If you wanted get treated poorly then the Father not the son will treat you exactly how he treats his employees "LIKE GARBAGE" the man has no respect for his patients nor his staff. Don't bother getting treated like a patient rather than a person that is beneath him. Dr Lipton is very rude and inconsiderate.
