About

Bio

Hello. Im Dr. Lipkin and it would be my pleasure to meet with you and help you with your medical concerns. My goal is to help you feel better if you are ill, and also to provide you with the information you need to stay well and make the best medical decisions for your health. I grew up in New York and received my BA cum laude from Adelphi University, Garden City, New York and my MD from Howard University College of Medicine, Washington D.C., where I was named to the Alpha Omega Alpha medical honor society. My Internship was done at Temple University Hospital, Philadelphia and my Internal Medicine Residency was completed at Bryn Mawr Hospital, Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania. I am Board Certified in Internal Medicine. When I’m not online helping patients, or reading the latest Medical Journals, you can find me spending time with my family, raising Koi fish and enjoying nature.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
