About

For the past 20 years, Dr. Christopher Skocik, DO, has been a primary care physician with Adena Family Medicine, A Department of Adena Regional Medical Center, of Chillicothe, Ohio.  Originally from Niles, Ohio, Dr. Skocik was inspired to become a family medicine doctor by watching his own family practitioner.  He enjoyed visiting him, seeing what he did and thought he could do the same thing.  Dr. Skocik enjoys taking care of the whole family as it makes it easier to understand a patient’s health when he can see the family history and family dynamics. As a family medicine doctor, he cares for patients of all ages from birth through the senior years. Dr. Skocik has been in practice long enough that some of the children he has treated since birth are now bringing their children to him.

At Adena Family Medicine - Chillicothe, Dr. Skocik sees the complete gamut of illness from regular infections and colds in children and adults to chronic diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol.  Dr. Skocik thoroughly enjoys treating patients with diabetes as there are so many treatment options available.  Dr. Skocik uses a whole-person approach to consider both the physical, mental and emotional needs of patients. 

Dr. Skocik particularly enjoys working with athletes and providing sports medicine. From his enjoyment of skiing and sporting events, Dr. Skocik understands the health considerations athletes need to be successful in their event.

Dr. Skocik is an avid gardener and has recently begun raising chickens.
