Dr. Shipp is the nicest doctor I have ever been to. Very Friendly and always had a smile on his face. I was kind of down when I got there, but upon leaving I felt the complete opposite, Thanks to him. I will be seeing him in the future if need be. He is an awesome Dermatologist.

Desmond was extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and easy to talk to. I have already gone out of my way to recommend him to friends and family. The only negative I could say, and this could just be because he talks fast (which I do too and when the nurse or I had questions he absolutely took to time to answer them) he did seem like he was in a rush. I was not at all offended, but I may have asked more questions had that not been the case. Overall extremely happy with the care he provided.

Overall experience very positive. It was refreshing to visit a doctor whose demeanor made my day. A smile and friendly disposition goes a long way. At least it me it does. Smile
