Patient Comments (1)
in Philadelphia, PA |
I have been seeing Dr. Lipshutz for about two years now. He is, by far, the sweetest and most compassionate doctor I have ever seen (and I've seen hundreds in my lifetime). He's a great listener who genuinely cares about you and truly WANTS to help you get better. He will do everything within his power to help you. I've never had a grandpa, but if I did, I would want him to be just like Dr. Lipshutz!!!
