Dr Tipu was the most pleasant, professional, humble and respectful doctor I’ve seen in a very long time. He was very attentive and through throughout my entire visit. So happy I found a PCP that I can say I’ll keep for life.

Very caring and knowledgeable doctor. Never rushes you through a session. Excellent bedside manner. Always answer questions and explain medical conditions and makes recommendations if necessary. Takes walk-in which is very helpful.

This is a walk in clinic not a private practice. It is first come first served. Appointments mean nothing. Total time in office is about 3 hours. Its a shame because I like Dr. Tipu but no doctor's visit should take 3 hours. Its unacceptable and absurd.

I went to see him while visiting my daughter who is a regular patient of his. I was unwell and my daughter notified MD Tipu who suggested I come in despite not having a standing appointment. I'm a diabetic who's sugar was not well controlled. My previous doctor would not listen to my request to change my medicines but Dr. Tipu listened and made changes. Ever since seeing Dr. Tipu my sugars are much better now. I've decided to change over to Dr.Tipu. He is caring, listens, and excellent overall.

Dr. Tipu takes you through the logical reasoning leading to his decisions and judgments. He has sound justification for treatments and knows when not to treat. I have been treated many physicians or various degrees of competence. Dr. Tipu is outstanding.

Best doctor in the history of time. I'm so proud of your accomplishments. We met as children but you have supported me through the horrors of being chewed up and spat out by the NHS Mental Health Services four times. I was always a nervous girl. You know that. You never questioned my truth. Thanks for being almost like a father figure to me. I know that sounds confused but I suppose what I mean is that you have always listened to me with a compassionate air and accepted that was bright!

I became his patient during his residency.I have followed him and now I consider him as a friend. He is the doctor to my wife , my one daughter and two sons. Good man with a good heart.He treated my family members from Jamaica whenever they come to Usa and he has never charged a penny.I have a lot of respect for him. God bless him and his family .

Dr. Tipu is a good doctor, HOWEVER, the way he runs his practice like a walk in clinic is an abomination. Prepare to spend 3 hrs. God forbid you need to get a prescription filled by phone. I spoke to dr. Tipu on phone who was to send in a prescription but he filled wrong dosage. I called his office 10 times to correct prescription and was yessed to death only to be ignored. I gave up. Completely unprofessional.
