Patient Comments (3)
in Naperville, IL |
Dr. Lipinski lacks compassion & knowledge. If you have a nice neat little cancerous growth, then maybe you will be treated efficiently. With the exception of her nurses and office staff, arrogance and being judgemental is what Dr. Lipinski is good at. "People do not choose to become extraordinary, people choose to DO extraordinary things." by Emund Hillary.
in Lombard, IL |
Dr. Lapinski has been treating myself and my family for over 5 years. She is outstanding. She was able to cure my sons warts when two other doctors couldn't. She is warm and welcoming. She makes sure that you fully understand her procedures/ prognosis, and takes her time to answer any concerns or questions you may have. I have confidently referred friends to her, and they always end up having a positive experience. There needs to be more doctors like her.......

Dr. Lapinski is a compassionate, thorough doctor whom takes time to exceed your expectations. Her expertise and warmth will help you heal quickly and get you the reassurance you need to not worry about your skin while taking necessary precautions. Very professional, courteous staff too. I highly recommend Dr. Lapinski!
