Patient Comments (2)

Dr. Tripp is very caring as a surgeon. He listens to his patients and takes the time to answer questions. I find him to have a wonderful bed-side manner even though he can be a man of few words.

Dr. Tripp cared. He stayed with me Day and Night for 5 days. I was his Patient and It seem that I was the only thing that madder. It was the worst time of my life and Dr. Tripp ease my mine so I could recover.
