As a mom of older children, I wasn't sure if I should post anything. Recent events have changed my mind. My son was assigned Dr. L when I had him 18 years ago. As a baby he developed croup and subsequent problems with his ears and throat as he got older. One winter we went through 6 rounds of antibiotics for ear infections. Upon voicing my concern and thoughts on tubes for his ears, Dr. L told me not to be so overprotective and that he was a kid and kids got sick. He also told me that he would grow out of the ear infections. Well at 13 he was having his adenoids removed by an ENT doctor because he was still getting ear infections and it was affecting his hearing.
As for my daughter, at 4 years old, she started having extreme pain on her right side between her hip and rib cage. Her "episodes" would come randomly and involved intense pain and vomiting. I took her to Dr L many times and his diagnosis was "stomach migraines". No one I talked to had even heard of that! Well 12 years later, my daughter is now going in for surgery on her kidney as she has a twisted ureter that doesn't allow her right kidney to drain properly. So thanks, or more accurately, NO thanks to Dr. Lipnowski, I have had to deal with doctor after doctor until I finally found someone to help my children. I understand doctors are human and make mistakes too, but 2 for 2 is not great odds for me.
my five year old son never wants too see Dr.Lipnowski again why well i'll start by saying . The first thing that came out of his mouth was the only reason why you are here is because I love your mom. Well personally he dose not even no my mother other then doctors appointments. the he explained that I missed appointment and swore in front of my five year old son which set of a fear too him right away. Dr.Lipnowski disregaurded him because I miss appointment I think it about money cause my mom definitely made him a lot. He treated us not right it was very unprofessional on his part my sons sleeping disorder was not helped at all he did not listen too my concerns. it was very sad because I did like him at one time but after that last visit I don't want too go back nor dose my son and that is sad. he works with kids and the kids should feel comfortable and my son did not it was a very bad experience for him.
Extremely pleased with the care the Dr. Stan has provided over the last 11 years for all 3 of my children. I have recommended many friends to his care. He calls it like it is and I respect him for that. I've never had a problem getting in to see him at the last minute and he has always made my children and I feel comfortable.
I went to the Manitoba Clinic this morning hoping to see either our paediatrician or walk in. I didn't expect to be seen right away. Dr. L saw us with our 7 month old baby and told us that we can't go in like that. He was rude and disrespectful. He was coughing right in front of me and wasn't even trying to cover his mouth. He didn't even asked what's wrong with the baby, all he cared about is that his long weekend better not be affected by us showing up. I left the clinic without seeing a doctor and went to our family doctor instead. I was there because we were concern, no one wants to go to the doctor if they are healthy. He could have turned me away saying they don't do walk ins but instead he freaked out at me and made me feel like a second class citizen. It was unnecessary. If my baby was in immediate danger, he seems the type to just let the baby get worse. He treats his job a 9-5 job, he does not have the humanitarian attitude needed for a doctor.
Dr. Lipnowski has been our pediatrician for 5 years. He was okay with my daughter but once my son was born he was extremely unhelpful. We have since found a new pediatrician. My son has been misdiagnosed multiple times. He has since been diagnosed with acid reflux which I suspect he has had for the last 3 years. Dr. Lipnowski will not refer when he doesn't know, blows off parents concerns and generally does not take the time to listen. I asked multiple times about his constant crying as an infant and Dr. L told me to let him cry in his crib. We have now found out that he has acid relfux which he refused to give us a prescription for or refer us to someone else to investigate. It breaks my heart that my son was in som much pain as a child for this long and my concerns were repeatedly brushed aside. My son also suffered with repeated ear infections and I finally had to insist upon a referral to an ear specialist. He is rude and constantly diregards concerns. Parents know their children!
Our boys have seen Dr. Lipnowski for the past 17 years and we have been extremely pleased with the care and compassion that he has shown. We were always able to get in when we needed and were given the opportunity to ask questions we had. His wonderful sense of humour reduced our worries and made for an entertaining experience. We are now on the adventure to find a new doctor for our 18 year old son. We only hope that we are as fortunate as we have been with Dr. Stan! We would also like to thank Maria for her support and understanding.
Our original paediatrician retired recently so we had to find a new one. Today was our 4yo daughters first appt with Dr. Stan. We found him to be thorough, gentle, interested, helpful, and kind. Our daughter received him well, and so did we. Keep in mind this was a FIRST visit, we will continue to update here periodically. So far, we're pleased.
When my child was born, she was unlucky to be assigned Dr. Lipnowski as her pediatrician. Because of his lack of care and lack of knowledge, within 3 months my baby daughter practically developed rickets (he said it's ok not to give her Vitamin D while she was a winter baby) and malnutrition (upon Dr. Lipnowski's advice I fed her often but very little). Moreover, when I said she constantly had discharge from her eyes he - without even looking at her - said it would go on for months and that I shouldn't do anything about it. Well, as it turned out, if I hadn't done anything about my daughter's eyes - this was in fact entropion - my baby could have turned blind! I was lucky to bring my baby overseas where we stayed until she was 11 months and where she had superb pediatric care. Upon our return I switched my baby to a different pediatrician but I still resent the harm to her health, which was the result of Dr. Lipnowski's lack of professionalism.
We've been with Dr Stan since 1994. I was a young mom (17 when my eldest was born) and left our previous Dr because she was very condescending towards me. He, however, has been absolutely amazing to us. If he doesn't know something he finds you a Dr that does and he has always taken time to explain things and ask very thorough questions. Yes, he has a quirky personality but it's definitely part of his charm.
