      Have been seeing him for many years and sad to report service has been lacking lately. Staff never recognizes who you are and don't identify themselves when answering the phone. I've waited days to get answers from staff although Dr. Sipkins does respond to emails. Turnover seems to be high at front desk. Waiting for lab tests can be very long even when no one is waiting in front of you. Overall can be very frustrating experience.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
