    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.

Doctor Lippman has been my family's doctor for the past thirteen years. She has consistently provided us with effective treatment and helpful insight. I feel that she carefully listens to me and truly cares about my well-being. It is very helpful that she makes house calls. I would highly recommend Dr. Lippmann's ser

50/50 Feeling

I have read all of the comments and say this. I have 2 family members (one no longer) that sees this doctor and can say YES she has saved their lives. But i have and always will be a lil uncomfortable with the way her office works and The Doctor herself makes me still very uncomfortable. For my spouse she has giving him everything under the sun. He became every dependent on the new strip (under the tough) drug. This and other drugs she gave him caused him to be very paranoid and nerviest. Not once was he sent to see a therapist for his depression when the medication states you may have. He has reported to her many of times (I was there at many appts). I myself had to do so for him. I believe someone needs to look into this place (maybe as a CX) and see how this works. My spouse has PPO insurance and has received other bills for her service being that this was paid many months before by the insurance copy. My mother has heart issues and was given medication that would send her heart racing. Now yes they both are no longer using the drug that got them there. But they are now dependent on a new narcotic. Pretty scary I must say. Front room staff is nothing close from being professional; they make you feel like an addict. I felt sorry for my husband as they demanded money as they were the pimp of this place. I dont know names, but it wouldnt matter as they were all rude. They are lost on appts, who you are and ETC...... The hook up with Coover is a joke!!!! You can go other places!!! Rite Aid being one!!! They offer it. People there are many doctors in Bellflower, Downey that provide the same service but in a more professional way. Sorry we all have had to experience this, but this is what happens when you are in need of help.

Caring, Compassionate Doc- one of the best I've ever had

My experience with Doctors is that they generally don't take the time to actually "listen to their patient". If an ailment is "out of the box" and therefore requires much more time to consider how and what to do most doctors aren't prepared to engage in that lengthy process. Instead, they simply follow the established protocols within certain peramaters. Unfortunately, I am a Crohns patient and as a result have been sorely dissappointed by numerous doctors thru the years. This is not the case with Doctor Lippman! She takes the extra time to listen to the ongoing issues, refers to appropriate specialists and then follows up with me and the other doctor to insure that the best possible care can be given. She has been my Primary Care Physician for 8 years and will remain so. just was transferred to the S.F. Bay Area but will continue to fly down to see Dr. Lippman!One word of advice regarding the negative comments- in her desire to compassionately assist people from all walks of life Dr. Lippman has made the mistake to accept some clientelle that are frankly very unstable driven with improper motives. In the past year she has seen how her compassion has been abused by these patients. Consequently, she has eliminated the "flakes" from her practice which has eliminated much of the confusion and insanity which others mention in their reviews. The rap on the front office staff is simply the result of dealing with some of the clientelle who unfortunately needed to be eliminate!d from the practice
