The best! Easy manner, thorough explanations, great sense of humor. Feel like I know him a long time. All that and a pain free experience. Great staff too. I live 25 miles away and it was well worth the trips. Knees feel much better. Highly recommended.

I have had knee problems for years. Dr Lipton is a fantastic doctor. His knee injections are virtually pain free. Unlike previous doctors. He is extremely knowledgeable and very professional. He takes the time to address all my concerns and options. Dr. Lipton takes the time for each patient and makes sure we understand all options. I have had positive results and will continue to see Dr. Lipton. Thank You Dr. Lipton.

I would be remiss if I failed to acknowledge the excellent treatment I received from Dr. Lipton. A caring, dedicated professional, I have been seeing him for over one year at the Osteo Relief Center. Quite honestly it his overall performance that keeps me going back for treatment of my knees. In my senior years I see many Doctors who help maintain my health and well-being, but none come close to his ability to make one comfortable, but more important well. I recommend him without reservations of

Dr. Lipton is the most thorough neurologist that I have ever been to. He is a caring individual and explains what he is doing, why he is doing it and how it helps with a diagnosis. I saw him when he was with StonyBrook Neurology and he gave me a series of tests and recommended avenues of treatment. I found his manner and professionalism to be top notch. I would recommend him to everyone.

Dr. Lipton is personable, thorough and skilled. He spends time with his patient. I had five gel shot injections with precision and great care. They were virtually painless. The pain in both of my knee joints has lessened. Thank you, Dr. Lipton!

Exceptional attention to the minutest detail. After experiencing two major surgeries, one to reattach my Achilles tendon and associate calf muscle, and the second, the removal of a partial break of my L3, L4, L5 spinal column paralyzing me for 18 months; my knees being seriously compromised were successfully attended to by Dr. Lipton. After his medical assessment, attention to procedural adherence to treatment in precise injection it was within 6 weeks I was able to resume normal activities.

Dr. Lipton has a warm and compassionate manner with his patients. He is a superb listener when it comes to patient issues and given the volume of patients he takes in over the course of the day, it is simple remarkable that he do so.

Dr. Lipton provided a pain free and long lasting protocol to my knee and shoulder area with the use of natural injections that have lasted for many months. His sincere concern and follow up provided me with a great sense of comfort both physically and mentally. He as a kind person who truly cares.

I have complete trust in the evaluation and treatment given to me by Dr. Lipton Ross. I was given a Cortisone injection for my tennis elbow, over 6 months ago. Today my arm is very functional and without pain. Today I am 90% pain free; excellent ROM; and daily function in my job is great.

AWESOME ! I was a patient of Dr. Lipton when he was at Stony Brook Uni. Hosp. Pain Management Clinic. I have been in acute pain since I was 17. That's when I herniated discs in my lower back, at 19 I was hit by an automobile for the 1st time yes, 1st time. I was hit 3 more times riding bicycles. I didn't know what a pain free day was for nearly 40 Years. Back, Neck, Knee, Shoulder, & Migraines ! That's until I met Dr. (Magic) Lipton ! Thank You Sir ! Couldn't be Happier !
