none

Gave low rating overall because they billed almost 3x amount they quoted. Even said they would not be able to recoup all costs and would only get half the payment for their work. Check out other doctor rates/procedures before this place. If you decide this place, get everything in writing regarding charges before hand. After procedure, get billing copies and double check them against what insurance was billed. Insurance questioned charges billed and called. Am going elsewhere in the future. Would encourage you to do the same.

Great Doctor

Dr. Tippin is a wonderful and caring doctor with an expertise in his field that is unmatched by most (in my opinion). He is straight forward, caring, thinks beyond the textbook and listens to what you have to say. If you or a loved one is searching for a doctor, Dr. Tippin is the one to choose. I did a lot of research and decided to have my husband see Dr. Tippin. After he treated my husband we were shocked that doctors like him exist. He exceeded our expectations and set a new standard for our future dealings with doctors. As a previous post stated, we need many more doctors like him. Thank you Dr. Tippin for being amazing and sharing your gift with all of us.

If only there more doctors like him.

Dr. Tippin is an excellent doctor. He does not give false hope. Thinks outside of the box. Takes the time to talk to you. Is very caring and very knowledgable. He made a process that is difficult and scary better by being honest and listening to my concerns.
