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.

I was extremely anxious in having cataract surgery. Dr. Shiple and his highly profession team eliminated that by handling me with care and assurance. I can’t be more pleased with the outcome. I would highly recommend him and his office.

Dr. Shiple has helped both me and my wife with different eye issues and both have had positive results. I'm still on the mend from my cataract surgery but my vision is already improved. Not being their fault, Covid-19 made for a busy office, but outside of some extended waiting times I was well taken care of and felt that my needs were important and handle very well. Very satisfied.

Dr. Shiple has recently done both of my corneal transplant surgeries. He and his entire staff have been professional, caring and AMAZING during my entire process! I actually look forward to going there because it is always a great experience! Never a long wait time and I always feel like I am their only patient because he always takes the time to answer my questions and doesn't make me feel "rushed". Dr. Shiple and his staff are the best!
