I have been treated by Dr. Pilipshen on three occasions. I can't say enough good about the care I received. He repaired a fissure, did a routine colonoscopy, and banded a hemorrhoid. He and his staff were competent, efficient and successful each time. I have recently moved from NJ to NC, but if I needed further care, I would seriously consider coming back to visit.

What a wonderful doctor! Dr. Pilipshen is warm, kind, and professional. He thoroughly explained how my colonoscopy would be done and what to expect. He and his staff made me feel comfortable and calm. I highly recommend Dr. Pilipshen and I am so happy someone recommended him to me or I may not have done such a simple procedure that can ultimately save your life!

Dr. Pilipshen, his nurse, and office assistants do an excellent job making the patient feel well cared for from the start. He treats the whole patient as an individual, not just a human with a body part that he happens to specialize in. A wonderful doctor!

My fourth colonoscopy with him over the last 16 years. He and his staff have always been very respectful, courteous and professional. Dr Pilipshen carefully explains every phase of the medical process and answers any questions I have. I highly recommend his practice to anyone requiring this type of medical attention.

I am a current patient of Dr. Pilipshen. He maintains a highly professional, effective, courteous staff. He gives me all the information and resources I need to make a decision pertaining to my health. I always feel confident knowing that he is going to advise what need to be done, when it needs to be done, and most importantly, why it needs to be done. I've been seeing him for the last 20 years and highly recommend him.

After a botched up hemorrhoidectomy several years ago I was left with stenosis, a rectocele and muscle problems with my sphincter muscle. all causing ongoing constipation problems. Had to have more surgery by another surgeon to fix the stenosis but the other problems are not as easy to fix. Still having evacuation problems even with heavy duty laxatives. Very long waits in waiting room also. Run away don’t walk.

I just love Dr. Pilipshen. He changed my life so much. He is so very patient, especially with some like me who questions everything and rethinks it over and over. He explains everything in detail, listens and tells you exactly what will go on in surgery and how you will feel afterward. His confidence made me feel secure in my decision with him as my doctor. His staff is the best I have encountered at any doctors office. Everyone there is kind, funny and professional. Thank you!

I would highly recommend Dr. Pilipshen . I had surgery which he explained thoroughly in the office including the type of recovery, length of recovery and pain level to be expected. After the surgery when I called both on the weekend and during office hours, the answering service or the receptionist got him to the phone immediately to answer my concerns. It is very comforting to have a doctor that obviously cares so much that his patients know he is always there for them.
