Dr. Lipson has been my doctor for 39 years. He has always been very helpful, kind, caring, compassionate, wonderful bed-side manner, and never talks down to you. I have always felt comfortable talking to him and he really listens. He always answers my questions with words I can understand and offers good suggestions to problems. All procedures I've had in his office or in the hospital have had good outcomes. I'm a complicated patient with multiple medical problems. Most doctors don't want to deal with patients who have complex medical problems. Dr. Lipson is very knowledgeable and has always tried to help me in any way he could. He's also very patient which is so important to someone like myself, because I'm not always able to explain things very well or find the right words. Most doctors rush you in and out today. I feel like there just aren't doctors like Dr. Lipson around anymore today, and I feel so lucky to have found him when I did 39 years ago.
Dr. Lipson is the best doctor I have ever seen. He takes the time needed to answer questions and explains procedures thoroughly. Sometimes he runs late because of emergencies but I don't mind because I have been there due to an emergency and was seen immediately.
Paid (or co-pay): $3000
I've had many office visits and two surgeries by Dr. Lipson (the latter cost me upwards of $1000, due to insurance issues) and he's been absolutely great in every possible respect. I reccomend him wholeheartedly. Sometimes you end up waiting a while, but it's totally worth it.
