Excellent. Video conference. Dr. Shipon was friendly and understanding. Easy to talk to. Set up a plan for treatment then asked my opinion of it. The talk itself made me feel better.

With every visit I have with Dr. Shipon I am extremely pleased with the service I receive. Dr. Shipon has always been professional and friendly. She makes you feel very comfortable with her. She listens to you and goes above and beyond to get you the help you need. I have seen several other physicians for pain and even if they were nice, they still simply write you a script and send you on your way. Dr. Shipon is the opposite, if she can correct what is wrong and get you to live pain free, that is her goal. She is the only physician who honors your appnt time. If it is at 8:00 then you will see her very soon after you complete your paperwork and get checked in. I think the longest I have ever had to wait was about 5 minutes after being put in a room. I always tell people to see her if they are looking for a pain management doctor. I would also like to commend the office staff. They are all very friendly and helpful with anything you need. 5 stars for all!!!

The entire staff at her office is polite knowledgeable and capable. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, my 92 year old mother, who is nearly blind, nearly deaf, and very forgetful was dropped off alone by her care facility at Dr. Shipon's office. I was able to set everything up in advance by phone and when she arrived the staff took care of her from start to finish. Terrific service and medical expertise!

My first visit was through telemed because of the Covid crisis. She was very kind, thorough, asked a lot of questions, and ordered some basic xrays to see where I am with my neck and back (something the last practice I was going to hasn't done in the over 2 years I've been going there).

known that I did not fill that prescription & that I was struggling to continue to buy the OTC brand! That means that my Dr.'s MA, who works at a Pain Management office that is supposed to be dedicated to helping patients in pain, apparently found my request for the Dr. too much trouble for her to relay to the Dr. She had zero regard for my pain, for my time in calling back multiple times, nor for my inability to be able to continue purchasing the OTC product! She has absolutely no business working in any office trying to help patients with pain! (I had too much to say that I felt was important to be written here, so I was forced to do this in thirds.)

She has dealt with my issues in the past and continues to help me now. I have pain that keeps me from being as active as I'd like, and I'm able to get injections that help me keep moving. She is very kind and listens to my issues.
