Dr. Phipps was fantastic! I had an accident and my operation was scheduled a few days after my accident. His staff was awesome, friendly and would answer all my questions. I would highly recommend Dr. Phipps.

I had my hip replacement done by Dr. Phipps back in 2012. He came highly recommended. He has a great bedside manner and was not quick to judgement he weighs all options before recommending surgery. I just saw him yesterday for my knee. I find him compassionate, knowledgable and he always takes time to listen to my concerns and questions. I would highly recommend Dr. Phipps to anyone in need of a hip or knee replacement I have no issues to this day with my hip and feel it is better than ever
in Kramer |
He has a fabulous reputation. However, as another person reported, it appears when things don't got exactly as planned, he cares not one iota for the patient. My issue was a simple phone call to the insurance company to explain why PT is not indicated in my case. Instead of scheduling and making that call, my surgery was cancelled 3 weeks prior to the surgery date after being scheduled 4 months. Office staff rarely returns calls. Very frustrating and disappointing.
in Pagosa Springs, CO |
Dr Phipps and his staff are fantastic. I had a total right knee replacement 3 weeks ago. Today, I'm walking with no assistance, climbing stairs and have a "range" of -10 to +120 on CPM. Dr Phipps used the Mako robot for my surgery and I can't say enough about how this fantastic tool in the hands of this skilled surgeon has resulted in my progress during rehab. My physical therapists continually remark about how far ahead my progress is. I highly recommend Dr Phipps!!

When my surgery went wrong,he showed no concern and would't even admit to it, although other specialists confirmed it. If he doe a good job, you are golden, if not don't expect anything from him.
