Patient Reviews (1)
in Grovetown, GA |
Dr. Pipkin preformed surgery on my daughter when she was only 1 month old. It was a very frightening and emotional time for my family. Dr. Pipkin's professionalism, and knowledge was extremely reassuring, and helped to ease the anxiety. It is now over 2 years later, and my daughter is healthy and happy. I am so grateful to Dr. Pipkin for his expertise, and excellent bedside manner.
