I visited Dr. Kippels when I was applying for early disability retirement decades before my "normal" retirement age. I suffered from Gulf War Illness (GWI), a subset of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), for more than 14 years upon my first visit with Dr. Kippels. Most of 50 mainstream physicians I visited over the course of 14 years acknowledged I suffered Chronic Fatigue or GWI. But all doctors refused reasonable treatment, usually declined to continue office visits at all. In return, I refused anti-depressants and psyche counseling that all mainstream docs prescribed: A Veterans Administration psychiatric team ruled out mental illness as cause of my variety of GWI. A specific, but negative blood test proved GWI or CFS was not "in my head" within 5 years after my pre-deployment vaccines for Desert Storm 1990-91. A VA Compensation and Pension General Medicine doctor documented in my military medical records that I suffered "chronic fatigue" about 2 years before the CDC classified CFS as a physiological disease. It was 5 more years before the CDC codified and classified CFS as a physiological disease. Finally, in 2010, the CDC ruled out mental illness as cause of CFS. Dr. Kippels was the first doctor in 15 years to test my blood for several vaccine-derived diseases I already knew I suffered. Dr. Kippels was the first physician to present multiple treatment options, prescription and compounded drugs, IV infusions, and integrative medicine. I asked for "the cadillac of treatments", and Dr. Kippels delivered. Had I not found Dr. Kippels exactly when I did, I never would have been able to retire on disability: I was dying prematurely, deteriorating rapidly. None of my mainstream physicians would state in writing that I was sick and dying prematurely because of military vaccines and battlefield exposures. Since then, 7 years ago, Dr. Kippels has repeatedly saved my life. Dr. Kippels is the only doctor who believes me when I describe multiple diseases that I relate to either military vaccines or battlefield exposures. Dr. Kippels is the only doctor I have ever known who researches my specific diseases, and reads my research that I present in order to justify specific treatments I request. Dr. Kippels' form of aggressive treatment and integrative medicine is refreshing after more than 14 years of connecting with the "wall of resistance": Mainstream physicians who practice medicine "by the clock" and inside their very small boxes.

 |  The Only Dr. who Actually Listens to a Patient  |  show details

Dr. Kippels is the only Dr. who actually listened to me and my long list of symptoms. I went from Dr. to Dr. to be told that my symptoms were "in my head." Dr. Kippels ran a battery of test 30 and found out that I had extremely high levels of 3 viruses in my body, which caused extreme fatigue and "cog fog." He helped me understand my health issues.
