Dr. Sipkins is dedicated to compassionate and comprehensive primary care. He is experienced at management of acute illness, coordination of care with specialists as needed, and directing patients through the complexities of preventive medicine; all provided in an up-to-date academic setting. Early detection of disease at regular screening examinations is emphasized.

Quality care starts with having the time to listen.  In order to provide his patients with the time and attention he feels is optimal, Dr. Sipkins opted out of the Medicare program in 2011, and will opt-out of all other health insurance networks effective 3/15/2016.  After that time, he will see patients on an individual contractual basis for an annual fee.  Our office staff will be happy to provide further information upon your phone call.
