Dr Heather Phipps, is excellent doctor. Always listens to you concerns and gives feedback.

Ha helped me with two cases of tennis elbow and shoulder bursitis. Very knowledgeable and professional would highly recommend.
in Richland, WA |
Dr. Phipps diagnosed the problem with my knee and performed surgery to correct it. I appreciated her straightforward and informative manner in office visits. She thoroughly answered any questions or concerns I raised. I consider the surgery very successful since the pain I was experiencing prior to the operation is GONE. I would recommend her highly and without reservations.

Dr. Phipps did both my shoulder's and my knee's. She use to be very kind. Then went back to her about 9 mo. Ago and she was so rude. She didn't even look at my films or com in the room she sent an intern. I left crying and she said to the intern oh well and laughed. I am sorry but that is not professional at all.
