Our family met Dr. Pippenger about 3 years ago for my mother. He is always very patient with her. He listened to all of our concerns. Very detailed in her treatment and progress. Yes, you might have to wait to see him but he is took his time with her and never rushes through the exam. He has been wonderful with her and we all LOVE Dr. Pippenger! Morgan Family

Dr. Pippinger was a waste of time in several different ways. 1. From a medical standpoint, I found Dr. Pippinger to be was than impressive to say the least. He seemed more interested in keeping my dad's business and remaining friendly, than delivering hard messages. 2. From a professional perspective, my father drove 3 hours to see this man and every time without failed waited anywhere from 1-4 hours in the waiting room before the doctor arrived. The man is a joke of a medical professional.

He took care of my dad he was always kind and listened to our concerns He would always spend a lot of time evaluating dad and documenting his decline. He was never in a hurry. Dr Pippenger diagnosed him wit PSP, progressive Supranuclear Palsy. I would highly recommend him

Dr. Pippenger spent time talking to my mom, myself and my sister. He wanted to know all about my mom. I like that he didn't shove meds at us right away. Instead, he gave mom physical exercise to do 3-4x a week. Dr. Pippenger makes you feel comfortable and relaxed by telling you about himself and his family. He's a very interesting man. Wait time to get in for an appointment is long, but I've been pleased so far.

I had my husband to five different doctors wasting at least 3 years of our time together before coming to Dr Pippenger. He took time with my husband, explained everything to us & I would highly reccomend him. He always answered my questions in office as well as if I contacted him through the UAMS Portal. He knows his stuff & never stops trying to learn more keeps up with studies in the field. My husband died one month ago from heart disease but everything Dr Pippenger told us was right on.
Rude and condescending. Seemed to be showing off for his interns instead of caring about the patient and questions about his diagnosis. Would not recommend this doctor.

It is extremely hard to get a hold of the staff and, and feedback on time sensitive matters. I/ve waited weeks for a simple answer.
