I just learned of the passing of Dr. Tipton. I was very fortunate to be one of his patients at his practice in Marietta for many years when I was younger and I am so sad to hear this news. I would like to say that he was such a wonderful physician and man. I consider myself blessed for knowing him and guiding me through vulnerable times with my asthma. Today in my late 40's I enjoy excellent health and I contribute much of this to Dr. Tipton and the quality of care he provided. I want his family and friends to know that he was so appreciated and made a huge impact on my life. My thoughts go out to you all. Thank you Dr. Tipton and may God take care of you as you took care of others .
