    Dr. Lipschitz is a brilliant doctor. He really cares about his patients and is a very trustworthy doctor. He is very thorough in his examinations and goes out of his way for his patients. Not only is he smart, but he is very kind and sensitive to patient's emotions. If you need to see a rheumatologist, you should go to him. He is amazing, not only as a person, but is one of the best doctor's I've ever encountered. Staff is great too!

    I have been a patient of Dr. Lipschitz since 2009. I have seen many doctors for years but non compare to Dr. Lipschitz. He takes so much time with you, takes a very detailed history, listens and understands. He has a funny sense of humor too which makes you feel comfortable. I must say there can be a wait to see him but it is worth the wait because he is very generous with his time and you will understand why once it's your turn...so be patient!

    Dr. Lipschitz worked tirelessly to find what turned out to be a life-saving treatment for my very rare and often fatal condition. Since then he has been extremely attentive, as well as courteous and efficient, in following up on my post-hospital care. His staff is always caring and helpful. Thank you, Doctor!
