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!).
"Our whole family visits Dr. Phipps, he is very detailed and super friendly! Awesome doctor! We love Dr. Phipps!"
"I was a patient of Blake’s father, Brad, for many years—when he told me Blake was going to be taking over his practice, he told me—“You’ll like him, he’s a lot like me.” And it’s true—I like him a lot, and he has been very helpful to me as I get older. Good guy, good doctor."
"Blake Phipps is an incredibly caring and compassionate doctor."
"Dr. Blake is a chip off the ‘ol block. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Great parents and he is just as capable with a great bedside manner."
"Dr.Phipps is amazing, addressed my questions and concerns, was attentive and listened to what I had to say . Looking forward to continuing to improve my health with him!"
