Dear Dr. Lipani,

We cannot express enough all our gratitude to you. All the hard work you put into getting T’s surgery done from the office visits to the great care at the ER and hospital stay. We are blessed to have your talent and expertise and knowledge.

Thank you with very much gratitude T and KC.

February, 2021

Dear Dr. Lipani,

There are no words to express my gratitude for all you have done.

Thank you,


December, 2021

Dear Dr. Lipani,

Our initial meeting with you gave us the impression you were a doctor who was passionate about his work and truly cared for his patients. We weren’t wrong. We admire your work ethic and expertise. You are the epitome of what all people in the medical field should be! Thank you for always been just a phone call away!

Best wishes always,

KJ and KJ

Dear Dr. Lipani,

I had the facet joint injection and I am thrilled to say that I am pain-free since then! Thank you again for finding the source of this!!! I can’t believe I went a year with no one else taking the time or having the curiosity to pursue why I was still not feeling right.



September, 2021

Dear Dr. Lipani,

Thank you so much for looking at my MRI and talking with me today. I have a direction now which hopefully will lead to getting this leg and glute pain resolved and deeply appreciate your help. I know you are a real gift to your patients.

All the best,


February, 2021

Dear Kathy and Dr. Lipani,

I wanted to say thank you for helping me so much over the last weeks.  I have been through a lot of medical problems in my 31 years, and no doctor has made me feel as heard as you have.  You have truly been a blessing to me and have given me some hope that my lower back pain can be resolved.

Thank you again.


October 27th, 2020

Dear Dr. Lipani and Kathy,

I am forever grateful to you for giving me my life back. From roasting a pig to decorating our house, to staying out all night, any night that is clear skies with my telescopes to riding my bike (I’m up to 46 miles), to dance lessons with my wife and volunteering at Joint Bases McGuire/Dix/Lakehurst with the USO….I’m doing all of these things that I had given up because of those headaches. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!

With love, gratitude and tears of joy,

October 9th, 2020

Dear Dr. Lipani,

I’m not sure how many patients communicate to you on the anniversary of their surgery. A year ago today I was scared beyond words of the surgery you were going to perform on me but in the back of my mind I knew you were the best. Our first meeting in September put me at ease by your kindness and calming mannerism and I knew you were the Dr. who would perform my surgery and repair my body. As I wrote this rough draft with my left hand I took a moment and reflected back how I couldn’t even hold a pen and tears filled up. You truly saved my life. Yesterday my friend who pretty much shared my nightmare of deterioration commented how well I’m walking and I mentioned that October 9th is one year.

Best Regards Always,

July 24th, 2020

Good morning. I’m I am completely speechless on how do you guys treat people like people and not numbers I so much appreciate the time and effort you guys took to look at my case when you didn’t have to (but you guys did) and I don’t know how to say THANK YOU so much for treating people like people and like numbers. It’s unfortunate how the healthcare system is what it is today but the feeling knowing there is a doctor who actually does care is a one in 1 billion and you guys are one in 1 IN A BILLION THANK YOU!

June 11th, 2020

Hi Dr. Lipani and Kathy –

wanted to say hello, hope you and your families are all safe and things are as good as they can be under these circumstances. Fortunately, we have all been well, and very happy that we moved to PA, our state is faring much better than others in terms of the virus…

How have you been?

As for me, the recovery from the second back surgery in Oct 2018 has healed well. Unfortunately, I had to have my (“good”) hip replaced/reconstructed this past January, it was also dysplastic; I went to same surgeon at HSS in NYC (Dr Thomas Sculco Sr.) who did the other hip 14 years ago.. thankfully I heal well!

What a blessing to live WITHOUT PAIN – I had forgotten how wonderful that feels, and I thank God for that which most take for granted.

I think of you often, and all that you did to “put me back together” again!

Kindest regards,

September 27th, 2019

Hi Dr. Lipani,

I hope you’re well and had a great summer. I came across an article on this year’s NJ Top Doctors and wasn’t surprised to see you on the list again! A much deserved accomplishment. I’m thankful to you every day for fixing me up as many times as you have, its been life changing. As always, I very much appreciate all that you’ve done. Don’t tell my other doctors, you’re my favorite of them all.

All the best,

June 21st, 2019

Dear Kathy,

You saved my life!! I was on the ledge and your compassion and care pulled me off. I cannot fully express how you and Dr. Lipani SAVED my life! I will forever be grateful. – E

June 13th, 2019

Dear Kathleen and Dr. Lipani,
It is with great thanks again to both for your excellence in taking care of your patients had a moment’s notice. We will never be able to say thank you enough. My husband Tom is on the road back to recovery thanks to you both. We will forever be grateful. Love, GC

March 2019

“Dear Kathy, Thank you for everything you have done for us both! You always go the “extra mile”! You are a special person. Love CS

March 2019

Dear Dr. Lipani, No words can express our sincere gratitude for all you have done for both of us.  You are “one of a kind”!  It’s difficult to find a doctor that is dedicated and as caring as you are.  You made us feel like family from day one!  Thank you for guiding us along our journey.

