I have a rare condition that required surgery in 2012. I was in a lot of pain and was very nervous about trying to get my health back on track. When I saw Dr. Lipham, I knew I was in good hands. He is simply amazing! He is competent, caring, knowledgeable, and truly the best doctor I have ever seen. I now need surgery again, and Dr. Lipham is the only doctor I would ever allow to perform this surgery. I know I will be in the best of hands with the greatest chance for a positive outcome.

1/15/16 I was diagnosed with advanced EGJ cancer; the gastro-doc who found it said "Go home and call hospice." Not me! I'm fighting. At a local facility I had chemo/rad geared toward surgery. I've had 2 clean f/u PET/endoscopies since. The surgeon there didn't think I should have surgery, but my oncologist and I disagreed. I believe God led me to Dr. Lipham (simply the best!). He will soon do my very complex surgery. He's very smart and caring. So are his staff. Much admired at Hoag!

    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.
