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.
in Smyrna, GA |
The UFE procedure changed my life forever. I can now wear white jeans. my periods are much lighter than before. I feel like a new person and my lifestyle has changed for the better!!! Thank you for being the BEST as what you do...
in Atlanta, GA |
I had an awesome experience. Having UFE was the best possible decision that I could have made for myself. Dr. Lipman and his staff were so nice.
in Stockbridge, GA |
I had been suffering with fibroids for over 10 years. I heard and read about UFE and did some research to compare other procedures. I felt this was the best route for me bc I own a dental practice and did not want to go through an invasive surgery that would have me out for possibly months. I am so happy with the results. My periods are no longer heavy, I don't have accidents and I am no longer in pain. I would highly recommend this procedure to treat your fibroids!
in Atlanta, GA |
Dr. Lipman's life-changing UFE procedure has given me increased ability to be myself again without having to constantly worry about the severe symptoms I was experiencing due to fibroids at only 37 years old. I now know that hysterectomy isn't the only option for this condition and I would highly recommend any woman who is a candidate for a UFE to investigate this option instead of having a major surgery. I was only out of work for a week and have been steadily improving ever since.
Atlanta, GA |
Although the technical skill of this doctor is excellent, his "bedside manor" needs a lot of help. On a scheduled follow up visit, he was agitated, condescending and impatient. I hadn't spoken 2 full sentences yet. Out of concern, I asked about his anger and if this was a bad time to visit. I received more condescension. Soon he calmed down as he likely realized that his behavior made me uncomfortable. I'm very disappointed and hope that he'll be more professional with others.
Atlanta, GA |
I was severely anemic due to heavy bleeding. A hysterectomy was reccommended but I didnt want one and my blood count low. I do not believe in blood transfusions so my options were limited. I had the UFE one year ago and now have regular periods. The staff was friendly & great. My words for Dr. Lipman is thank you, thank you , thank you for allowing me to keep my uterus! Happy days are ahead!
Atlanta, GA |
I was suffering and knew something had to be done about it. I looked into a few other options, but UFE was the best option for me. I had long heavy bleeding periods that were getting worse the older I got. UFE has made my life much better. I'm back to normal or even lighter periods. No more overnight pads all day long. Best decision I ever made.
in Atlanta, GA |
I can honestly say ever since my procedure in December 2016 I feel 10xs better than before. This has totally changed my life for the better in so many ways and on so many levels I can't stop Thanking Dr. Lipman and his staff enough. I would recommend this procedure to any and everyone I come in contact with who maybe going through life miserably due to fibroids. They have been controlling my life for years and now for the first time I feel that I have control over my life again!
in Athens, GA |
The UAE is something I should have done years ago. I have 100% improvements since the procedure was done. I would recommend Dr. Lipman to anyone. Everything went well and I was well informed by Dr. Lipman's office of what to expect before and after the procedure.
in Atlanta, GA |
Dr. Lipman you gave me my life back. Before UFE my cycle took over my life. The pain, heavy bleeding, blood clots, anemia, changing pads frequently. I am thankful, grateful and happy to have my life back. Thank you Dr. Lipman and staff. You took good care of me and I always say you were a god sent!!!! Thank you Thank You
in Woodstock, GA |
Dr. Lipman and his staff are excellent. I would definitely recommend his practice and this procedure to anyone who is considering a UFE. I'm now free of my horrible cramps, urinary urgency and heavy bleeding thanks to Dr. Lipman.
in Alpharetta, GA |
My experience was nothing but great from beginning to end. I didn't have that much cramping and after the surgery I didn't bleed much either. I know everyone has different experiences, all I can say is my surgery was the best thing that I could've done. I feel like my old self again! Much more energy, not feeling sleepy all the time anymore, not being mean anymore, just being able to get things done, my memory is slowly but surely coming back. Thank you Dr. Lipman! His staff is great also!
