    Dr. Schipper performed my surgery over a year ago. Prior to my surgery, I met with him and found him to be easy to talk to, and he explained the type of surgery in a clear, concise manner. He also gave ample time in asking questions about it. Dr. Schipper is a highly competent surgeon, and therefore I would highly recommend him.
