At my appointed time, was told it will be a 15 minute wait. After one hour of waiting, I find out there are two people now ahead of me and they don’t know when you’ll be seen. Your time means nothing to this doctor and she could care less. The office will get your copay first then won’t see you

I am so happy to have found her as a doctor. She correctly diagnosed my problem. The bum is an embarrassing place and it’s great to have a female doctor too.

Following surgery I realized I should have seen Dr. Lipof years ago. Always healthy, I was reluctant to go forward with the procedure fearing everything from being hospitalized, to anesthesia, to being operated on. It was Dr. Lipof's confidence that gave me no reason to doubt that this was the way to go. Everything went swimmingly! Lahey Beverly Hospital was incredible and the staff holds her in high regard. Dr. Lipof exceeded my expectations and has given me my life back!

Christine in Ipswich – Jul 10, 2018
Excellent doctor, awesome staff. I would feel confidant recommending Dr. Lipof to anyone needing care in her field of practice. She is very personable and takes the time to thoroughly explain, in terms you can understand, your condition and the recommended course of treatment. Made me feel completely at ease before going into the OR and also afterward. Follow up care is also outstanding.

Jimi mac in Peabody, MA – Jan 28, 2017
Dr. Lipo is a very caring surgeon. Every visit I've had with her, even in the hospital post-op, she pulls up a chair next to you, sits, listens and reassures. She explained everything about my condition in detail, presented clear reasons for the standard of care while letting me know all my options. She calls me herself with results almost as soon as she gets them. She keeps in constant contact with my other doctors to update them on my status. I think she is an outstanding doctor.
