in Forest Hills, NY |
Thorough skin exam. Dr Lipner is extremely focused and I felt secure entrusting her with my health. She biopsied a mole on my inner thigh that I never noticed. Followed up quickly with tedging results. She is an impressionable physician.
Livingston, NJ |
Wonderful job with botox. Liked the fact that Dr Lipner is a straight shooter and did her job impeccably without boasting about herself. Anyone looking for perfect execution will be extremely pleased with Dr Lipner. Any negative reviews are from patients who are impossible to please and likely don't have anything productive to do.

Went in for a body check. Ended up getting a large mole biopsied. I never noticed it before. Dr lipner was absolutely wonderful every step of the way. She has a great personality and good listening skills.
in Manhattan, NY |
Dr. Lipner made me look younger with fillers and botox. Also added a little pout to my lip. She is def the guru of cosmetics in my opinion!
in Staten Island, NY |
Spent a nice amount of time with me and was very patient with questions. The skin exam itself was so thorough. I don't think I've ever had such a thorough exam in my life. The office called me with the results of my testing promptly. Very nice experience.

She couldn't have been more disinterested and non-communicative. She was staring at the wall when she first started talking to me. She seemed like she was mentally on another planet. She couldn't be bothered to explain any of my conditions. She just kept saying "I'll give you something for it." The main thing I came to her for she wouldn't even look at. The room was not well lit and she didn't bother to come close enough or to shine the lamp on it so that she could have actually seen it. Unbelie

Excellent bedside manner. Caring.

I think I waited in the room for her longer than she actually spent with me. I had a list of things to discuss & she basically wanted talked through all of them while doing my body scan (totally uncomfortable & not easy to have a discussion when you have someone poking you and telling you to flip this way and that). Horrible bed-side manner. She seemed totally un-interested in me as a patient let alone a person when I was asking her about things. Basically brushed it all off & then said bye.
in New York, NY |
Hard to feel positive about a doctor who, within minutes of meeting me, tells me she can't wait to be in the position of refusing to see Medicare patients. Of course, she made this statement knowing that I am on Medicare.
