Our providers are experts... and great people too! Meet
Crystal Skovly, PA-C, CCH November 2017 Provider of the Month.
Crystal joined the medical staff in 2014 and practices at
Powder River Orthopedics and Spine (PROS), a Campbell County Medical Group
Clinic. She completed undergraduate work in Cell Biology and Neuroscience in
her native state of Montana at
Montana State University, and received her Masters of Physician Assistant Studies from
Idaho State University in Pocatello, Idaho.
Crystal’s interest in healthcare came from her days as a high school
basketball and track athlete. She liked and respected the PA who treated
her sports injuries and chose to specialize in orthopedics and sports
medicine when studying to become a PA.
She came to Gillette to be closer to her family in Montana, and found a
work environment at PROS that enables her to utilize her skills to the
best of her ability. Crystal does casting, applies splints and braces,
does injections and makes referrals to physical therapy and further follow-up
as appropriate. She finds orthopedics very rewarding because if a treatment
or therapy works it can resolve the patient’s problem right away.
If it doesn’t there is a plan in place for the patient to take the
next step they need for treatment. She appreciates the team of physicians, fellow
PA Dave Boedeker, nurses and office staff at PROS, who work together to provide the best
care for their patients.
Crystal and her husband Jason enjoy spending time with their two children;
Shane, 10 and Emma, 4. Jason and Shane are dirt-track race enthusiasts
in the summer, and the family goes skiing in the winter. A stay-at-home
dad, Jason does numerous projects around their home, including re-building
their porch last summer.
Thank you, Crystal Skovly, for providing our patients with excellent care.
