Sep 02, 2023
We were horrified of the diagnosis of Wilm’s tumor stage 4 with our 5 year old son. Dr. Pipkins was wonderful! My son liked him very much and enjoyed their talks about fishing and eating fried chicken. After chemotherapy our son looks forward to the surgery to remove this tumor. I can’t thank Dr. Pipkins enough for taking such good care of our baby. He is truly gifted by God.