Love SC

January 2019

Dear Kathy,

You are both very compassionate and that’s everything to me. Dr. Lipani is very approachable and I can talk to him like one of the boys.

He’s a brilliant surgeon and there will never be another doctor to help me with these problems.

Thank you both.


December 2018

Dear Dr. Lipani,

You have no idea how much you have changed my life. I don’t want to sound dramatic or cliche, but you’ve literally given me my life back. Several times. I know you’re just doing your job, but it’s made a world of difference to me. There’s no doubt that 2018 was a bad year for me medically, but for the first time in a long time, I feel normal! Its been so long of not feeling my best that its amazing to be in no pain and have energy again. While the healing process was long and for a time my headaches were worse, since I’ve recovered, my horrid headaches have drastically reduced. That alone has been amazing. I will be forever grateful to you for fixing me!


November 2018

Dear Kathleen and Dr. Lipani,

Thank you so much for taking the time to contact me regarding my medical issue. I appreciate you both more than you will ever know. You make the world a better place for all those whose lives you touch.



September 2018

Many thanks for an excellent consultation and immediate review of my new x-rays today. Kate and I were most impressed by your obvious competence and candor. It is comforting to know that experts such as you are available to us.


January, 2018

Hi Kathy,

I cannot begin to express my gratitude for all that you have done for me, and my family. You and Dr. Lipani entered our lives at the best possible moment. You are both so wonderful, and it was such a relief to know that I was in good hands. It is rare for a patient to find a medical team that goes above and beyond for them like you two have done for me. Thank you so much for the letter – and for everything else.


January, 2018

Dr. Lipani:

Thank you so very much for taking the time and effort to write me and provide me with such helpful information. That was extremely thoughtful of you. The promptness of your response has also elicited a real sense of hope and direction for me. In addition to the fact that you have worldwide acknowledgement as a pundit scholar and surgeon, I can easily surmise that you are a true humanitarian.  Again, I deeply appreciate your guidance and sincere concern.

Sincerely yours,

November 15th, 2017

Dr. Lipani and Ms. Bonner:

I wanted to officially thank you for giving me my life back. Since as far back as I can remember, I have been dealing with back issues. The worst started in 2015, sending me down a trail of doctors, medications, and procedures. All of these things would fail and my life was beginning to fall apart. I had to consider retiring from law enforcement, just over a year after becoming a Sergeant.

I was lucky to have chosen to call your office, because you quickly diagnosed and handled the problem. After my surgery, I felt immediate relief. I was finally able to hold my newborn daughter without the fear of pain threatening my stability. I returned to work and haven’t looked back.

Even after the surgery, you’ve continued to fight for me. You have been handling the insurance companies and protecting me from financial hardship.

I have included 2018 Fraternal Order of Police courtesy cards for each of you. While I can never fully repay what you have done for me, I hope this gesture helps.

Dear Dr. Lipani,

Oh how you changed my life. I can’t put it into words….but my heart knows that I am indebted to you. I do know now that every day is a gift.

The hike lasted a few hours (8.7 miles) I will remember how special you made me feel knowing that there are people so generous and thoughtful is a gift in itself.



May, 2014


Its so refreshing to hear a medical professional say that. I have just dealt with so many doctors who didn’t care at all that this office was my last call before I gave up.

My mother and husband wouldn’t have given up, but I was ready to. I’m so happy I found you guys.

Warmest Regards,


March, 2014

Hi Kathy,

I must say you have been AMAZING!!!

Thank you so much to both you and Dr. Lipani. I thought doctors and nurses like the two of you were a thing of the past. Trust me, you are a rare find and a treasure.

I will call to arrange the date for my MRI now that you got the insurance approval. I will let you know when I am scheduled and will call to make a follow up appointment.

Thank you again for everything! 🙂


May 30th, 2013

After suffering for 6 months, and PT doing nothing. I decided I would pursue surgery… I found Dr. Lipani after much online research.

I traveled over an hour to get to his office and am sooo glad I did.

I cannot say enough about Kathleen Bonner RN, BSN Practice Administrator and Clinical Manager. Kathy got back to me right away…answered all my questions and worked with me on appt. scheduling.

Dr. Lipani is great. He sat with me for at least an hour and showed me my films. Explained any and all I needed to know. He also expedited my surgery so I would be able to enjoy the vacation I had booked the year before.

I know Kathy had to do a lot of wheeling and dealing to do that and I appreciated it all. It left me a recovery window of 6 weeks…which was PERFECT!!

