in Uxbridge, MA |
Performed posterior cervical fusion surgery and would not prescribe enough pain medicine, 2 5mg oxycode every 4 hours was the max. My neight or had anterior cervical fusion which is less painful and his compassionate Dr prescribed 8 5mg oxy condone every 4 hrs. My blood pressure and heart rate were through the roof, visiting nurses and my GPA both said she was not doing her job and putting my health at risk. She has labeled me a drug seeker, I have labeled her Dr Mengle.

Wonderful surgeon very responsive to any concerns or questions! I had L4 & L5 surgery with bone fusion had severe pain shooting down backs of both legs all the way to my feet as well as severe back pain! All pain in legs totally gone some slight off n on pain @ surgical sight and incision but still in recovery stage prior to 12 week mark Tylenol not needed. I would highly recommend Dr Stippler! If I ever needed spinal surgery again I would return To her. She is professional and listens to you

I had a wonderful experience with her from my first appointment to my post-operative care. She is warm and clearly caring about your care. She takes the time to clearly answer any of your questions and concerns so that you completely understand what she has seen and what she recommends needs to be done. She is a conservative surgeon who is not going to do surgery unless you truly need it. In addition, every one of her nurses and staff are also are prompt, caring and helpful answering questions.

I had a great experience with Dr. Stippler. I have lumbar stenosis and difficulties walking. She explained everything to me and showed me the images. I feel I am in good hands with her.

What a caring and smart doctor. I have been impressed by her attention to detail and *incredibly* skilled hands. She took away a complicated brain tumor. And I can now walk well.

Head a great experience. I saw her for a leg pain. She was very through explaining what was going on. I can only recommend her.
in Brockton, MA |
What a super neuro surgeon. Thanks God for Dr. Stippler. I was brought to the Beth Israel after falling in my home. I was diagnosed with a terrible brain injury and a cervix spine injury. She took the time to speak to me and my family before operating in the middle of the night. I'm healing well now. She was so understanding, well spoken and informative. I wish that all doctors treated their patients so well.
