I would not recommend Dr Shypula. He seems to be always in a rush or angry or I don’t know how to describe him. I don’t get a chance to ask questions ,because he is in and out. He talk to his computer and when I ask question I feel like I bother him. Unpleasant atmosphere in the room,because I am almost afraid to talk to him .

While this Dr. may be very knowledgeable, he has horrific bedside manner. He’s in and out in 2 seconds and doesn’t give you the opportunity to ask questions. He had me drive to his office (1 hr EACH way) for my appointment on TWO separate occasions just to inform me that my test results weren’t back yet. You call and call and call and no one ever picks up. IF they do, they ask your name, put you on hold, and come back 5 more times to ask your name again. How this business is still running, is beyond me. No one ever knows what’s going on-you go in for your appointment and Dr. Shypula asks you why you’re there. Uh, because you asked me to schedule an appointment? He doesn’t familiarize himself with your chart before he walks in the room so half your appointment is him reading his computer trying to figure out who you are. And my personal favorite-I’m on a blood thinner for life. GOOD LUCK getting a refill of this life saving drug every. Single. Month. If you value your life, go elsewhere

Excellent bedside manner, too the time out to explain my mothers condition, in depth. Very helpful and his sense of humor makes a very trying time, a little easier, with laughter. Highly recommend Dr. Shypula!

Dr Shypula took my blood and said he would run more critical panels. I missed my follow up apt but he sent me a horrifying letter arriving on a Friday saying I missed apt and may have a life threatening dangerous situation. I think intimidating patients is unethical. I called his staff and they said they tried telling him. Obviously he doesn’t listen. I’m glad I didn’t have a heart problem because that letter would have given me a heart attack.

He has awful bedside manners. You need to think quickly and ask your questions quickly while you have the chance. He is always in a rush to go somewhere and your time is up if you don't pose your questions or concerns head on at the beginning of the appointment. It's difficult to ask him a simple question about my health because my appointment is over before it started. One of the nurses will come in, do my bloodwork and then he comes in and then he goes out.
