I’ve seen Dr Shimp for years now and she is wonderful. She truly listens to your concerns and is so empathetic and kind. She really knows her treatments inside and out and I’ve always felt she is proactive without recommending unneeded treatments/procedures. She has always been great about following up with me. I always feel heard and cared about in her care.

I was deferred to Dr. Shimp after my usual doctor retired from practicing. Dr. Shimp is a breath of fresh air! She's incredibly knowledgeable and well informed in the latest treatments and medical advancements. With every visit she really takes the time to talk with me, going over any concerns or questions. It's a busy practice but I've never felt like a number or that I wasn't important. Dr. Shimp and her staff are professional, friendly and very well organized. I would highly recommend them to anyone who inquired. Exceptional!

It has been two years now but she just happened to be the OBGYN on call as I was miscarrying my son at 16 weeks. Other doctors on call refused to see me but Dr. Shimp acted on my needs as a patient. I was so thankful for her care, compassion, and education on what was happening to my body. I suffered an infection and placenta removal but because of her it was not worse than it could have been. I switched to her as my primary after that, so thankful.

I had an appointment booked for over 2 months as a high risk patient to see this doctor. A week or so before my appointment as a new patient her staff calls me to move the appointment. I waited 20 minutes for someone to answer to call them back to reschedule and she cancelled my new patient appointment for a "supposedly c-section scheduled surgery time". Pretty sure Doctor was taking a vacation and not having surgery and her staff was less than impressive so I will not waste my time here.

Dr. Shimp is sweet and sincere. I was originally scheduled to see another physician. After waiting 12 weeks to get in for my first OB visit, the Dr I was scheduled to see called in sick. They offered to reschedule but it was another 12 weeks. Dr. Shimp had an opening available and offered me an apt THATS day. Needless to say, I LOVED HER! I decided to keep going to her. She always allowed adequate time for me, and answered all my questions. So thankful for her!
