Dr Chhipa and his staff were amazing. From explaining the issues and options to the execution of the surgery and follow up, this group and Dr were fantastic. My elbow is healing and should be as good as new in no time ! Thanks

Update! I went to another Doctor and low and behold guess what? Yes I have a hernia! The New Doctor saw it on the Ultrasound and he did do a physical assessment. Wow imagine that!wish i had that information a month ago! Would have saved me from a painful MRI. Yes i admit most patients probably wont have my experience. But for the exceptions and after talking to a few other former patients i think the public needs to be aware of his bedside manners...

Dr Chhipa is the best around! He did an amazing job from the minute that I walked in his office, and always took the time to explain my options as well as answer all of my questions. The procedure that he did on my elbow was flawless and he made sure that I understood everything before and after the procedure. He truly goes above and beyond to make sure that his patients are happy! Top notch!

One of the best physicians I have ever encountered, from bedside manners to explanation of problem. He explained my problem in simple terms, in analogies I would understand. He spent time with me, I never felt rushed. He is always smiling, and is so friendly and genuine. He even spent time to give me some travel advice on a vacation I was considering. I was also so afraid to get a needle as I had a bad experience before, with Dr. Chhipa, I didn't even know he gave it. He is amazing. Thank you.

Dr. Chhipa was great to work with. He suggested tenex procedure for my partially torn tendon in my elbow rather than full open surgery. I am 6 weeks post with great range of motion and just started to lift very light weights. He was clear answered all my questions.

I saw Dr. Chhipa today and he is the best doctor I have and I have alot of them. He is different, he is very caring and most of all he listens to what you have to say. He is very intelligent and explains all my concerns. He always has a smile on his face, I hope Rothman knows what a great doctor they have. Also, Liz was extreamly helpful and friendly. Thank you Rothman for great service. JoAnne M.

wow, I have never been treated with such professionalism from a group of staff, techs, assistants and Dr. Chhipa. I has no idea how bad my knee could be. I was what I thought was an injury due to an event but it turned out after Dr. Chhipa talked with me and gave me his recommendations. after learning about our family not having insurance (premiums WAY too much) we worked something out and took the route of a cortisone shot. Thankyou Dr Chhipa your manner along with ur staff is top knotch.

Dr. Chhipa was very patient and answered all my questions. He took the time to explain fully what was going on with my knee. I was very nervous to receive the gel shots, but Dr. Chhipa was gentle, and the discomfort was minimal. I highly recommend Dr. Chhipa if you need help.

Dr. Chhipa did a wonderful job of explaining my problem and treatment. He took the time to make sure I understood everything. My Tenex procedure went just as he had described. Scheduling was also made easy with Dr. Chhipa. He has a pleasant demeanor and great attitude! You can tell he really enjoys what he does. I would highly recommend Dr. Chhipa to family and friends!

When you are facing something as frightening as surgery, you must be able to trust your physician. Dr. Chhipa gave me the confidence I needed and the trust in him to move forward with my recent elbow surgery. He is Kind and caring and really takes his time to answer any and all questions about procedures and aftercare. My elbow is in perfect condition now! Better than ever! I may have to pitch for the Yankees!! Go see him! You will love him too!!

I am nervous about getting needles and Dr. Chippa talks to me so I don't focus on him giving me my gel shot. He always is kind and easy to talk to. I like him very much.

I went to Dr Chhipa with a shoulder that I couldn't even move. I had bicep tendinitis and developed a frozen shoulder. After a couple injections and 8 weeks of therapy I have full use of my shoulder again. I highly recommend Dr Chhipa. Great personality and easy to talk to. Thank you Dr Chhipa for giving me back my now healthy shoulder!! Your first class Dr Chhipa.

Dr. Chhipa is very kind and conducts himself in a very professional manner. I always feel that he is considerate of my feelings and he answers all of my questions very thoroughly. I also appreciate that he is on time for my appointment and I never feel like I am being rushed through the appointment. I have already recommended him to several of my friends.
