I'm so relieved to finally find a doctor that will treat my thyroid condition thoroughly and really discuss my symptoms ratherthan just looking at a lab report. I wish I had discovered Dr. Shipman much sooner!

Didn’t address my concerns at all. When asked questions about my other symptoms he kept on talking and ignored me. Spent maybe 5 minutes talking to me. Very disappointed that I drove 40 miles and didn’t get any relief or answers as to why o am having these issues and what can be done to alleviate them.

I went to Dr. Shipman in regards to sleep apnea. He seemed very informed about it and after answering a question I had, gave me additional info that I could read at home. I would recommend him for anyone suspecting they might have sleep apnea.

The visit with Dr. Shipman went very well. Everyone in the office was extremely helpful. Dr. Shipman told me that my ears looked great, no cleaning necessary. Unfortunately, the hearing test confirmed the need of hearing aids, which I thought would be probable. Thank you Dr. Shipman.

Dr. Shipman is always very kind and sincerely wants to help me feel better. He's humble, but it is obvious that he has a wealth of knowledge. He has treated my thyroid and I went from feeling terrible to feeling wonderful! His staff is pleasant and I have never had to wait more than a few minutes. I drive in from out of town to see him and he's worth every mile that I drive!!

My appointment was scheduled for 130P and I arrived at 1:12pm and waited 2 hours to be seen. No one checked on me or let me know the status of my appointment. When I did get seen Dr. Shipman looked in my ears with a light and that was it, no tests, no other checkup, nothing. I was there for an Ear appointment and nothing happened. I wasted 2 hours of my time to be seen for 10 min. If you are scheduled to be seen at a certain time expect to be there for the whole day.

The assistant said "we got a complicated one" when Dr Shipman walked in the room. Dr. S immediately looked me in the face and had genuine concern for how to help me feel better! He explained well, asked questions to clarify my history, and showed real empathy. I am so thankful he got me in on the SAME day I called too.

Dr. Shipman is an amazing ENT, the best in Bryan-College Station! He has been my treating physician for forty years, since I was eleven. My husband and girls visit him as well! Best care ever, especially living in the area that where everything I am allergic to blows through.
