What People Say About Dr. Mark Kipnes, MD

I started with Dr. Kipnes because I was diagnosed as Diabetic. I stay with him because he is interested in all phases of my health and takes the time to give me the most informed view on any condition. I will put up with the crowds in the office and the perennial wait for phlebotomy just because he cares. I have been a patient for over 10 years.

I have seen Dr. Kipnes for at least 15 years. He is very conscientious and catches and then has me follow up on many subtle conditions that many other doctors have not asked about, for example dizziness. While he is an endocrinologist, he probably has taken a greater interest in my overall health than any of my other doctors, including my PCP, who I think are also very good doctors. The office is extremely busy with many doctors and many patients, and usually runs very effeciently.

Dr Kipnis is fantastic and truly caring. I wish I could rate him 10 stars, but I've just had the worst experience with his office staff. I called to get a code they submitted to medicare and after holding for 35 minutes, they hung up on me. I called back and put on hold for 45 minutes then transferred to a woman that said she was the wrong person and transferred me back to operator where after a half hour hold I called back and was told someone would callme in 1 hour - and never did-it's 7pm!

Dr Kipness is a wonderful caring Dr. But getting an appointment is a bad experience. I have called for two days and the line is constantly busy. I will try again tomorrow I really need to see him.

He is a friendly, diligent and thorough Doctor whom you can speak with about your issues and diagnosis. He takes time to analyze and determine how to help you. All around a very pleasant and conscientious Doctor.

The Dr is great but doesn't make up for the lack office customer service. If you care anything about having a reliable appointment time DO NOT GO HERE!!!! They cancelled my follow up appointment and I was not able to make a new appointment at that time. I called back twice and was put on hold and hung up after 20 min. I decided to go in and make my appointment and was told I would have to sit and wait. I was told there were a lot of people in front of me and it would be 20 min or more.
