This evaluation is way way overdue. This is a doctor you want to give a "live forever pill". He is above and beyond most doctors today. He has taken care of my entire family and all of us would wait as long as necessary to see him because when you are in his care it is as if you're the only patient. He is competent beyond expectations. Since moving from the area I have yet to find a doctor that comes close to his medical expertise. My daughters have driven two hours to have his care. Dr. Lipson is a gem!!
