My husband and and I went to Dr Lipperd for physicals. He was a new doctor for us since moving from south Florida 4 years ago. Thought staff and doctor were excellent, kind, helpful and listened to us. What we both liked the most was Dr Lipperd wasn't quick to prescribe medicine or tests we didn't need. He evaluated our medical history and compared it to current lab results and other factors. Explained thoughouly why he didn't put my husband on cholesterol medication like other doctors have.

I was very impressed with Dr. Lipperd and his staff. He was very caring, attentive and just seemed to genuinely care about what I was saying to him. His staff were all very friendly and polite. I am so glad that I came here.

Started seeing Dr Lipperd Sept 2016. Our first mtg was to meet each other to determine if right fit. If the receptionist was any indication, Dr Lipperd was a keeper. The same can be said for his medical staff as well as Dr Lipperd. Dr. Lipperd was very welcoming and showed a keene interest in me and what I was looking for in a Family Physician. A pleasure to talk with. My next visit was Jan 2017. This was for a medical condition. No sense repeating myself. Just read above paragraph.
