in Phoenix, Arizona |
Excellent pre and post operation care. Dr. Lipton did a colon resection on me in April 2017. I loved his gentle nature and when nurses tell you they'd have him do their surgeries, you know he's a winner. Thank you Brian Lipton for being a skilled surgeon.

Loved working with this doctor. Very matter of fact, straight forward, confident. Office staff was great, I helped to get my surgery approved with my ins. (faster with me pushing). I would trust him with other surgeries in future should the need arise. I had a ventral hernia repair. spent ALL the time I needed explaining, not rushed.

Dr Lipton is the best surgeon I have met so far. He explains everything in detail. He is very understanding and his office always gets me in right away when I need to be seen. I will always recommend him to everyone I know. He did my case and it was a difficult one, he is very intelligent.

This Dr was difficult to deal with, acting as if we were wasting his time. (We saw him in the hospital only.) He was arrogant and pompous, minimizing anything we had to say and did not listen. As an RN myself, I was very disappointed in his attitude towards my loved one and would never recommend him. There are too many good surgeons out there to deal with this.

I was terrified of having gallbladder surgery. I looked Dr. Lipton up on Healthgrades and am so glad I went to him. He was thorough and immediately put me at ease about the impending surgery. On surgery morning he arrived fresh and positive.
