WARNING!! #1 botox salesman of the year. If you like your doctors to be condescending, discourteous, and aggressively rude while pushing their own agenda on you given a 5 minute "discussion" this may be the doctor for you. Nothing beats feeling as though you are a waste of someones time when you're their 'patient' or in this case 'customer' and why not start with crass, self-important plastic surgeon who took a few too many credits in medical school and ended up in neurology. Great staff though.

As a sufferer of cluster headaches for 35 years, I have dealt with many neurologists who neither know of my condition nor how to treat it. Dr. Lipps has been a lifesaver. He knows clusters, he knows their impacts on our lives, and he knows how to treat them. He engages me in conversations about my options, always letting me know the benefits and challenges of each. He keeps up with current thinking on treating them, and offers new ideas if one treatment doesn't work. I highly recommend him.

A somewhat rude and curt doctor - abrasive personality. He makes you feel like you are wasting his time. Maybe he just wants to be on his yacht.
