Have you seen Dr. Paul M Shipkin?
PAID HACK BY INSERVCO INSURANCE
Self-verified patient of Dr. Paul M Shipkin - Posted on December 15th, 2017
Wife sent to him for an IME....it was anything but independent! He falsified his findings to reflect a "return-to-work" status and hid behind "subjective" interpretations. He disregarded several other highly qualified doctors to manufacture a result suitable to the insurance company. It seems that he follows the money...if you have good insurance that he can collect on, he's a "great" doctor....if you're there for a worker's comp IME, he sides with whoever is paying him. It's a shame....he has a solid background in his field, but he prostitutes himself to the fattest bankroll....be weary of this guy.....!
Not for people on workers comp

Works for the insurance company not for the worker...sends people back to work too early.... even though you are still recovering from a work injury even though other doctors still have you out indefinitel y

He didn't listen to what I have to say at all he felt calling me bland I wouldn't recommend him to anyone he was horrible.

Pure speculation I noticed the reviews say if sent for an IME he says your fine but if (assuming) a private insurance company sends you he finds something wrong. I saw him too for an IME. He said I was fine but every doctor I've seen has said I am not.
Beware if Workers Comp. IME

Beware of this doctor if workers compensation sends you to him for an IME. He works for them and gets paid to report you are able to return to work no matter how many issues you are dealing with on a daily basis. My husband was sent to him by WC for an IME and despite him trying to return to work part time after his injuries, but had to go out again due to the severity and intensity of his traumatic brain injury and his work causing even new ones, Dr. Shipkin reported he was fully capable of returning to work full time and has no current issues. Yet he is still in therapy, sees other specialists, and tests show otherwise. Dr. Shipkin also wrote false statements in his report insisting my husband said them...I was there..he did not. What a racket they have going together.
Dr. Shipkin helped so very much

I have never met a doctor who listens, take notes, and answers questions in the same manner Dr. Shipkin does. He is without hesitation a life savor. His soft spoken manner and analogies are truly relaxing. He goes above and beyond to help. I hope he never retires!
Expert in his field

Dr Shipkin has been my neurologist for 20 years. I don't know what I would do without him. He returns calls, really listens, provides good advice, and his diagnosis is correct because he thinks everything out thoroughly and discusses it before coming to a conclusion. Dr Shipkin is a brilliant man. My life changed because of him! His receptionist, Maria, is wonderful. She is a kind, caring person who goes above and beyond her normal duties !! I will never leave this office.

Dr Shipkin works for a workers comp insurance company to dismiss claims workers make. Do not trust him he will always make the diagnosis in the insurance company's favor.

A truly caring and compassionate Dr. There is no rushing to get through history or symptoms. He takes a meticulous history and goes above and beyond to diagnose and treat, or refer if needed. I am a retired trauma nurse and have seen my share of great and not so great Dr.s and I highly recommend Dr. Shipkin.
