Staff is very friendly and competent. Dr. Shiple is also a “people person” and individualizes his consultations and recommendations to the expressed concerns and preferences of his patients. He listens. All services are comfortably provided with attention to all the necessary details of best practice and reflect a true professional. I have been very pleased and feel I received excellent services.

Throughout this process of assessment bilateral cataract surgeries, I have been consistently impressed with the efficiency and professionalism of your organization. Dr. Shiple has excellent "bedside manner", addressing my fears and concerns and answering my questions in a respectful, non-condescending and thorough manner. I am ENTIRELY satisfied, and deeply grateful. The improvement in my vision has been truly life-changing; I am ecstatic with the results.

Dr. Shiple performed cataract surgery for me. I am on the younger side of cataract patients and have many years to live in my new, forever eyes so the selection of the right lens was very important to me. I did my research and then went in to my presurgery appointment loaded up with questions that Dr. Shiple took plenty of time to answer. Together we decided on the best option for me. The surgery went perfectly, it was extremely well organized at both the office and the surgery center and I am thrilled with the results. I couldn't be more happy.

I would clearly and definitively recommend, Dr.Shiple, Ophthalmic Consultants of Vermont, and the Vermont Eye Surgery and Laser Center. The business model, the overall organization and care was consistent and supported their high professional standards. It was refreshing to be treated well and communication was always clear, honest and well informed.

I had both cataracts removed and the experience was very satisfying. Dr. Shiple is professional, courteous, compassionate (sorely missing in many specialists!) and thorough. I felt confident from the initial visit to the follow-up visits. It is nice to feel the caring that he and his staff present.

I have never been so comfortable and confident at any doctors appointment. From the first visit to the first procedure I just felt that every person that I had to work with were very caring and professional people. I am excited to have the cataract on the left removed.
