Dr Lipkin corrected my crazily deviated septum this spring. Wish I would've done it 15 years ago when he first suggested it. I sleep better, exercise more effectively, snore less!! He answered all my questions until I was content, explainly procedures on my level. Very thorough without ordering unnecessary tests. Front office handled my billing and surgery scheduling with ease. My firefighter son had his broken nose corrected and my daughter had a sinus tumor removed by Dr Lipkin. Very pleased!

At 2:50am I called the doctor on call because of severe of green drainage and unable to sleep and difficulty blowing my nose and popping of right ear. After exampling symptoms Dr. Lipkin said there was nothing he could do over the phone and that in his words "it was inappropriate to have called him in the middle of the night". As a patient this is unacceptable behavior for an on-call doctor. I will never again refer anyone to this practice. I will tell others how unprofessionally I was treated

I had a great experience as Dr. Lipkin's patient. He has treated my sinus infections and he performed bilateral sinus surgery, answering all my questions prior to surgery. My breathing is greatly improved. The office staff are professional and kind and the office runs smoothly. I highly recommend this practice.

Dr Lipkin operated on a lump on my neck - outpatient. Both possible procedures were well explained. I have had no trouble since the surgery. Personality great.
in Denver, CO |
Dr. Lipkin has to be the most uncaring rude doctor that I have ever experienced. He never sat down during my appointment - just said 2-3 times ' I cannot help you'. Did not give me an opportunity to ask just one question. He should retire!
