Dr. Trippe has been a godsend to me. He is so thorough, so professional & has a great personality. For almost 3 months, my blood pressure spiked daily reaching stroke level, my heart beat wildly & irradically. Other doctors found nothing wrong & just put me on meds to cover the symptoms. When I decided in desperation to go to an endocrinologist, I chose Dr Trippe. He immediately recognized that my thyroid was the cause, & now I'm back to normal & dropped the unnecessary meds. ?

I have been a patient of Dr Trippe for 3 years, and continue to see him for treatment. I too have frustrations with wait times, and getting prescriptions transferred timely to my pharmacy. However, I must state emphatically that Dr Trippe is the most competent, most caring Dr I have dealt with for some time. He cares about the individual and seeks to help not only with specialized diagnosis and treatment, but the overall well being as well.

As I am a veterinarian, it is very hard for me to find a Doctor I deem as competent or trustworthy. Dr. Trippe is without a doubt, the most competent, caring, and through endocrinologist I have ever seen. I will guarantee he does not make you take name brand medications because he wants you to pay the costs or orders unnecessary blood tests. Do some reasearch and ask him why. I will guarantee there is a sound medical reason behind each of his decisions.
in Millbrook, AL |
Although I had confirmed appointments, I had to wait, wait, and wait for several hours. This happened on many occasions. When I finally got to see him, he was rushed and rude. One time we were going over something in my records and come to find out he was talking about another patient and not me. He also ordered all sorts of blood tests and other testing for which I think were not even needed. It has been 6 years since I last saw him. My new endro is great and much better than Trippe.
in Birmingham, AL |
This doctor does not prescribe generic medications, as he is firm in his belief that they are inferior to name brands. He shows no regard for for families he wants to pay in medication costs what they would pay for rent and utilities every month. He also showed blatant disregard for my other medical issues during our visits, and was uncomfortably obsessed with my having children, which he expressed in the creepiest of baby voices.
