      I was recently diagnosed with stage 3 Colon Cancer. A scary situation for sure, but from the very first time meeting with Dr. Hipp and with his constant contact with me before surgery, I felt very confident in Dr Hipp is the right doctor for me. Five days after surgery I went home feeling great! Thanks Dr. Hipp!!! Dennis Tyler

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
