Meet Dr. Phipps
Dr. Blake Phipps is a board-certified physician who is thrilled to care for patients of all ages at Lawrence Family Practice Center. He has a special interest in obstetrics and enjoys providing care for pregnant mothers and newborns. This area of patient care allows him to utilize his additional fellowship training by performing obstetric ultrasounds, cesarean deliveries, vasectomies, and tubal ligations. He also specializes in acute and preventive care, chronic disease management, lump and bump removal, and endoscopy which includes upper endoscopy and colonoscopies.
Dr. Phipps earned his undergraduate and medical degrees at the University of Kansas before completing his residency in Family Medicine at John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth, TX. He completed an additional year of fellowship training in maternal-child health, during which he received training in higher risk and routine obstetrics and pediatric care.
Outside of work, Dr. Phipps enjoys spending time with his wife, Ashley, and their dogs, Maggie and Oliver. They are expecting twin boys due December 2021. He also likes cooking, golfing, and spending time fishing and hunting with his father. As a die-hard KU fan, he bleeds Kansas Crimson and Blue (Rock Chalk!).
"First myself for my migraines, and then my daughter for the past 9 years, then my husband for his adult ADD and general health and now my son who is 3 years old have gone here. We now see Dr. Blake Phipps and love him. He always listens and is always good with the kids. I LOVE this place and all of the doctors there."
"As new doctors take the sacred Hippocratic oath they vow that "in purity and according to divine law will I carry out my life and my art." My family has been a LFPC client for over 30 years. This practice is nothing short of exemplary and features a team of caring physicians that can only be described as consumate professionals. As we travel through life turmoil, age, and disease become inevitable. Great doctors get to shield and foster the flickering flame that is human life at its most vulnerable. Often they are the difference between hope and tragedy. Our children are now adults. They have seen thousands of people and will see many more...but the very first one was Dr. Carla Phipps. That will never be forgotten. We have faced many challenges that we managed to overcome because of the amazing people working at Lawrence Family Practice Center. They took an ancient oath and have never forgotten it. A group of special people who carry out their life and art in purity and according to divine law should be cherished and celebrated. We love them and literally owe them our lives."
"All I can say is, if you are looking for a doctor that takes your concerns seriously, treats you with the highest level of kindness, who is adaptive and thorough, go see Dr. Blake Phipps and his nurse Tina. I have never before in my life experienced the high level of care that I have received from them. Not only was I taken seriously, my concerns were addressed right away, I was seen immediately, and I felt comfortable being treated. I cannot begin to express my gratitude to Dr. Phipps and his team."
"Dr. Phipps was attentive during the appointment. He heard my request and addressed it. He made good recommendations moving forward. It was a good visit."
"Excellent young MD. In having worked in medicine myself for many years I have learn how to select a good MD. Dr. Phipps is very knowledgeable, extensive in his exams and kind in his demeaner."
