Verified Patient Reviews
The visit itself was great. He is funny, kind and easy going. Makes you feel really comfortable in the office and got me in and out super quickly. I did wait for a little while but its worth it if the visit was like the one I had.
Really nice doctor and staff .
The staff is friendly and professional. Same goes for Dr. Lipeles but he is also very personable.
Jamie was very efficient and pleasant as a OBGYN. He made me feel comfortable right away and made sure the appointment went by quickly.
Superb doctor. I came here for an emergency appointment but will now be switching my regular gyn care to Dr. Lipeles.
Dr Lipeles is an excellent OBGYN. He really listens! After being to a terrible OBGYN I found his bed side manner refreshing and reassuring. He is encouraging and positive yet still educates you on the risks. He is open and aware of ways to naturally treat things like BV and candida while pregnant. The office is lovely and the ultra sound room is like a minin cinema with a huge screen so you can really see your little one! Highly recommend him as an OBGYN.
He was a great doctor. Wait time is about an hour even though I was there on time.
Dr Lipeles is a great and his staff is very nice. He makes you feel comfortable, has a great personality and answers all of your questions. He came highly recommended from friends and I agree with the rave reviews.
Dr. Lipeles is very informative and communicative.
I LOVE dr.Lipeles. He is kind, intelligent, friendly, professional and takes his time with you.
Front desk was very knowledgeable about presumptive eligibility paperwork for Medi-Cal while we figure out our insurance situation (just moved to California). Also, in scheduling bloodwork they made sure that I could have all blood drawn in one visit instead of having to come for draws multiple times. Our time in the waiting room was very short and Dr. Lipeles was quick to see us as soon as we were pulled into the back office. He was efficient and friendly.
Dr Lipeles, Have excellent customer service skills. When speaking to you, he looks directly at you. Takes the time to explain everything he will be doing b4 and after!????
The office is just a farm....tons of people and children waiting takes forever. I booked an appointment for 1pm and was out at 3pm that should never happen.....
I love the doctor, but the office manager had a bit of an attitude. Maybe she was having a bad day. The practicioner/nurse in the back was a sweetheart though.
I've been seeing Dr. Lipeles for a few years now. He is hands down the best doctor I've ever seen. His staff is amazing too. The wait can be a little long, but it's worth it.
Dr Lipeless took his time to answer all my questions and concerns as always. Regardless how busy the office was.
Dr. Lipeles is awesome! Great sense of humor and is invested in what's ultimately best for the patient.
Dr Lipeles is such a friendly and kind hearted doctor. From our first impression he was energetic and caring. He listened to all of our concerns with a patient ear and he was so knowledgable when he was answering all our questions. We appreciate his open mindedness to our ways of thinking and cannot wait to build a strong patient doctor relationship.
He is great, awesome bedside manner, very knowledgable. Office waits are sometimes long and I have had issues getting in touch with the doctor for questions. I am pregnant and its important for someone to be available to answer simple questions.
I think he's a GREAT doctor. He's my Gyno now, but when I start thinking about having children, he's definitely the OB I will want by my side.
I just wanted to explain rating for the wait time in the office because honestly I hate leaving anything below 5 stars for Dr. Lipeles. There was a bit of a wait but that is expected with an OBGYN office because those types of patients typically have medical needs that come up unexpectedly. I know when I had my baby, I always took comfort in the fact that I knew Dr. Lipeles would be there for me when I needed him and I hope people understand that means there are the occasional days of longer wait times for appointments. The quality of care, professional knowledge and bedside manner cannot be beat. I cannot recommend Dr. Lipeles enough.
I love Dr. Lipeles. While he is super busy with all of his patients he always provides enough time for my questions, concerns etc. He is a wonderful Dr. Most importantly he listens to your wants and needs regarding a birth plan. I will continue to use him as my OBGYN moving forward and hope he delivers the rest of my children :)
I love him! Best Dr. ever. The wait was long but that's the least. He's nice and very down to earth.
He is absolutely the best OB-GYN I've ever had the pleasure of seeing. He is very understanding, and guided me through every step of the way. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs a new OB-GYN, in ALL of LA and the surrounding areas - he's worth the drive.
The office is clean, staff are very friendly and professional. Dr. Lipeles is a professional that always brings a little humor to every visit. I will definitely recommend him to family & friends!
My 75 minute wait was ridiculous and I was going to leave just as the doctor walked in. He didn't say anything at the time but later said he was delayed by a surgery he was helping out on and it put him behind. I think the nurse told him I inquired at the 55 minute mark that I wanted to reschedule so he sorta but not exactly apologized. These things happen but his staff should have helped mitigate the problem earlier because it's wrong to make a patient wait that long. As a first time patient -- it definitely sent the wrong message. The staff was another concern. They played loud music and shouted out to each other as they resided in various rooms I guess, and could be heard CLEARLY in the exam room. Music could lighten the mood but this was not that kind of experience. I think they turned it down later when I stuck my head out as one of the gals was searching for tunes. But the worst was overhearing a pregnant woman call in who was bleeding and the person who answered first said she should go to the hospital and then consulted with another nurse and then said she should come into the office and the doc will determine. A bit concerning she was advising without consulting but hopefully that was the right advice for the woman's sake. Then, the staff laughed and mocked her for calling in about bleeding. Yes, bleeding. They laughed and said, "what did she expect to come out -- candy? She's having a baby!" I don't think this is remotely professional and goodness, bleeding could mean something incredibly serious -- she did the right thing to ask. But rather got mocked behind her back by her doctor (technically not the doc but from the larger picture, yes). Will that happen to me?? What if I call in with a medical question or emergency??? Will I be mocked? Will I be scared to call because the staff treats you like you are an idiot for calling? The doc was great but I'm on the fence because I worry about the other people who make up this practice. I'm also not accustomed to having a nurse stare during the pap smear. I know they have to be present with a male doc but in my experience, they are in the room but respect your privacy. This was the opposite. So, you be the judge if this works for you. Doc seriously seemed great and that is most important, of course. But I am looking for a great doc ... in a professional practice ... and I got 50% of what I am looking for. Debating on returning. And I know this will somehow not turn out anonymous so I can only imagine my treatment if I return ... Why is it so hard to get both a great doc and great staff??? I wish the staff didn't matter but you interface with them no matter what -- and sometimes in less than a private way so you really want to feel they are professional, no??
First visit with him and he was great! Super nice and very informative.
I felt like I had finally found the doctor I had been looking for.
He's great. Patient, answered all my questions. Was very frank, great sense of humor.
The doctor himself is lovely.
It was really great. The wait was really long, I must say (1.5 before I saw the doctor, about 1 before I was taken back) but he and his staff were very friendly and helpful!
Great energy, information, bedside manner. As a young male doctor with no children, I was very surprised and encouraged by his passion and knowledge. Looking forward to having him as my OB/GYN going forward.
He was very polite, personable and approachable. I felt very comfortable with Dr. Lipeles.
