Dr. Ann Shippy began her career in medicine when the traditional approach and the application of allopathic medicine could not solve her own health issues. At the time, she was working as an IBM engineer for over a decade, but when she became so frustrated with her healthcare situation she decided to leave the field of engineering and attend The University of Texas Medical School.
Dr. Ann’s approach to medicine is a unique blend of measured, precise data with a heartfelt and sympathetic attitude towards all of her patients. This method stems from her engineering background and her own failed experience as a patient of traditional medicine. Currently, she treats patients suffering from any combination of physical, environmental, or genetic issues.
