I had an eye lift and facelift. The tests are amazing! I credit the best practices of Dr. Shipchandler. I didn't take one painkiller, no ice applications, and little bruising. No more turkey goblet neck! Very very pleased.

Waited over an hour to be seen, phone calls not returned promptly- overall subpar treatment at best

Disappointed with my results, still not breathing well through my nose.

Referred to Dr Shipchandler from VA med center as a follow up visit from Surgery at R. Roudebush VA Medl Hospital in Indianapolis. Date of service 10/30/2014. The office visit was short & bill for looking into my nose with a small scope was $1,642.00 Service with Dr Shipchandler rushed, overpriced and instead of billing VA like they were suppose to, they billed my insurance on record (info from unrelated visit). They wouldn't fix it.100% VA disability coverage and I got stuck with bill.

Absolutely awful! If I could give negative stars, I would. I just now paid off bills from 2014 for Dr. Shipchandler. He charged me almost $2000 for an in office procedure which he billed as surgery without even asking/telling me!!! He, in my opinion, doesn't care about his patients...only his bottom line.
