Saint Paul, MN
I went to Dr. Hipp out of concern about a root canal another dentist had done. Before Dr Hipp, I called my Dentist several times, and complaining of sharp pain from my root canal, explained the left side of my face felt numb & tight. I could even taste pus (drainage from affected area.) I got no where from metro dental. You would had thought that they would ask me to come in & evaluate the area. No, they did not.His response was don't chew on that side, we got to get a crown on it. The pain will go away. Well, the pain never did. I begin to cry & feel helpless. I begin to blame myself for even having the root canal done. The only thing I could do was pray & ask God to help me find a dentist that cared because I honestly did not know where else to turn . So, I prayed and ask the Lord to help me. I pray ed, I cried & I prayed.
The Lord heard my prayers and led me to Dr. Hipp. I told him what happen. He was so kind so gentle and explained everything to me in words that I understood. His patience was just remarkable. What moved me the most, was when he took both my hands and said,"I will take care of you and you do not have to suffer anymore" I just wanted to rejoice because I knew the Lord sent me here.
To make a long story short, he put me on antibitotics and pain meds. Within two days or less the drainage had stop and the pain subsided.
The tighness in my face had gone away.
You know, I have been a R.N for over 20 years and I also was a R.N in they military for 4 years as a nurse. So when it comes to assessment about something that is not queit right with my body, trust me, I KNOW!
I would highly recommend Dr Hipp . I have never met a dentist of this caliber. Thank You Dr Hipp for everything. I have nothing but love and tears of joy. God bless you Dr Hipp and your nice staff (Nadia).
