Dr Lipson is the definition of arrogance. He is condescending, rude and has no sympathy for his patients.. A waste of your time and all he does is recommend surgery without doing any X-rays,MRI to see what is going on. Talks out of his bottom. Wouldn't recommend him to ANYONE. The ppl at that clinic is all garbage. He's all about the money.

He's a master at what he does.

I am very statisfied with Dr. Lipson as a hand specialist. If you ask questions and communicate your anxiety regarding your condition, he will take the time to explain the process and diagnosis. I have never felt rushed in his office. He runs a little late with appointments because he and the other specialists in his office are highly respected in their field.

There is NO other hand specialist in the world - someone that can empress me with knowledge and confidence is rare, if you have less than an excellent experience with Dr. Lipson, then maybe you might take a good hard look at yourself being at least part of the problem
Sacramento, CA |
he was awful, rushes, does not take his time, which obviously made him a bad listener, lacks everything it takes to be a good doctor, no people skills, who can trust a provider like him; I would never recommend him, quite the opposite
