Appointment
Called yesterday morning to make an appointment because I was in ED over the weekend. My white blood level count is 17. Well above the normal. I explained what was going on. She says, "and". I say, and what. She goes, "that's it"? I lost it and hung up on her. Do not down play what is going on with me. Obviously it's serious enough that the ED called me to tell me what levels are and to follow up. Needless to say after over 20 years of going there. I will seek other options. I will go there for my meds and physical until I find another provider.

Sub par. I recognize that we are in the days of Covid19 and health care providers are stressed, but I'm stressed too. For an office to outright Lie to me and treat me with utter disrespect is unacceptable. Additionally the support staff is incompetent and has zero problem solving skills. Therefore, how good could the culture be?

I have had good experiences with Dr. Sipperly every time I have seen him in the past 10 years. He models good health and he accepts my refusals of some conventional medical treatments in favor of less conventional alternatives. I trust his diagnostic judgment, as he identified a rare condition my sister had that several other doctors did not recognize. Dr. Sipperly is thorough, efficient and respectful of his patient's schedule. He communicates well, with kindness and understanding. 5 stars!

These people are purposely damaging my autistic spouses' health by refusing to give him the information for his endocrinologist appointment thru a format he can communicate through. They know he makes no hormones of his own and they think it's okay to hang up me me because he is upset in the background of the call when he hasn't had his hormones in months because of their mistakes. They have caused him to be unbalanced with their lack of care then blame him for it. This is willful harm and they

I was in terrible pain from shingles. Dr. Sipperly gave me an anti-viral prescription, but completely ignored my statement that I was in a lot of pain. He walked out of the room as though I had not spoken. Apparently he is afraid of prescribing pain medicine, to the point where he doesn't care how much pain a patient is in.

Dr. Sipperly is always respectful and professional. The staff at his practice, however, are rude, flippant, and have little regard for the patients. That alone would warrant new and existing patients to steer clear. Office staff has no capacity for polite and professional conversation. When asked to speak with a supervisor the staff member hung up on me. Completely unprofessional. Steer clear unless you are a glutton for punishment.
