Care Philosophy

Life is short, live without pain. For those who are in their latter years, I believe my primary job is to help you find the best quality of life for as many years as possible.

in Moscow, TN |
Taking care of my back pain and damaged side nerve pain. Showing me alternatives to pills. He has served our country well and loves it too. Great bedside manner. Very glad I found him.
in Brandon, FL |
Great Doctor,very knowlegible and willing to take time to listen to patients. Desk staff not helpful, will not answer phone, took three months to find someone to accept payment for bill.
in Memphis |
Last year my pain medication doctor died suddenly just before my scheduled appt.I am on methadone and everyone who is on a schedule 2 med. knows the strict gov. regulations.Dr. Gipson was very sympathetic to my plight of finding a doctor on short notice.He was very concerned & got me in in time for my prescription refill. He gives pain blocks in the office at the end of your appt if needed.No need to schedule it in advance and no need to have someone drive you home like Campbell Clinic requires.

Dr Gipson spends time listening & working toward goals to improve your quality of life. He's very compassionate and has your best interest at heart. I have referred a family member & friends and they are very happy their results.
in Bartlett, TN |
Gave me a prednisone shot in my knee, said that he used an ultrasound machine to give shot, but he didn't. Charged medicare and me $350.00. When Medicare refused they billed me and I refused. He FIRED ME as a patient for this. I did NOTHING WRONG.
