Mass General Giving

Dr. Shipley’s patients praise his knowledge, ability to explain research, competent and calm manner and warm humor. They also speak with gratitude of his tremendous impact on their lives.

“I came to Dr. Shipley with a diagnosis of advanced prostate cancer eight years ago,” says the patient, Mel. “He was very positive and upbeat in his approach and proceeded with injections and radiation over an extended period of time. I am now 81 years of age and in good health. I always feel very much at ease with Dr. Shipley, whom I visit once a year for a check up. I feel good mentally and physically thanks to Dr. Shipley.”

Another patient, Fredrick, says, “Because of Dr. Shipley’s expert care and knowledge, I have been cancer-free for the past nine years. He is a very intelligent and compassionate doctor who is interested in the care of the whole patient. My family and I are extremely grateful.”
