Dr. Whipple owns two practices in the east valley – Desert Family Eye Care located at 590 N. Alma School Road, Suite 17 and Mesa Eye Care located at 1356 S. Gilbert Road, Suite B3. His goal is to make a difference with his patients and within the community.

Dr. Whipple graduated from the Southern College of Optometry in Memphis Tennessee with honors. He was comprehensively trained in all aspects of optometry including: primary eye care, medical eye care, contact lens care, vision therapy, and pediatric vision. He then relocated back west to practice in Mesa, Arizona and assumed ownership of Mesa Eye Care when his father Dr. Deon retired. 

Dr. Whipple enjoys working with people of all ages and has particular interest in fitting all types of contact lenses including: toric contact lenses (for astigmatism), multifocal contact lenses, monovison contact lenses, gas permeable contact lenses, and orthokeratology (night time contact lens wear to correct nearsightedness).

He is a native born and raised in Arizona. Dr, Whipple along with his wife Kimee and four wonderful children reside in Gilbert, Arizona. Dr. Whipple has a particular interest in American history as well as enjoying outdoor activities, especially hiking with his family on weekends. He has also grown fond of gardening.
