As always, i sense I am in the care of not only a highly skilled practitioner but also a highly sensitive caregiver. Another step forward as I enter my senior years and I'm so glad to have Dr. Lipperd as part of the "team" that cares for me.

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 wasawesome! 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.

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 afew 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.

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 hewas 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!
