Dr. Skylar Stumpf dually specializes in Internal Medicine with a focus on gut health, and in Physical Medicine treating orthopedic injury and rehabilitation. In treating the associated multi-system symptom complex, he values compassion and sensitivity: understanding the profound impact on life chronic illness and pain exerts.
