Noah Saipe, M.D. is a fellowship-trained cornea, cataract, and refractive surgeon specializing in comprehensive ophthalmology and anterior segment pathology. He prides himself on his bedside manner, on his ability to explain complex problems in easy-to-understand language, and on his eagerness to include patients in all treatment decisions. Dr. Saipe was raised in the town of Libertyville, a suburb north of Chicago. He was a student at Libertyville’s public high school, where he graduated in the Top 10 of his class of over 400 students and was named an Illinois State Scholar. Dr. Saipe then attended Princeton University, the #1-ranked university in the country. He studied neuroscience and psychology, graduating with honors. Dr. Saipe went on to receive his medical degree from Rush Medical College in Chicago, where he received numerous academic scholarships and was elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha medical honor society. Dr. Saipe then completed his internship at MacNeal Hospital in Berwyn, IL. While there, he was elected by his peers as the group’s Representative to the administration, and he was also named the Most Politically-Minded Intern. Dr. Saipe then completed his residency in ophthalmology at the acclaimed University of Wisconsin in Madison. During his residency, in addition to receiving outstanding clinical evaluations and near-perfect patient satisfaction scores, he served as the refractive surgery patient recruitment coordinator and was recognized for his outstanding knowledge of ocular pathology. Dr. Saipe also lectured frequently on topics that included cataract refractive surgery, new intraocular lens technology, and pigmented periocular lesions, and he published numerous articles in prestigious peer-reviewed journals. Following residency, Dr. Saipe chose to further his knowledge and expertise by completing a fellowship in Cornea, External Disease, and Refractive Surgery. Under the tutelage of esteemed mentors Neal Barney, M.D. and Sarah Nehls, M.D. at the University of Wisconsin, he acquired specialized knowledge on the management of corneal disorders and ocular surface diseases, and he received unique surgical training on corneal transplantation, complex anterior segment reconstruction, and various types of refractive surgery. Dr. Saipe was recognized at the end of his fellowship for his dedication to the teaching of residents and medical students, as well as for his superb surgical skills. Dr. Saipe is a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, the International Society of Refractive Surgery, and the Cornea Society. Throughout his education, Dr. Saipe has been passionately dedicated to volunteerism. At Princeton, he was an active participant in the Student Volunteers Council; he constructed houses for impoverished families in Trenton, regularly visited pediatric cancer patients in New Brunswick, and assisted at food pantries. During medical school, Dr. Saipe was on the steering committee of a healthcare clinic for the homeless, using his position to improve the efficiency and quality of patient care, renovate the clinic space, and directly treat patients. In addition, he was the community service chair of his medical school’s chapter of the American Medical Association. In this role, Dr. Saipe organized a team (and raised thousands of dollars!) for Chicago’s Walk Against ALS, served Thanksgiving dinner at the local soup kitchen, enrolled disadvantaged teens in health insurance plans, and organized a holiday gift-drive for low-income families. Dr. Saipe’s public service then continued during his residency and fellowship, when he participated in outreach clinics for uninsured patients and also spent weekends performing eye examinations on veterans. Dr. Saipe is excited to join New England Vision Correction starting in the fall of 2016. He looks forward to using his training to treat patients with a wide variety of needs – from comprehensive ophthalmology to cataract surgery to corneal problems to refractive surgery and beyond. He also looks forward to continuing to help those in need. At home, Noah is the lucky husband of Adriana, who runs her own illustration business, and the proud father of their young daughter Vivian. The whole family is thrilled about becoming Vermonters! They love spending time outdoors – whether it’s hiking, adventuring with their golden doodle Copernicus, or just picnicking next to beautiful sunsets. Noah also has a profound interest in technology (ask him about the computer he built!) and jazz (ask him about playing trumpet for 15 years!). And besides eyeballs, he would love to talk to you about the most recent episode of This American Life!

Why It Matters: Dr. Saipe's Board Certifications
Board certification should be one of your top considerations when choosing a doctor. Board certification is an official recognition given to doctors who have met specific requirements set by national medical specialty boards in the United States.
Board certification indicates that a doctor is highly qualified in the medical field in which he or she practices. A board-certified doctor is more likely than a non-board-certified doctor to have the most current skills and knowledge about how to treat your medical condition.

What is medical malpractice?
Medical malpractice is issued when negligence by a doctor causes injury to a patient. For example, a doctor may improperly diagnose, treat or medicate outside the standard of medical care. The three types of malpractice are: a settlement, an arbitration award, or a judgment.
If my doctor has malpractice history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If your doctor has a malpractice claim, evaluate the information and determine if the action could potentially impact the quality of care you receive. Claim settlements and arbitration awards may occur for a variety of reasons, which should not necessarily reflect negatively on the doctor's professional competence or conduct. You may want to use this information to start a discussion with the doctor about his or her history and specific ability to provide healthcare for you.

What is a sanction or disciplinary action?
A sanction, also known as a disciplinary action, is an action taken to punish or restrict a doctor who has demonstrated professional misconduct. Sanctions may be imposed by a state medical board, professional medical licensing organization, or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
If my doctor has sanction history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a sanction, it does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor-quality doctor. Some sanctions are not related to medical care, and involve a doctor’s finances or administrative activities. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, we recommend that you evaluate the doctor’s sanction information and determine how severe or relevant you think the sanction cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades sanction history go?

What are board actions?
Board actions are non-disciplinary actions imposed upon a doctor based on a complaint investigation. A patient or medical colleague may file a complaint with that state medical board or professional licensing organization, which then investigates the complaint. Board actions are intended to ensure that a doctor is able to perform safe medical and health care tasks.
Types of non-disciplinary actions include an advisory letter, a corrective action agreement, a limitation or restriction on the medical or healthcare tasks a doctor can perform, or a voluntary agreement by the doctor not to practice. A board action can also include a termination of a corrective action agreement or voluntary agreement, which allows the doctor to return to full practice.
If my doctor has a board action, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a board action, it means he or she has had a non-disciplinary action imposed upon him or her. It does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor quality doctor. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, evaluate the doctor's board action information and determine how severe or relevant you think the cause and action were.
