“Dr. Whipple is the finest Dr.! He’s very caring & patient. He explains everything in detail about your surgery & what to expect. He gives you directions on what to do and not to do the first week after surgery. On the follow-up visit, he goes over all the ways to properly heal. Very happy with the entire process. The staff is the best you will ever find! Thank you to all for making this a wonderful experience! I would never go anywhere else!”

“I was extremely impressed at how quickly after my return from vacation an appointment was available. Once at the office the wait time was quite reasonable. Dr. Whipple was very thorough, professional, personable and was able to provide x-rays immediately with results right away. He also set up for an MRI that took place 24 hours later. Even though the Doctor is expected to be off for the balance of the week, the office has already followed up once with me and said they will be in touch as soon as the MRI results are in. I am extremely thankful and happy with the service provided.”
