  “I have known Dr. Kipper for over 25 years.  He is one of the most compassionate, caring and competent physicians I have known since I began my pain mangement practice in California in the late 1970s.  Dr. Kipper is an extraordinary diagnostician.  This is due to the fact that he is willing to spend the necessary time with his patients to determine appropriate working diagnoses and treatment plans.  This is especially important with chronic pain patients who present with a multitude of phsycological symptoms that exacerbate their medical conditions....I have the utmost respect for Dr. Kipper and his competence as an internist.  I have referred many patients to him because I trust him.  I referred family memebers in addition to my patients requiring an interneist.  I would trust him with my own health care.  I cannot think of a more significant endorsement.”

“...I give Dr. Kipper the highest praise in [professional integrity and knowledge of addiction].  Unfortunately, many physicians have patients with addiction yet they are not aware of it or are unwilling to treat it.  Dr. Kipper is not this kind and he takes on some of the more difficult cases....On no occasion have I ever questioned his ethics, ability, knowledge or compassion.  He has always been the most enjoyable person to work wth and have found him to be extremely knowledgeable.  He also possesses a great degree of empathy and compassion for this patients as well as a family....I stand behind Dr. Kipper and support of him as a competent, qualified, compassionate and knowledgeable physician.”

“In todays world of medicine giving each patient suffient attention and compassion gets easily lost amongst the worlds of insurance-driven medical care.  Dr. Kipper, however, is a rare exception.  He treats each patient with a standard of care that we all knew in the “old days”, when a doctor could be more concerned with the welfare of the patient then their own liability.”

“Dr. Kipper’s clinical acumen as well as his sensitivity towards his patients needs is well known throughout the community and, as a result, a number of different patients have sought his clinical expertise and care for their own medical issues...I am very pleased to have the opportunity to work with Dr. Kipper....”

“In the last 20 years that I have worked with Dr. Kipper we have shared in the care of many patients, some with straightforward diagnostic and surgical problems, as well as others with extremely complex and critical illnesses requiring lenthy hospitalizations.  This series of professional interactions has provided an opportunity to observe Dr. Kipper’s care of his patients, and for me to reach certain conclusions about that care...In a word, Dr. Kipper’s care has been exemplary.  I have found him to be extremely conscientious, attentive, and available to his patients and his colleagues.  His concern for the welfare of his patients has been of the highest level, always the first priority, and his integrity has never been in dout.  His patients have sensed his devotion to them, and, in return, their loyalty to him has been steadfast.”

“I am involved in the practice of cardiovascular diseases, and I was frequently asked to consult on Dr. Kipper’s patients either in the office or in the hosptial setting.   His care of the patient prior to my evaluation was generally excellent and the reasons for the referral were generally fully indicated.  The patients were clearly cared for quite well by Dr. David Kipper, and they exhibited considerable trust in his medical judgement.  I share that trust in his judgment, given my personal observations of their care both prior to as well as subsequent to my involvement in the medical care....my observation of Dr. David Kipper’s medical care over the past 27 years allows me to conclude that he is an excellent physician, who exhibits a combination of patient concern and high quality medical care.”

I have known Dr. Kipper and been his patient for over twenty years....He is a gifted doctor.  He is an extraordinarily dedicated doctor.  I have never been in his company when he was not responding to a patient’s call no matter what the hour and no matter what the demands of his private life at that moment.  His compassion creates an accessibility, which colors the lives of all he treats.  If you are his patient and you feel you need him you will reach him; you will be talked to, seen, treated, helped nurted and will never have to feel alone or isolated as you take on your illness.  Ask any of his patients.  I have spent a good deal of time among doctors as research for two films which dealt with different illnesses; “Terms of Endearment,” and “As Good as it Gets.”  This involved months of conferences, time at hospitals, etc.  During this time I never met a more collegial doctor than David Kipper.”
