    Dr. Ipsen is one of the most caring and compassionate Dr. I have ever met. He takes the time to explain things thoroughly. His 2 Pa's are great, too. I would recommend him all day long!
    in Galena, KS |
    Took him time with my family and I. Listened to us. He did not make any promises of healing me totally, just he would try and reduce my paralyzing pain. He did do this. I have and still will recommend him to everyone I see that is needing help. Dr. Ipsen saved my life and I will never be able to repay him for what he has given back to me.
