment. He reviewed MRI and suggested doing nothing. I reminded him I was still experiencing considerable pain and was a competitive tennis player and he then changed course and recommended a surgical procedure. I'm glad I didn't have my foot operated on because pain soon subsided, and better shoes was all that was needed. I found it unsettling that he was prepared to do an operation that was entirely unnecessary. His front desk asst is often nowhere to be seen.

There are lengthy forms to fill on the first time. Almost no wait time to see the Dr, he's very professional and explains everything. There is an Xray in the facility, so imaging can be done in no time, if needed. Highly recommended.

Very bright and caring doctor, He took his time explaining to me my options and used a model to demonstrate what my problem was. I never felt rushed. He answered all my questions. His secretary was very polite and helped scheduledme a sonogram. A little bit of a wait, but definitely worth it. I highly recommend Dr. Sheskier.

Wonderfully doctor! Takes the time to explain the anatomical and mechanical processes underlying the injury/defect. Does a thorough exam, doesn’t just rely on radiology. Wait times are on the long side, but understandable considering theextra care and attention he gives. Office staff was hit or miss, although it wasn’t entirely clear which employees worked for each practice sharing the space.

Dr. Sheskier LITERALLY saved my life, LITERALLY. I had been to a number of doctors; one had recommended surgery immediately, one had told me nothing was wrong, etc. However, in one visit he diagnosed me, got me on the proper courseof treatment. No surgery needed, orthotics, nerve meds, and a steroid shot, good to go. Love Dr. Sheskier. Love him. Thank you!!!!!!! His office is awesome, love Maggie!

He is a very kind, considerate doctor. He performed surgery on my right foot ten years ago. He remembered me after all these years. The staff is very pleasant. My appointment was booked by Zoc Doc for 11:30, the office hadit for 12 Noon. As a result, I waited a very long time. I arrived earlier than 11:15 since there would be paperwork. So by the time I saw him I was exhausted. I don't know how the scheduling mistake was made, but it added unnecessary wait time.

Sheskier is a fine doctor, but between two visits I've spent more than three hours in the waiting room. Find another doctor, his solid bedside manner is, unfortunately, not worth the wait.

Dr. Sheskier is the best. I'm a dancer and a runner -- and impatient with resting -- he makes me feel cared for and informed. I appreciate the way he took the time to make sure my injury was properly diagnosedand properly treated, and most importantly, he talked to me like I was a smart, body-conscious athlete (not all doctors do!). Never condescending or brisk, always explaining body mechanics to me. Plus, he knows a ton about sports and dance injuries. I am so grateful! Also, his staff is lovely to a person. Warm and welcoming even when the office is crazy.

I waited more than 90 min my first visit and between 30-60 min the second visit (even though I scheduled that one for very early in the am). He rushed through both consultations. He seems more interested in teaching the paradeof medical students that he brought into the consultations than in actually treating me as a patient. He also seemed to be emotionally erratic. I overheard him telling a staff member to "shut up" because too many people required his attention. His radiologist took an X-ray of the wrong leg then blamed me for not telling her she was mistaken. I will not go back to him.

Dr. Sheskier is fantastic. He takes the time to listen to you and thoroughly assess the situation. His office staff is warm and polite, and although I waited a little longer than I would have liked-- I think it was mostlydue to the fact that I was a new patient. I would highly recommend him and urge you to check him out if you're looking for an orthopedist.
