Advanced solutions to help you breathe easier.
When allergies and sinus problems control your life, you can feel miserable.
Thankfully, Dr. Shipman can help. He puts his board-certified experience to work for you with state-of-the-art sinus and allergy care to help get you back to your active lifestyle.
This first step is determining if allergies may be inhibiting your enjoyment of your life. Shipman ENT incorporates either a Multi Skin Testing or the RAST Blood Test protocol to determine if you are allergic and to what you may be allergic.
Multi Skin Testing
This test is done by placing a drop of a solution containing a possible allergen on the skin, and a series of scratches or pricks allows the solution to enter the skin. If the skin develops a red, raised itchy area (called a wheal), it usually means that the person is allergic to that allergen.
RAST Blood Test
This test measures the antibodies in the blood to various allergens. This blood test reveals both to what you are allergic and to what degree. With this test we can treat your allergies with either allergy injections or allergy drops. This test is performed in a medical laboratory of your choice.
Ear Nose Throat

Hormone levels decline as we age; bioidentical hormone therapy replenishes the hormones that your body needs to function. Dr. Shipman offers bioidentical hormone therapy integrated with proper fitness and nutrition for women and men. This preventative medical approach helps put an end to the suffering caused by stress induced adrenal fatigue, signs of early menopause, menopause, perimenopause and andropause (the male menopause).

At Shipman ENT & Associates, we know that sleeping well may be the best way to improve your life. That is why we offer physician-supervised sleep care to help determine what’s keeping you from truly restful slumber.
If you sleep poorly, snore, have morning headaches, are fatigued or are excessively sleepy during the day, you could have a sleep disorder. While that can leave you tired and irritable, there are other consequences. For example, these could be strained relationships, poor performance at work or school, and mood problems. Other serious health issues like high blood pressure and heart disease, erectile dysfunction and injury or death could result. These are consequences that can also affect your family and loved ones.
If it is determined that you need a sleep study, it will be conducted in a nearby facility. You’ll rest easy in a clean, comfortable room in a hospital setting, complete with cable TV to help you feel at home. In some cases, a home sleep study could be another option.
Remember, snoring may mean obstructed breathing, and obstruction can be serious. Rest assured in knowing there is hope in correcting these problems.
