I found Dr Sippy to be arrogant and rude. I had cataract surgery with him with a poor outcome which he attempted to dismiss as though I was a nin-com-poop. I got a second opinion from outside Rocky Mtn.Eye where I was found to have "severe aberrant vision" (double) and referred to a top medical center outside the state where my 6 month saga of misery was finally resolved with great care, courtesy and more surgery. Arrogance and self-righteous behavior are dangerous in a doctor.

Will never go back. This guy was rude and talked down to me. He did not explain things unless I specifically asked, and then made me feel stupid for asking. No chairside manner at all. There are many other O.D.s in Missoula, so don't waste your time with him.

Worst experience from a medical 'professional' I have ever had,will NOT return! Very abrupt & spent minimal amount of time w/my first appt. I made mistake of using the term retinal tear for PVD. He acted like I was stupid & a waste of his important time.Wanted to have a local follow up after an eye issue due to an assault, rather than going back to my great OD in GF: big mistake.Quickly asked him about my 'dry eye', which IS on his list here, but he said he doesn't handle that,see someone else!?
