- Sports Medicine
A sports medicine specialist is a physician who is trained to diagnose and treat injuries and conditions caused by participation in athletic activities.
These doctors are generally employed by professional sports teams to care for the athletes who are injured. They have extensive knowledge of the types of injuries that athletes are most susceptible to, such as stress fractures, sprains, concussions, muscle cramps, ACL injuries, and shin splints.
It is the responsibility of sports medicine specialist to clear athletes to return to the playing field when they are deemed fit. These doctors also advise athletes on how to avoid injury through proper care of their bodies while training.
- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

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!
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.
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.
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.
