Dissappointed

This is based on my second of two visits to him. Dr Lipp looked at his watch as soon as he came into the office. He rushed through our appointment and appeared insensitive and completely disconnected to me as a patient. I was extremely surprised and dissappointed. Not sure if I'll be returning to him. and disappointed. Not sure if

Very Satisfied Patient

For 10 weeks and 3 doctor visits no one could explain to me why my back hurt. All I got where made up diagnosis, prescriptions for therapy and Tylenol!! Dr Lipp was the first doctor to sit down and take the time and figure out why I was in pain and not look for an easy diagnosis and treatment plan. He went over all my studies and explained everything to me in a way that I can understand. He then set treatment options for me, electing conservative ones. I ended up having 2 injections in my back. Although a little scary and a little uncomfortable, I am glad he did them. I have the utmost confidence in him. Now I am back to my normal life. Hopefully, I never have to go back to Dr Lipp, but if my back pain returns or some one else I know has back pain, he is the only doctor I will go to or reccome d

Honest, but...

Had a total of 2 visits with Dr Lipp. The first visit he looked at my mri records and did a remarkedly brief physical exam. At the second visit he basically just told me he didnt feel any interventions he could offer would provide any lasting benefit and he wasnt going to "dope me up" with medications. Told me to just live with the pain, and adjust my life around it. Needless to say, I left feeling very hopeless, and I actually cried after I left the office. I did not want to be given false hope, but I thought a pain specialist is supposed to help form a plan to help deal with your chronic pain. He has no empathy and really does not listen to what you say, as he has aready made up his mind before he walks in the exam room.