My surgery went well….had 2 follow up visits with Dr. Lipani…and I feel wonderful. To be out of that god awful pain is a blessing…and I can’t praise him enough.

Kathy was available 24/7…and helped me afterwards with insurance problems too!! I can’t say enough 🙂


November 13, 2013

Dear Kathy

You are a gem!

I can’t believe the caring coming from you and Dr. Lipani… friends are in total shock that such an office exists!
Thanks for everything!

Your pal,

Feb 5th, 2013

Dear Dr. Lipani and Kathy,

My sister lived in chronic neck pain for years causing limitations in everything she did in life; she couldn’t even sit for longer than 30 minutes without pain. Finally, she agreed to see a doctor. We are not medical people but we knew enough to know my sisters complex spinal surgery would be left only in the hands of a highly trained, experienced neurosurgeon. That was non-negotiable. We researched board certified fellowship trained neurosurgeons and that led us to you!

What a wonderful physician, I cannot say enough about your exceptional skills and genuine care and compassion.
I was by my sister’s side for most of her ordeal, and as you know, I had much contact with you and your office staff. After your detailed explanation of my sister’s diagnosis, followed by her spinal surgery my sister is now pain free and living a normal life!

Your office staff are courteous, highly professional and, most importantly, genuinely compassionate. They might do this every day, but their patients don’t and they recognize that.

What wonderful bedside manner you have along with your clinical manager Kathleen… Having both yourself and Kathleen available to us from the time of my sister’s initial phone call to schedule her consultation through her post-operative course made such an incredible difference. 24/7 availability and your surgeons cell phone number……….who knew that was possible?!! You were always there to answer any question, and made my sister and all of us feel at ease.

I’m so thankful she chose you Dr. Lipani.

Thank you for fixing up my sister! You changed her life, all for the better!


Dear Dr. Lipani,

I just wanted to say thank you for all you have done for my husband and me. Your excellent care, patience, and understanding. Most of all, thank you for never giving up on us and for your determination to find a way to always make us smile and give us hope.”

With gratitude,

Dear Dr. Lipani,

Thank you so much for taking such great care of my mother. She is back home and doing great! Thank you for everything!”


Dear Dr. Lipani,

After I was shot in the head and everyone thought I wouldn’t make it through the night. But you took the bullet out from my head and gave me a second chance! You are my guardian angel and you saved my life. Then you save my life a second time when you fixed me up again!

God bless you and thank you for giving me my life back…twice!

Your friend,

Dear Dr. Lipani & Kathy

Thank you so much for helping me physically and mentally during pre and post surgery. I am very impressed with your professional and personal behavior towards me in the due process. Wishing you all the best!


Dear Dr. Lipani,

Thank you so much for all you have done for us. We will never give so thank you for not giving up on us!


Dear Dr. Lipani,

Words cannot express how grateful we are for everything you have done. To quote my husband, “Thank you for saving my life so many times!” You are the reason he is alive today. Thank you for always taking care of him. Thank you for never giving up. Thank you for giving us hope. We are truly blessed to have met you.

Much love,

Dear Dr. Lipani,

It was a pleasure to meet you last week and to be able to thank you in person for saving my son’s life. You represent the very best of the medical profession. You are truly an angel and our family will be forever grateful. May god bless you always.


Dear Dr. Lipani,

When my mother was diagnosed with a pituitary tumor I was horrified. My mother’s physician, a local endocrinologist, had suggested that she undergo surgery for treatment. Understandably my mother was very upset with her diagnosis. I wondered whether she was a candidate for Cyberknife and was able to get an appointment with you to see my mother within a few days. My mother was very impressed with you and said you were thorough, caring and explained your recommendations clearly. Per my mother’s request you called me to discuss her case. I am extremely busy at work so it took you three calls to contact me. You took your time and explained my mother’s options so we could make an informed decision for her care.

Working in the health field I have observed few physicians go over and above to involve the family in a patient’s care as requested by the patient. Thank you Dr. Lipani for helping ease my mother’s mind and providing her the resources she needed to make an informed decision.


Dear Dr. Lipani,

When we were told that our son Josh needed brain surgery to relieve the pressure on his brain we were graced with the skill and expertise of a truly gifted surgeon. At the time, we did not realize we were in the best of hands possible, as we had never required your expertise before. We know now how fortunate we were to have you perform our son’s surgery that day. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for your gift of a steady hand and a compassionate heart and for playing an intricate roll in saving my son Josh’s life. As for Kathleen, your clinical manager, if I had a dime for every phone call she made to us that first month, we would be a very very wealthy family. Her skills are impeccable, and her heart is as true as they come and still to this day I know that I can call her at the drop of a hat and get a response within minutes. Thank you so much for all you’ve done for my son Josh and our entire family. May god bless you always.
