Patient Comments (2)
New York, NY |
Dr. Lipka is easily the best Ophthalmologist I have ever been to. My wife and I recently moved to Princeton over the summer and I needed a new eye doctor. I initially picked this office for convenience and a few of the positive reviews I found online. The office is clean, welcoming and his entire staff are very helpful and great to be around. Dr. Lipka is very straight forward and helpful with all questions. NOTE TO ANYONE CONSIDERING LASER EYE SURGERY (do it): I also had PRK eye surgery done
in Bellmawr, NJ |
I went to Dr. Lipka for my PRK (vision correction) surgery and am so glad I did. I first visited a Lasik factory type company and they told me I was a perfect candidate, they'll schedule me right away, etc etc. I went for a second opinion and am so glad I did. Dr Lipka immediately acknowledged my nerves instead of ignoring them, and told me specific ways he could work around it to give me the best results. And I still love my improved eyes 1.5 years later.
