Dr. Tipperman was not only a great Dr but he personally takes the time to make you feel very comfortable and answers all your questions. I would recommend him to all my family members, and I don't think when it comes to eye care there could be a higher recommendation. Chris Zaro

Wow!!! I was skeptical that my high myopia could ever be corrected. Thank goodness for cataracts, and the skilled hands of Dr. Tipperman. He, and his entire staff, made the 2 surgeries so comfortable, and the results are astounding. This morning, I saw the stars in the dark sky, a first without glasses and contact lenses. Thank you, Richard Tipperman!!!!!

At initial visits and pre op visit I told dr. Tipperman exactly what I wanted as a result of cataract surgery. Post op it was obvious immediately that Dr. Tipperman had put in the wrong lens. It was not only not a lens for reading but he had not used a lens to correct the astigmatism. I would not recommend him considering the outcome of my experience.

Dr. Tipperman is outstanding. I only wish I had this procedure (lasix and cataract) earlier in life so I could enjoy my better than 20/20 vision earlier in life. The office staff was amazing and the appointments were on time. The procedure was painless and the results were excellent.

April 27, 2017 I recently had my pre-op evaluation by Dr. Tipperman. Being in medical profession, I can easily see the difference in the services his office provides. Besides being a gentleman, he is intelligent and thorough; he listens to patients’ questions/concerns and answers them all without rushing you out. His staff is also very helpful and well organized. I am going to have my cataract operation soon and have full confidence in Dr. Tipperman. Kishan Agarwal

Dr. Tipperman is a truly exceptional surgeon. I had cataract surgery and the incision was perfect. No pain or swelling, not even any noticeable discharge. Vision is perfect. The first review is correct, this guy is a genius. His staff is excellent as well, and the pre-op and post-op instructions are clear.

Came to Dr. Tipperman after a NY doctor botched my cataract surgery. I thought I was going blind. Dr. Tipperman undone damage the NY doctor did, performed a perfect cataract surgery using the newest state of the art technology, and now I can see again. Dr. Tipperman is a true genius. I am honored to have him as my doctor.
