Dr. Skelley’s Practice Philosophy:

I believe it is a privilege, as your child’s physician, to be involved in every aspect of your child’s health.  I feel it is my responsibility to help lead, guide, and direct you, as parents, in caring for your child.  It is my job to stay up to date and current in practice management and treatment.  And, with God as our Great Physician, it is my role, to the best of my ability, to provide you and your child the best, most thorough, medical care possible.  I believe each child is a wonderful work of God, created with a perfect purpose.

I am thankful for my two children, my blessings here on earth…Alex and Brooklyn.  Just by being a Mommy, God has provided me the privilege of learning more about life than I ever dreamed…and certainly more than I could have ever learned from a medical textbook!  My son, Alex, is 11 years old and is all boy and more.  He loves all sports, especially those in which he can run fast!  He is rough, yet gentle; silly, yet so much fun!  My daughter, Brooklyn, is 7, and she is just an example of life and living and love.  She was born with a heart defect, called hypoplastic left heart syndrome, in which most of the left side of her heart is absent or does not function properly.  She has had 3 open-heart surgeries.  We, as a family, have learned many things.  We have learned to live one day at a time, making the most of every second God has given us.  And, we have learned to live life to the fullest, trying to not take for granted even the smallest things.  We have experienced there truly is joy in all things, although sometimes we must search to find it.  We understand we may not have anything to do with the path God has chosen for us, but we have everything to do with the choices we make to get there.  We must choose joy over devastation, gratitude over disappointment.    Ultimately, we have realized there is more to life than just living!
