03/04/13 5 5 5 5 I first met doctor Lippe 2 years ago, and at first I was hesitant that he can make my Crohn's disease in remission, but I was wrong. I met numerous doctors before about this disease, but most of them mis diagnosed. So I was always hesitant to meet a new doctor. But Doctor Lippe changed this and from the start he gave me the right meds and my nutrition plan for this disease. He is very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. He helped me choose the medication that fits within my budget. He is very punctual and the office staff is great too. I would recommend anyone with Crohn's or other diseases to visit him.

13/08/12 5 5 5 5 Dr. Lippe is an exceptional physician. I have been to numerous gastroenterologists over the years and he is by far the best. Not only is he brilliant, but he takes the time to explain everything and answers all questions with clarity. He is unlike other doctors I have been to in that he only orders tests that are necessary and doesn't waste time/money with anything that is not essential. It is obvious that he truly cares for his patients and his bedside manner is second to none. I have directed friends and family to his office and they all have been happy with his care. In addition, his office staff is exceptional. They are always very pleasant and find me appointments that work with my busy schedule.

09/08/12 5 5 5 5 I must firmly disagree with any reviews that critisize dr lippe . When i was admitted to bergen regional medical center in 2005 , he was assigned to me as my doctor . thankfully i have been able to retain him since my discharge and strongly recommend him to anyone seeking honest and reliable care . He is my GP as well as my gastro doctor . He performed a colonoscopy on me a couple of years ago and made a procedure most people fear , a very comfortable experience .I would suggest anyone casting dispertions on him insincere and vindictive ....i defy anyone to find a better doctor .

16/05/12 5 5 5 5 I recently had a colonoscopy with Dr. Lippe. He was extremely, caring and supportive throughout the proceedure. The staff and facilities were great. I felt from start to finish like I was recieving VIP care. Dr. Lippe amazingly knowlegeable, and is able to explain things easily in laymans terms. I have never experienced a more caring and knowlegeable medical proceedure.

02/05/12 1 4 1 1 Very unprofessional staff, bills very poorly prepared and you may have problems with insurance payment. Not accepting insurance card payments (cash very much so). and after cashing your check will still send you to collection agency, so please keep all records of payments. Diagnoses and prescribed medications completely wrong, charge for consultation (15 minutes) $350.00. Will NOT recommend to any one !!!

02/06/11 5 5 5 5 I found Dr. Lippe to be very knowledgeable and up-to-date on all aspects of patient care. He was not only interested in finding the source of my problem but also insuring I understand it and how it was to be treated. He seems to have a 'sixth sense' in knowing what your problem is which may come from vast knowledge of medicine but also by truly taking the time and listening to his patients. He was able to find and solve issues other doctors could not. I have referred quite a number of friends and family to Dr. Lippe and he always was able to help. If you want answers, be cared about and spoken to with respect and honesty go to Dr. Lippe!

When you have a consultation with him, he gives you his undivided attention. He always makes sure you are aware of all the aspects of the medical procedure or condition. He even speaks numerous languages which allows him to serve all different demographics. My experience was outstanding and if you do not believe me make an appointment. I swear you will never be able to go back to your old doctors. There is no measure!

02/05/08 5 5 5 5 Dr. Lippe is a brilliant and knowledgeable internist, with an outstanding capacity to put his patients at ease and a great sense of dedication. I have been his patient for over 9 years and feel absolutely confident in his abilities. I am lucky to live in the vicinity of his office in Paramus, but I would have driven much longer distances if necessary for a consultation with him. A trusted doctor is the most important service provider even if you are in good health! Val Golan, Ph.D.
