Dr. Shipman and her office staff are so caring. My son loves heavy metal and skateboarding, Dr shipman always asks about what cool shows he’s seen or how’s the skateboarding going. It is amazing that she remembers his passions and talks to him about it in the appointments. He’s not just a patient to her but a friend. I love that, because it has made him and me so comfortable with seeing her.

We saw Dr. Shipman for our 4-year old daughter's umbilical hernia and were so pleased! Dr. Shipman engaged our daughter in the conversation and didn't make her feel like an outsider in her own care. While there, Dr. Shipman also noticed a small hiatal hernia that hadn't been diagnosed before. Now that she is 6, my daughter honestly has only good memories about her surgery and refers to Dr. Shipman as "my friend Dr. Shipman."
