Great surgeon but horribly run office. Scheduler is never available and then calls to tell you when your appointments will be, no working with work or family conflict. I waited 2 hours past my appointment time to be seen by Dr Lipham and the staff is not concerned. Go to the other USC surgeons for anything that is not Lipham's specialty. He has limited time at the Keck location, making it even more difficult to see him.

I suffered severe problems immediately after eating post reflux surgery. This doctor not only did not acknowledge or advise about the problem, he ignored it, did not treat it and made me suffer for many months. He and one of his nurses were very rude and he refused to order the tests for the problem I was having. Not only that, he did not inform me of a torn diaphragm during surgery even after I had severe breathing problems afterward. I do not recommend this surgeon as he does not fix problems his surgery caused.

After seven years of Nexium to manage severe GERD and Barret's esophagus and still suffering, my wife visited Dr. Lipham, who performed a laproscopic fundoplication. She no longer has any symptoms, and takes no medication for Reflux. She later had Barret's ablation to remove the remaining Barret's disease, from which she returned to normal activit in about three days. Every aspect of her care by Dr. Lipham and his staff at U.S.C. has been excellent. We greatly appreciate the quality of life returned to my wife by Dr. Lipham and his team, and highly recomend him.

I had a very rare condition resulting in major surgery. Dr. Lipham was very down-to-earth, caring and took the time to answer any questions. I cannot believe, considering the extent of the surgery, how small the incisions are. All done Laparoscopically...absolutely amazing. This doctor is the best and I highly recommend him.

Very knowledgeable, very approachable and patient, explains things in a very easy to understand way. He is very understanding of the patient's needs and accommodating to the family. He is very reassuring in a stressful situation. Would not hesitate to highly recommend him to anyone. He deserves BIG SMILEY FACE all around!
