Dr. Shipple and staff are wonderful. I was apprehensive about having surgery but it was an easy process and I felt well taken care of. They are available for any follow up concerns which are addressed immediately. Best of all, I can see the world again!

Jul 03 2020

Review for Dr. Shiple

Cataract surgery results have been great. He is a skilled surgeon. His staff are very friendly and responsive. His doctor to patient rapport is lacking, however. It does feel a bit like a surgery warehouse, but his skill made me overlook the lack of rapport/patient relationship.

I was under Dr. Cooper's care for over 10 years. I'm 85, and I never knew a doctor more thorough than he nor one whose judgment I trusted more. I was in shock when I learned of his retirement. I can wish him nothing but the best and am grateful for the excellent care he provided.

The man was rude, uncaring, and basically wrote off a 2 yo in less than 10 minutes of meeting him. He sat there gleefully listing off all the potential issues this child could have in the future, then told me to get him a wheelchair and feeding tube and suck it up.
