Why do some of our providers not have a star rating? This can be for several reasons, including:

  1. The provider has not yet received the minimum number of patient satisfaction surveys to be eligible for display.
  2. The provider practices in a specialty or office that does not use the specified surveys currently used for these ratings.

Dr. Tsipursky is very knowlegable and I trust him. He is very kind to his patients


great dr


Excellent doctor


I have seen Dr. Tsipursky for treatment for ... years and from the first visit to my last he is always the same. It is not comfortable getting shots in your eyes, but I trust him and his team that they know what is best for me.


I love Dr. Tsipursky and his staff. It's like going for a visit with friends, I've never had a bad experience in the eye department.




All doctors need to take a lesson from him!


Dr. T has a great sense of humor as well as superb medical knowledge. I like that!


All was great


He is a excellent doc. You felt like you were working as a team to fix the problem.


I realize the doctor was on call and therefore running behind. It did seem a little rushed. But the work was done


Good experience.


Best Doctor and staff


I drove (number) round-trip miles to see Dr. Tsipursky because I trust his judgment and expertise.
