Dr. Lippolis has guided me through a stressful year of uncertain health issues. He is so thoughtful about treating the whole me. He listens, thinks, and discusses what is going on in a down to earth manner. He is excellent in sorting out the real issues and getting me on the right track. He is the best! He cares.

Tennessee heart is wonderful! The entire staff is very responsive, friendly and it’s like a family atmosphere. Dr.Lipolis list has been my doctor for many years and I will not go to another heart doctor. At 56 I Plan on having him take care me through it all. He is very thorough, and really cares about his patients.

Excellent heart doctor!

Dr. Lippolis is thorough, professional and caring. Some doctors barge into your personal life and some rush through your appointment so fast you wonder if they knew who they were seeing! Dr. Lippolis is a good middle: he doesn't act like your buddy, he acts like your doctor. He doesn't rush but he does use his time with you for your health's best interest

I have been a patient of Dr. Lippolis for over 4 years and quite frankly he is what I would consider a doctor that goes "above and beyond" in regards to patient care. Dr. Lippolis tells it like it is, he is frank,caring and honest what more can I say.

I was referred to Dr. Lippolis while in the C.C.U. at North Crest Hospital. I could not have asked for a more caring or careful evaluation of my situation. Unfortunately, after having seen Dr. Lippolis in his office, I went back into pneumonia and had to be returned by ambulance to North Crest and the unit, Treatment, there, disrupted the treatment Dr. Lippolis had begun, but I will return to the care provided by Dr. Lippolis and his co-workers when the time comes. I recommend him.

Excellent doctor, excellent staff, nice environment. Cares about your health and you well being. Shows he wants to hear what you have to say and how you feel. I thank he is a fine doctor and have put my life in his hands.
in Gallatin, TN |
Appreciated appointment reminder of upcoming visit. Friendly and polite staff. Twenty minute wait--better than most of my medical appointments. Dr. Lippolis accepted lab results from primary doctor and reviewed findings with me. Pleasant bed-side manner--not that this matters as much to me as maybe someone else. After all, he is a professional!
in Gallatin, TN |
Entire office staff is very pleasant. Dr Lippolis is personable and professional, answers all questions and doesn't make you feel he's in a hurry
in Cedar Hill, TN |
Dr, Lippolis is an excellent heart doctor. He has helped stabilize my heart condition, gotten my blood pressure under control and taken me off of a lot of unneeded medication.
Always explains in plain English to me what's going on with me. Gives me positive advice on how to get on board with a healthy way of living. Takes his time and I trust him 100% with my life and that of my family.

Dr. NICHOLAS LIPPOLIS is the only doctor I would ever see for my heart problem. I underwent quadruple bypass surgery on Oct 24, 2005 and have been attended to by Dr LIPPOLIS ever since. I would not even consider another heart doctor as I have complete confidence in Dr LIPPOLIS.
in Hendersonville, TN |
I would certainly recommending Dr. Lippolis. He has been me and my husband's physician for a number of years. He is very approachable and easy to talk with. That means so much to us, as we are getting up in age and need a physician that will listen and explain things we do not understand. Of all the physicians in this facility, he is my favorite. I do believe he really cares for his patients.
