Specialties

Dr. David M Lipkin has the following 2 specialties

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

World Class Med Doc

Dr. Lipkin has a thoughtful, knowledgeable, "common sense" based approach to the meds he prescribes, and possesses a calm, patient, reassuring bedside manner. Dr. Lipkin is flexible rather than arbitrary, tailoring our sessions to my needs and requirements while simultaneously maintaining his professional integrity. Further, his knowledge of pharmacology is extraordinary, and he communicates effectively and efficiently; he has returned my calls within 1-3 hours without fail. Dr. Lipkin is outstanding. Period.

This doctor is terrific for many reasons. I came to him after years with another doctor who retired. Dr. Lipkin figured out what I wanted/needed from him and was able to take care of me, check on me and make me feel cared for without a weekly in-depth appt. which is NOT what I wanted after years with the other doctor, He is kind, open, easy to talk to, honest, comfortable and I believe he would be a good doctor for a wide variety of people. I highly recommend him.

Outstanding Physician!

Dr. Lipkin actually had me wait ZERO minutes! Why no option for that vitals?? Probably because it never happens in our healthcare system! He spent an hour giving me his complete attention and had me feeling better before I even left his office. Plus he even followed up the next day (a Saturday no less). Highest Regards and extremely well recommended!

Together a long time

Dr. Lipkin is an excellent therapist. His ability to pick up on "things" is uncanny. If he cannot help you, he will refer you to some one else. There are a lot of good doctors, there are a lot of bad therapists.He is excellent; not cheap- but worth every minute. He will also bend over backward to help you.
