Patient Comments (2)
in Picayune, MS |
Dr. Gipson is one of the very few old school family doctors left. Great personality and bedside manner. He has absolutely no "God complex" if he doesn't understand what's going on with you, he tells you that and refers you to an appropriate specialist. By far the best doctor I have ever been too. My only complaint is that since selling his practice to Louisiana Heart Hospital, he has lost a lot of really good staff and most of the new staff don't seem to really care about the patients at all

Very kind and patient. Very personable and allows time for you to ask any questions you may have. Always in good spirits when he comes in the room! Great choice for a family doctor!!!
