Dec 23, 2019
I spent many years chasing after Dr.Gary Tipton at MCV-. He not only taught me everything I know about "Peds", but mentored my daughter, who is now an ARNP_midwife practicing for 14 years in Concord/Laconia, N.H. In my opinion, Gary is as close to perfection as one can find in an MD and human being. If he doesn't know something, he will quickly find out. he is brilliant and kind! I graduated Duke nursing 1964 and continue to live and learn- Gary is my role model!!!

Board Certifications
What’s a board certification and why is it important that my provider has one?

A board certification represents a provider’s dedication to ongoing training in one or more specialties, including the completion of intensive exams. While not all specialties have board certifications, if your provider does have one they’ve taken the extra step to master their specialty and to keep up with the latest advancements in their field.
