Dr. Jared Shippee




I am a podiatrist with extensive experience in Clinical Wound Care, Tele-Wound Care and Clinical Wound Management. I am successful at building and managing a Wound Clinic at the Specialty Clinic at the Fort Meade VA Hospital, increasing patient access to wound care and healing. I pioneered Tele-Wound Care at the Fort Meade VA Hospital, bringing wound care technology to those who would otherwise not receive proper care in a timely manner.

Recently, I expanded my interest in Tele-health by introducing Clinical Video Tele-health(CVT), opening access to all podiatry related issues, not just wound care. I introduced new technology and products to the Podiatry and Wound Clinic Department, saving time, money and improving patient care. For example, digital foot imaging for custom orthotics, Botox, Radiofrequency Nerve Ablation, Anodyne Therapy, Small Nerve Fiber Biopsy, and a whole new arsenal of wound products.  I collaborated with a local pedorthist in designing a Rocker Soled shoe to alleviate high plantar foot pressure areas.

Also for the first time in our clinic, I introduced Regenerative Medicine, injections aimed at soft tissue issues, an alternative to steroid shots and ankle injections. Since introducing more effective and innovative products to our clinic, I have saved the VA over $100,000 between 2013-present. I am fluent in Portuguese, English and can communicate well in Spanish.
