John P. Lippelman, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My practice helps my patients gain control of their health and lead longer, healthier lives through the early detection of illness and personalized wellness plans. It is the close partnership between you and me that will help you reach your wellness goals.
My philosophy is simple. Since my practice is small, it allows me the time to work closely with my patients to develop unique approaches customized to their individual needs. My job is to educate, coach, support and guide my patients on a path to a healthier, happier life.
