    My father and I have been seeing Dr. Kipnis for over 20 years. I am 37, just to give you an idea. Was very active in athletics throughout my life, and Dr. kipnis has helped me return to the field, Rink, and Mountain as fast and efficiently possible. He is always professional, kind, and caring. Not too mention he knows his stuff. I would highly recommend him; especially if you are an active person (former college athlete especially), bc as we all know; your body doesn't bounce back as fast

    Terrible. This doctor did not take the time nor effort to take care of my illness and concerns. His staff was fine, but Dr. Kipnis was not. I left his office very depressed at the end of my appointment. I asked him about surgery for my knee, since I have no cartilage and now have bone spurs....or injections that replaces the cartilage between the bones.....he said loose weight and we'll talk. What a thing to say. I spent more time with his assistant than him.

    Dr. Kipnis performed ACL surgery on my right knee in February. He was excellent and my recovery was going real well until I fell walking down a faulty staircase and fractured my patella. He saw me that day even though he was about to leave for surgery when I called the office. I was scheduled for surgery 3 days later. I've seen Dr. Kipnis several times this year and he is always attentive, professional, and takes time to answer all my questions. He also always returns phone calls promptly.

    Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry that you left the office feeling this way. With knee issues, every patient should strive to maintain optimal weight as extra weight can add more pounds of pressure on the knee. I apologize if you felt I did not listen to your concerns. I assure you that I make a thorough review of every patient's chart and their concerns and consult at length with my assistant on every patient.
