"Dr. Chipman is the best in pain management! He's extremely knowledgeable,caring, and does as much as medically possible to help keep me pain-free. His staff makes sure your taken care of in a very professional manner, and keeps me informed on what's needed and when. I've been seeing Dr. Chipman for a few years now and know that he's the Doctor to go to for help with pain. I've had serious pain due to my previous line of work and I thought I could just deal with it...almost 17 years was enough. I was referred to him and I now know what a good nights sleep is and to be able to do more than I have in several years. I recommend seeing Dr. Chipman to anyone that needs pain management.  My Thanks and gratitude to Dr. Chipman and Staff" – Jackie L.
