What People Say About Dr. Samara Shipon, DO
Reply
Doctor Shapon was one of the few doctors that listened and actually had answers to my problem. She had new things we could try and unlike the other doctors I have seen in the past she did not just turn us away. I have grown to trust her and I enjoy going to the doctors.
