    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!

    in Delran, NJ |
    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.
