Meet Dr. Adam Lipkin

Meet Dr. Adam Lipkin


(bright music) My name is Dr. Adam Lipkin. I’m a general surgeon. I’m a board-certified general surgeon. I’ve been practicing
in Florida since 2001, and I’ve been here in Englewood
for the past 10 years. General surgery is a pretty broad field, but it involves surgery
mostly in the abdomen, and so some common procedures
that a general surgeon performs are removal of the
gall bladder, hernia repair, removal of parts of the
intestine, removal of the appendix for appendicitis. But we also operate elsewhere in the body. Thyroid surgery, breast
surgery, lumps and bumps. I first decided to go into
medicine because I knew I had an aptitude for
science, but I also knew that I wanted to feel
like what I was doing was very important, and I couldn’t imagine anything more important than
helping people through illness. Most rewarding part is seeing
someone who is not doing well, and getting to see him after
surgery like it never happened. When I first stepped foot in Englewood I knew there was something different. And it was just a personal connection, and I could see it with the
nurses and the patients, I could see it with the other
doctors and their patients. I think patients just get
a different experience here because it’s still a community hospital. A lot of hospitals’ patients
are treated like they’re coming through a factory, like
they’re on an assembly line, but I think that experience
is still different here at Englewood.
