Dr. Lipperd is kind and compassionate. He takes the time to listen to you and treats you with humility and care. So great to have a physician that displays the character of Christ in the way he conducts his practice.
Dr Lippers was amazing! Mondays are always busy at doctors offices and he still took time to get to know me. The office staff was also super friendly (which is rare!) also the male nurse who did my blood work was awesome! Im scared of needles and I barely could tell i was having work done. My husband is also making an appointment. I was the guinea pig to see if Dr Lipperd should be our new PC doctor.
Dr. Lipperd and his staff are the best! They always get me in and get me out. I like that fact he really listens to his patients and gives the best advice as well as understands each issue personally.
Dr Lipperd was very personable and professional! I enjoyed meeting him for the first time and will definitely be seeing him as my primary care physician.
Very attentive and always answers all my question. Everyone is always friendly and fun! Love this place!
Best personal physician I've ever had. Unimpeachable character and competence while also being very approachable, yet professional.
I love Dr. Lippards nurses, they are so sweet, I also like Dr. Lippard
Quick and easy to get in and seen.
First visit with Dr. Lipperd. All the staff were so friendly & helpful, & I really liked Dr.Lipperd. A pleasant experience!
Very professional and seemed to want to help me.
Dr. Lipperd is a very caring physician with a wonderful bedside manner. While I know he is a busy doctor, he acts as if he has all the time in the world for you when you're with him, answering questions, etc. I highly recommend Dr. Lipperd for anyone, male or female, looking for a fine, caring primary physician! In addition, his office staff is great!
Always professional and prompt.
He is very through and professional. He takes the time to listen
Great first visit.
Dr. Lippard is an awesome Dr. He listens, works with you to get everything right, and is just the friendliest Dr. I've been around!
Efficient, friendly, and listened to what I had to say.
Very professional and personable. Dr Lipped took time to address all my concerns and questions
Excellent service. The entire staff was friendly, professional, and quick. Dr. Lipperd was great!
All of my concerns were addressed and MD was attentive and very knowledgeable.
He's an incredible physician. So pleased I'm his patient. Entire staff is awesome.
The receptionist was very courteous and efficient, as well as the assistant taking my vitals. I first saw the nurse practitioner who was interning and she was friendly and quite thorough. However, that was her last day. I waited only a few minutes until the doctor came in and I was not disappointed. He was as attentive, knowledgable, and patiently listened to my rather long list of accrued complaints. I would highly recommend him and am glad I found him on the internet.
Love his nurses, he listens and gets to the problem loved him
Very professional staff and service
Dr. Lipperd is extremely personable, listens well and I believe will be a great partner in helping me to stay healthy!
Wonderful first appointment and I feel that I am in good hands.
I was very pleased from door to door.
Efficient and courteous. I came with three issues, and left with them resolved, or next steps to take. Great!
Nice staff, good experience!
Very friendly staff.... I wasn't in this office over an hour.... I recommend this primary care to anyone
Very professional, friendly and thorough!
Dr. Lipperd was very attentive and his office staff is very nice! I was in and out of his office in less than 30 minutes. Would highly recommend!
I went in for a physical since I haven't been to the doctor since high school, and I'm about to get married. He did the basics like listening to my heart and lungs, but not much more. It felt like he was just trying to get me out the door, but since I'm under 30, I'm sure he felt I was in good condition and didn't see any reason to be concerned except for my blood pressure being a little high. Overall the service was great and they were quick to get me in, and I will be using Dr. Lipperd again if anything were to come up!
I was very please on my first visit. i think i make a good choice.
I was well pleased with my first visit with Dr D. Lipperd offices from time I went in the door until I left out the door. It was other patients there when I got there so I thought I would have to wait but I was call right up and as I was being checked in other patients was being called to the back. It's was like I was there only patient. Time I set down I was called to the back seen two of Dr Lipperd assistance and he was right behind them. It was amazing how fast they get you in and out. Dr Lipperd have his program together and I'm looking forward to my next appointment.
I love this Dr. and his employess everyone could not be nicer, and they took very good care of me
Dr. Lipperd was both kind and very professional. I have just moved back to the area, and he made me glad that I chose him as my primary care doctor.
Very pleasant & able to do lab work then as opposed to having to make another trip
Professional, easy to talk with regarding personal health issues
Quick, friendly, knowledgeable, trustworthy
Great experience, this was my 1st visit just moved back into the state after 16 years away. Glad I picked Dr. Lipperd as my new primary Doctor
Awesome physician and very friendly staff!!!
I have been there twice now. Both times I was sent in within 10 minutes and seen within 15 minutes. Dr. Lipperd really seems to care about your health and how to fix it. The nurses are also wonderful, they are very kind and seem to remember you. I would recommend them to anyone.
Dr. Lipperd is very easy to talk to and will take good care of you. I was in and out in just a few minutes.
The staff was very friendly from the moment I walked in. I had a bit of a wait time (about 30 minutes) which was a little irritating since there wasn't anyone there, but once I got back everything went smoothly. Dr. Lipperd was great. He listened to my concerns and was not only open to discussing more conservative treatment plans, but recommended them. This is probably the best experience I've had with a doctor in years.
Everyone in the facility was friendly and welcoming. Dr. Lipperd answered all of my questions and made me feel very comfortable. The appointment took no time. I was in and out in about an hour.
-The ZocDoc online check in was a waste of time. There were three more sets paperwork once I got there. -I emailed the receptionist my prescriptions and vitamins before I saw the doctor. She didn't give it to the doctor until after my visit with him. -I had to ask for blood work via Quest Labs - a vial of blood. He was going to just prick my finger. -Asked for mild meds to help my symptoms of toenail fungus, acne, and/or hyperactivity with inability to stay on task. He didn't offer any prescriptions for any of those things. He referred me to other docs. What's up with that?! -Seems he's in business to treat your kids' colds and obvious symptoms. Adults mainly if they have obvious symptoms and kids too. -He may know some medicine, but he doesn't excel in leading the meeting. I was not impressed.
Dr. Lipperd was very helpful and professional.
Very nice, quick and knowledgeable. He is very inviting and makes you feel calm and comfortable.
Outstanding service. Very prompt!
Actually saw Dr. Lipperd at my scheduled time. Listened to what I had to say and offered quality advice. Excited to have him as a partner in my health.
Staff is very helpful, courteous and friendly. Dr. Lipperd is great.
I went from waiting room to exam room in less than 5 minutes. Waited in exam room for Dr. Lipperd for not even 2 minutes after the nurse took vitals. Office and nursing staff were very friendly. Dr. Lipperd was very professional and listened to me. I'm excited to finally find a primary care physician that is quick to get in and out of the office and provides great care.
Waste of time.

Although there was a slight Missunderstanding with the appointment, I was in no way disappointed that I kept the appt and met the Dr. And have a recheck with him in three months. I was impressed with him.
All around friendly staff and Dr. lipperd is top notch.
He knows me by name and recalls my detailed and specific medical history; this is such a treat in our current system of medical professionals. As a nurse in a completely different field of healthcare, I know when to spot a good one. I highly recommend this one.

Dr Lipperd came across as very personable and really seemed to care about the wellness of his patients. He seemed more interested in achieving health rather than immediately resorting to medication as a fix all, which exactly what I am looking for in a medical professional.
Dr. Lipperd was very thorough.
Great doctor. Only knock is the long wait time of 40 minutes on an early appointment. Not sure if this is standard since I do not go to the doctor much.
