23/07/09 5 5 5 4 My experience with Dr. Lipton has been wonderful. He is the first doctor I have had in a long time that will sit down and take the time to listen to everything you have to say. I had a procedure performed by Lipton and he and the staff made it a very easy experience. I highly recommend Dr. Lipton and am confident you will have a good experience as well.  Respond

23/11/07 3 3 1 2 He has a rude, dismissive attitude in the office visit. He completely stopped talking to me, the patient, and spoke only with my companion, ignoring every symptom that I mentioned. He is a very nervous character and constantly in a big hurry to not be where he is, which makes him an idiot in my opinion.

17/01/07 5 5 5 Today I had a colonoscopy with Dr. Lipton, and I want to share my experience with the patient community. My consultation for this procedure with Dr. Lipton was informative. He was polite and pleasant to converse with, and installed confidence in me. He has performed a remarkable 30,000 colonoscopies. Dr. Liptonâ??s prescribed procedure for colon flushing the day before the procedure caused no cramps or discomfort of any kind. Two assistants participated in the procedure. One of them was responsible for the administration of the sedative. The procedure started punctually. I was only mildly sedated and was fully conscious. At no time during the procedure was there any discomfort whatsoever. The procedure completed in a mere 20 minutes. My encounter with Dr. Lipton was a grade â??Aâ?? experience. As a result, I am happy to recommend this physician to anyone in need of a similar procedure.

02/10/06 5 5 5 Dr. Lipton is very good. Even though I was only 38 at the time, he was still willing to give me a colonoscopy because of my family history of colon cancer with no questions asked. He found and removed a polyp when other gastroenterologists might have said I'm too young to have a colonoscopy.  Respond

09/05/06 3 1 1 Treats the patient as the most dumbest person on earth. Impolite and short tempered. Certainly out of the bell curve if you know what I mean. Never recommended.
