I met Dr. Sipes for the second time. Very friendly and organized front desk staff. I was seen right on time. Dr. Sipes was very polite, friendly & professional. He listened to me carefully. Examined and answered all of my questions without being rushed. Highly Highly recommend him.

Dr. Sipes patiently listens to me as I explain all of the new stuff I have read, and then goes through each one and explains whether or not he thinks it would change our current treatment. :-) He is also a very good diagnostician.

Outstanding physician. I have been a patient since 1984 and Dr. Sipes has managed my cardiac condition for all but 8 years of that time. I have a complex history and Dr. Sipes always takes the time to listen, explore, research and only then recommend and prescribe. Truly a top doc!
