"Dr. Clippinger has a wonderful bed side manner. He was very friendly and has a great sense of humor. He put me at ease immediately. I needed an injection in the palm of my hand which obviously caused me a bit of trepidation. I need not have worried at all because it was practically painless. He did a GREAT job. He was also very professional in explaining the various conditions I have with my hands. I look forward to my follow up. I would highly recommended Dr. Clippinger. Also I was able to get appointment very quickly and his staff were very nice as well. "

"I had the privilege of being treated by Dr Clippinger for my trigger finger, and I cannot express my gratitude enough. My experience with him has been nothing short of exceptional. He exhibited exceptional expertise and compassion, especially when I had to make the decision to be injected. I acted like a baby about it, but his constant reassurances got me through it; I could not believe when it was over. I am grateful for the excellent care I received- he is a true professional. I recommend his services to anyone in need of hand orthopedic care."

"The epitome, Zenith, over the Moon, out of this world and beyond words. That is the least that can be said about this outstanding orthopedic physician! He is in the class of very, very few outstanding and worthy of five star review physicians. In all aspects of his art and craft, Dr. Benjamin Clippinger, orthopedic surgeon, excels beyond measure. My right hand carpal tunnel is healing nicely; thank you. "

"Dr Clippinger was amazing with my 9 year old daughter! He made her feel very comfortable and was full of knowledge. He explained everything so that we understood. He was very personable and friendly. His staff was also amazing! Lisa who took her X-ray and Jolene who roomed us were very kind and the staff all seemed to work so well together. I would definitely recommend Dr Clippinger and his office!"

"Dr Clippinger and his staff make your pain almost go away, explaining with props and in layman turns what is ailing you. From the moment you walk in, there is a comforting feeling. Dr Clippinger is so patient and understanding and even though I felt I might have been waiting his time, he certainly did not make me feel that way. Thank you Dr Clippinger "

"When Dr Clippinger walked into the room he shook my hand and looked directly in my eyes and proceeded on to ask me questions about what I was going through, he was thorough and explain to me that Dr Gupta is the main doctor for the hip, but if we would need to see him we would move in hatt direction we will, but let's firstl try physical therapy then see where that takes us. That is his plan and I felt okay with that plan."

Data Transparency and Trust: Understanding WebMD Doctor Listings and Reviews

We know that finding the right doctor or provider is important to your health. That’s why we want to ensure you have confidence in the provider profiles and listings you see on WebMD Care. Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.

We value your input and encourage you to reach out to our support team if you encounter any issues.