in Acworth, GA |
My overall experience with Dr. Lipman & his staff has been EXCELLENT!!! I've had fibroids for years, but per my doctors it was not having any harmful impact on my body so it was ignored. However, my bleeding started getting heavy by 2013. Fast forward 2016, it got worse. I would change every hour- & that is with me having on a tampon & 2 pads. I got Anemic. My Ob/GYN recommended a Hysterectomy. So glad I didn't go for such an invasive procedure. UFE has been great. I feel great Highly recommend
in Hampton, GA |
The overall experience was great, however, I would prefer any paperwork that needed to be signed be done before the day of surgery.
in Decatur, GA |
Thank you Dr. Lipman & Staff! My Doctor discovered that I had a fibroid 10cm in size. I spoke with my Doctor and we discussed me having a Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) procedure. I was referred to Dr. Lipman for the procedure. I had my consultation with Dr. Lipman in August of 2016 and the procedure was performed in September. The procedure was painless and the recovery time was just 2 weeks. I recommend UFE to anyone who thinks/believe there are no more options but to have a hysterectomy.
in Austell, GA |
I am beyond satisfied with the results I've received under the care of Dr. Lipman. As a teacher, I was taking two changes of clothes and pads to work. It was very difficult to go about my everyday activities of teaching, coaching, and working out. However, when I had my first consultation with Dr. Lipman, he was very thorough in explaining the UFE procedure and made me feel at ease. There was some discomfort for 2-3 days, but that does not compare to what I've gained, life w/o a travel bag.
in Smyrna, GA |
At the time that I met with Dr. Lipman, fibroids ruled my life. I had to carry feminine products with me everywhere on a daily basis, it ruled how I felt, what I could and could not wear, and my overall health suffered because I did not have energy to do anything at all. After visiting with Dr. Lipman, I scheduled my surgery and my life was forever changed. I am 3 months post-op and I feel great. Thank you so much Dr. Lipman (and wonderful staff), I now have my life back.
in Atlanta, GA |
Dr. Limpan have me feeling like a new WOMAN. I would recommend him to EVERYONE. His staff is great and treated me like famiy , i give them ?????and ???? and UP
in Eustis, FL |
Dr. Lipman was very timely and helpful in solving a serious emergency health situation. He was able to provide advice and comfort to me, and gave specific information to my doctor. Thank you, Dr. Lipman, for your kind and compassionate care!
in Tifton, GA |
I am so happy that I chose UFE. Prior to Dr. Lipman, I had been told by a fertility specialist & a gynecologist that a hysterectomy was my best option for fibroid relief since I did want children. I am 3 months post procedure & have been symptom free since. No more pain, heavy bleeding, accidents, frequent urination, etc. My cycles are normal & for the last 3 months I have felt normal & free. UFE is one of the best decisions of my life. I only regret that I didn't do it sooner.
Louisville, KY |
I felt that physician was knowledgeable, but after procedure if you are still having issues, care and consideration is poor. Some of the nurses are uncaring. billing department is okay, but some charges were not discussed before procedure, and caused undue stress to patient.
in Suwanee, GA |
I'm so incredibly happy that I listened to my husband and sought a second opinion. My GYN doctor told me hysterctomy was the only option for fibroids. Well, I'm here to say it's NOT. I was only out of work for a week, and no real surgery was necessary. I went home with one tiny bandaid-no stitches. My periods used to be heavy and painful but now they are what many consider to be normal. I'm telling everyone I know to consider his UFE procedure. DONT take your GYN doctors word for it-do research!
in Decatur, Ga |
Visited him for a consult after discovering fibroids. I felt very defeated, but after my scan and detailed conversation explaining what they were and why I was having all these symptoms. I scheduled the surgery, his team was fantastic, they were professional, attentive and explained everything that was happening. Just had my follow up and no more fibroids! Symptoms are gone. Dr. Lipman is professional, knowledgeable and I appreciate his care and concern.
