Dr. Lipchick is an excellent pulmonologist - I feel fortunate to have him as one of the specialists on my care team
Dec. 21, 2019
There is no better care than I have received from Dr. Lipchik. He came highly recommended and the care I have received validates those recommendations.

Would have like a summary at the end of the visit. What may be going on with me. Labs were ordered to understand the issue better, would have like ideas of what they think is going on. Arrived at 1:45 as scheduled. Waited until 2:30 to see Doctor.

The care by Dr. Lipchik and staff is always excellent and compassionate. This visit was involved with recent serious medical problems and because of the care I received, even more is now diagnosed and treated. I am immensely grateful.

Doctor Lipchick is an excellent doctor. He treats me with integrity and listens to me. I really am so happy that he is helping me with my current health issue. I feel more secure with his knowledge and assistance in helping me to deal with this issue. With regard to the question of ordering tests in the past months, he requested tests at this appointment so I counted that.

His listening skills are awesome!
June 27, 2019
Waited over an hour and the initial questions from the doctor were irrelevant. Did not seem to take my concerns seriously. An hour+ wait for a 10 minute discussion and I imagine the billing won't reflect that.
June 26, 2019
First visit with this doctor. The time spent in conversation was informative and comfortable. Hopefully this will continue in my future appointments. Very satisfied. I don't generally fill out surveys unless I am very satisfied.

Dr. Lipchik is an amazing doctor. He has been helpful and encouraging, especially to my sister who also has Alpha. It is his manner that is worth so much to those of us who visit him.
March 22, 2019
Dr. Lipchik is always there for me when I need him. I am very happy with him being my pulmonary doctor ! At this time, I would like to bring up a discrepancy I think there is with the pulmonary department's weight scale. I feel it is OFF by 10-11 pounds, being higher. Dr. Lipchik even questioned the weight that was shown for me. If this should be the case, then other patients are shown an incorrect weight. When I mentioned it once again to a staff member, it seemed it went in one ear and then out the other. I would like for the weight scale to be checked for accuracy, not only for myself for for other patients. Thank you.

I feel very confident with Dr. Lipchik. He is courteous and compassionate as well as clear and concise with his information.
Feb. 26, 2019
Doctor Lipchick answers all of my questions and listens very well. He gives me pertinent and important information. One thing I would recommend for the meeting room with the patient is to turn the bench to face the nurse/doctor. The nurse/doctor face the computer which is in the corner. The bench that the patient sits on faces in a different direction. I have fused vertebrae in my neck so it was difficult to look at/communicate clearly with the nurse/doctor. The nurse needed to repeat questions a number of times because I didn't know what she had asked me.
