Dr. Shipon is the kindest, most knowledgeable, upbeat, empathetic physician who knows how to both HEAR AND LISTEN. She understands what my goals are and does everything she can to help me get there. Her staff is just as amazing. I believe she has left her current practice, and I am desperately trying to find where she is going because I will follow her! She’s THE BEST!

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!
