Alan Lipkin, MD

“I enjoy working with patients at every stage of life…pediatric, adolescent, adult, and geriatric.”

 

Dr. Lipkin chose the field of otolaryngology because it allows him to concentrate on and gain experience in a confined area of the body:  ear, nose, and throat.  Practicing in Denver for over 25 years has allowed him the rare experience of providing personalized care throughout the lives of his patients.  Dr. Lipkin feels that it is both an honor and a privilege to be a health advocate for his patients and to assist them while overcoming medical challenges and enhancing  the quality of their lives.
