in Richmond, VA |
I first met Dr. Whipple in the 1990's when my Mother was a patient of his (did wonders for her). M first appointment with Dr. Whipple was in 2013 and again, he did wonders for me!! Highest level of knowledge I've ever had the pleasure to experience in a medical professional. His kindness and concern is outstanding and comforting. Without going into details further, I will just say that Dr. Whipple is someone I would trust making decisions about my daily health in any situation. Wonderful Doctor.
