I was not suffering with all the classic symptoms associated with fibroids but I was referred to Dr. Lipman for a consult. He went over my scan results and explained the UFE procedure in great detail. The procedure was a success and the recovery was quick with very little pain. I am glad to say that now I am symptom free and have my life back. Dr. Lipman and his staff were so caring. It was a great experience and I recommend any woman to consider this as a treatment option.

Dr. Lipman was amazing from the initial visit via Skype because I lived 4 hours away to my surgery. He was very thourough in telling me exactly what he would be doing and what I was experiencing. I thought at age 27 with no kids I would have to have a hysterectomy but not with Dr. Lipman. He helped me through my situation of very heavy menstrual periods. To where I am now I feel much better no blood transfusions lighter periods energy. Overall my fibroids had me in a dark place but not anymore.

Dr. Lipman and his staff are very professional and courteous. I received a thank you card from him and his staff, which was very thoughtful. My menstrual cycles are much lighter after the procedure. He explained and compared the MRI results with me thoroughly.

Meeting Dr. Lipman and having the UFE have given me back my quality of life. I no longer have heavy periods with an unmanageable flow and my stomach has shrunken.. I don't have to worry about "accidents." I had a myomectomy (removal of fibroids 10 years prior). The fibroids came back with a vengeance, but I wan't ready for a hysterectomy. My ob/gyn recommended.Dr. Lipman, He and his staff are so thorough, patient, and compassionate. I'm so overjoyed that I had the UFE because it worked!

I want to thank Dr. Lipman and his staff for such great care during my UFE. I had been to several Doctors and all of them gave me only one option, Hysterectomy and considering the only problem I had were fibroids, I didn't understand why I needed a hysterectomy. Dr. Lipman came highly recommended by a friend who had the procedure over 10 years ago. After my surgery I received a follow up call and have been told my progress is going good and I feel so much better. I would truly recommend.

Dr. Lipman was very informative and very encouraging through out the process. His bed side manners are awesome and he has the most pleasant demeanor every visit. Even those things I didn't understand or concerns I had after procedure, He and his staff where readily available to answer any questions and make sure my understanding was clear.

Doris Upshur-Part 3 of 3 I was skeptical and fearful of having surgery, but now I’m happy that I had UFE. My recovery was short and pain free. I highly recommend Dr. Lipman and his staff. My only regret is that I didn’t have the procedure years earlier.

My Fibroid journey is over! I suffered from the agony of Fibroids for over ten years without any real hope for it to ever be over without a Hysterectomy. Now three months post UFE and I am alive again! My life doesn't consist of the suffering I endured for the nearly two weeks of my period or the two weeks dreading it's arrival. Dr, Lipman and the staff at Atlanta Interventional Institute took excellent care of my and gave me a new outlook on my future.

My experience with Dr. Lipman was amazing! He was very knowledgeable, personable and seemed to genuinely care about helping my situation. I struggled for years with severe fibroid symptoms and doctors told me that a hysterectomy was my only option . After meeting with Dr. Lipman I was so relieved when he said that I was a candidate for UFE. I scheduled my appointment right away and I am so glad that I did. Now 3 months later, my symptoms are nonexist and my monthly cycles are like night and day!

Dr. Lipman is a kind and caring doctor who spends a lot of time explaining the UFE procedure and answering questions. If you have fibroids, he is the doctor to use.

The first time I visited Dr. Lipman, I had very little knowledge of the UFE procedure and was frankly nervous about moving forward. Dr. Lipman is very knowledgeable and took the time to explain what was happening in my body and how UFE will help. He was patient and answered all of my questions. On the day of the procedure I received excellent care from the Nurses and Dr. Lipman. My spouse was coached on what to expect after the procedure and how to care for me. I am doing much better today.

For several months I had been experiencing excruciating pain during my menstrual cycle. I was referred to Dr. Lipman , so I made the call. My MRI showed the cause of my excruciating pain is called Adenomyosis. I had the Uterine Artery Embolization (UAE) procedure. My first full cycle after the procedure, I had absolutely NO PAIN!!! I have referred everyone I know to Dr. John Lipman. He is truly an expert in this field and I’m thankful for his team and his healing hands.
