“Was referred to Dr. Whipple by another physician when conservative treatments for thumb arthritis were unsuccessful. At first, I got reluctant to go to the center, as so many people refer to it as a “factory.” My experience with Dr. Whipple was anything but impersonal. He was very personable, and it was so comfortable having the surgery right there on site. Unlike my spouse, who had Otho surgery locally, and very seldom saw his doctor but a physician’s assistant, Dr. Whipple was present, not only for the procedure but for the follow-up visits as well. The experience was a combination of modern technology and old-fashioned care. For that, I was appreciative!”

“Dr. Whipple is very efficient, professional, and thorough. Gave me options, took cortisone, for now, will probably do surgery on my thumb with Dr. Whipple once the surgical center is open. I had a bilateral carpal tunnel 20 years ago, and they are still perfect! Dr. Whipple is the bomb!”

“My experience with Dr. Whipple is outstanding, I've been to two other doctors for the same thing and was not completely satisfied, so I went to Dr. Whipple. He was recommended to me from others, and he spent more time with me than any of the other doctors did in all the appointments I’ve had in one visit. I was fearful of having the surgery. However, he made me feel extremely comfortable, and I am eager to have this procedure done now. He was confident in taking a different, innovative approach then the other doctors I’ve seen. He thoroughly explained what path he would be taking and made me feel sure that I was ready to get this procedure done. I’m choosing to continue my care with him over my other doctor. Very excited to see my outcome.”
