Dr. Shipley is very caring. She listens to the parent and to the child, which alot of dr.s just listen to parent. She has awsome connection to my daughter which makes the whole experience less stressfull for all included. And my daughter has a disability sothi gs can get REALLY stressfull. And Dr. Shipley is just awsome about everything. My daughter is 17 but developementally she is 2nd to 3rd grade level.
Didnt seem to have our appt. in computer. After some whispering and a phone call it seems they worked it out. Then was hit with "you'll be here 2-3 hours today". Visit was for a 4-yr old. Was not told that on the phone when appt was made. 2 hours in, 4-yr old is about done. Waited 20 MORE min in another room then Dr walks in for a 3-4 min test & were done. Had to pay out of pocket - was not told that. Not good with kids at all. Felt we were squeezed in due to sched prob & were made to pay for it
