Dr. Tipperman's office is easy to get to, and his staff is good at what they do. Dr. Tipperman is thorough and considerate. I like working with him.

I have been a patient of Dr. Tipperman's for 16 years for myriad eye issue complexities. There is no one who I would trust my eyesight to with greater confidence than Dr. Tipperman. He has performed lasik and cataract surgery on both my eyes with terrific results. He coordinated my vitrectomy with Mid-Atlantic Retinae with equally terrific results. Not only is he THE most talented surgeon, he is thoughtful, accessible, understanding and dedicated to my eyesight. I highly recommend him.

The doctor is brilliant. His patients are very lucky to have him as their doctor. My experience with Dr. Tipperman was excellent. I came to him following search for the best ophtalmologist in the country. My NY doctor botched my cataract surgery and I had lots of serious problems. I traveled two hours to see Dr. Tipperman. He fixed the problems with ease and I enjoyed the process. The surgery Dr. Tipperman performed was superb, with literally no pain and perfect result. .

A previous doctor diagnosed me as having narrow angle glaucoma. Seeking another opinion two other doctors said I did not have the condition. but recommended I have surgery to remove cataracts. For this year's annual check up I saw Dr. Tipperman. He explained how my cataracts were having some deteriorating effect on my eyes but that generally my eyes were healthy and did not require surgery at this time. I felt confident I had finally received the most reliable diagnosis.

Great doctor. Very happy.

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
