Dionne Skeete, MD

Clinical Associate Professor, Surgery (view Academic Profile)


"I like General Surgery because I enjoy caring for the whole patient. I manage and coordinate the patient’s care before, during and after the full surgical procedure. I am always learning from my patients and from their illnesses. Every patient is unique and my goal is to make the right decision based on what the patient is telling me, what I am seeing and feeling, and what the test results are reporting."
