Stay away! Far, far, AWAY!!!! What can I say about Dr. Lipsen? At first I was grateful to him, I believed he saved my life, however now that I reflect on the past, I had to tell him that I did not have congestive heart failure but lupus (SLE) please run the blood work for that and check my numbers for a flare. I was right, no MD degree needed. I have LUPUS since I was 10 years old. Flash forwards 2 years, I have yet to get better I see this man 1/month I pay this man my deductible and then there
