Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr Shippen has the most balanced, accurate, broadest knowledge of medicine, especially hormonal medical conditions, of any doctor I have ever known or been treated by. He correctly diagnosed my very complex pituitary disease in 2003 and saved my life, after ten of the country's top endocrinologists failed to do so over an eight year period of fracturing bones uncontrollably as a 39 year old athletic and previously very active professional. To date, I have never had a better, more valuable doctor
