“There is NO COMPARISON in the quality of care or treatment I received/receive from Dr. Donald Chipman. I have been involved in multiple traumatic accidents in the past 10 years, including a head on collision. For multiple years, I had no success for pain relief. Because of Dr. Chipman, I now have pain relief 25-70% daily, compared to none. Dr Chipman still strives for the 100% and won't stop until it happens or reaches the 100% potential level. You cannot put a price on pain relief. There is no comparison with any other doctor. Dr. Chipman is straight forward yes/no, not afraid to try alternative methods to see what works best for that individual patient, and has the knowledge/skills to make your life manageable once again. What is his secret? I don't quite know. My reason is that Dr. Chipman shows compassion, who cares about your well being and takes the time to list before AND after any procedure, surgery or office visit. Because I receive the highest quality of care from Dr. Chipman, I will always be thankful for his expertise and understanding. Most of all, I will always trust Dr. Chipman's guidance and methods for pain management. If I had not waited for Dr. Chipman to review my past medical history and accept my case, I would still be in pain that is unbearable and no relief. Thank you Dr. Chipman for the quality of life you have given back to me.”

It has been a literal life saver... I couldn't thank Dr. Chipman enough.”

“I have been seeing Dr. Chipman for debilitating back pain for awhile we have tried cortisone injections, and therapy which works, we hit the right place this last treatment on the l-s area, still having both legs feeling fatigued and low backache across the l-s area.

“Dr. Chipman is an excellent physician. From my first visit, he took the time to understand my situation from its beginning to the present and devised a treatment plan that's been very useful for me over the last year and a half. The only regret I have, I wished I had been referred sooner. The conservative treatment is temporary because of the back conditions, but, the quality of life has improved immensely. As Veteran, referred for pain management through Vet-Choice, I couldn't be happier. I have two friends that have back issues, and I suggested they get a referral for pain management, if appropriate and request to see him. Both are very happy with the results and care they received.”
