Dr. Shipp is awesome. He is very friendly and personable. I feel like I connect with him better. He always includes me in the decision making process I text him on MyChart and he replies to my messages. That is very awesome because a lot of times when you leave the hospital it is almost impossible to get a hold of the doctor again until your next appt. MyChart is awesome!
