Doesn't communicate

He injected a nerve in my foot and clearly said that wasn't supposed to happen. My husband and I heard it. He never apologized or offered reduced price follow up care for pain management which I would not have had to do if he hadn't been trying to be a cowboy.

Run!

This doctor was extremely unprofessional and rude not only to me but his staff. He complained about the length of the appointment time four times to me and yet the whole appointment was less than what was scheduled! He also put down all other competitive doctors and told bad stories about them. He also refused to answer any of my questions. I all of our years have we never met such a man or doctor with such vicious tendencies. We highly recommend that you find another doctor. If he is this way prior to treatment imagine how he would be post procedures!

stay away

Arrogant, rude office staff, especially the front desk receptionist. Did not return phone calls with questions, Arrogant bedside manner. Really long wait times, to schedule an apt and to see the doctor. Yet when I was there waiting for well over an hour and a half, someone came in and asked to be seen and the receptionist sent him right back!?? I heard the whole conversation as the waiting room is small. Unprofessional, at best.

Extremely rude and unresponsive staff, called multiple times with a question, recieved no reply, had to call repeatedly

Dr seems technically good but has an unresponsive bedside manner and is , in my opinion , somewhat unprofessional. Without going into detail, he made a mistake during a procedure and wouldn't go into detail about it when questioned or suggest any treatment for it other than repeat visits to his office. I finally went elsewhere and got the answers I needed to make a decision, which was go to another dr who does prolotherapy.

Parent of teenage patient

Dr Shiple was very helpful in defining exactly what was wrong with my son's elbow. We had seen 2 other doctors that immediately suggested surgery. After an ultrasound exam we agreed that an alternative approach was very feasible. This approach significantly reduced the downtime in my son's activities. The staff worked around our schedule to accommodate us with very short notice. He was informative and patient with our questions. I would easily recommend his services in the future.
