I have found Dr. Sippel to be a very caring, knowledgeable, and professional doctor. She takes her time and is very methodical. She preformed my corneal transplant some years ago, and I couldn't be happier.

Fischer – Jul 21, 2019
I was very squeamish about someone going in to work on my eyes. It was only when I could not see the road when returning home from a cross country trip in the dark, at night, in the rain and I realized I might kill us both, that I sought out a doctor for my cataracts. Dr. Sippel is the most professional, highly educated, highly skilled & delightful doctor I have ever met. She removed both my cataracts & I can see with no difficulty. She is caring, careful, and really knows her field. The best!!!
