As a result of the compassionate care we deliver, we develop lasting relationships with our patients. Many times we hear from our patients about how foot and ankle surgeons Dr. Marc Lipton and Dr. Roberto Brandão and the staff at Orthopaedic Associates of Central Maryland (OACM) have helped them. For those of you we hear from, we thank you for passing along your kind words. Here are some of our favorites:
“Five years ago, Dr. Lipton was my second opinion doctor – I selected him as my surgeon. This year for surgery on my other foot, he was my first and only opinion and podiatrist. He has a wonderful bedside manner in the office and hospital. He takes the time to answer questions and explain procedures and next steps, gives and considers alternatives, and consistently makes me feel at ease. For any future foot/ankle/tendon issues, I will without hesitation contact Dr. Lipton. I strongly recommend Dr. Lipton to anyone needing his specialty and insist they ask questions and listen to what he has to say.” – Anonymous
“Dr. Lipton's friendly disposition put me and my pain at ease. He took the time to know me and learn my history ... from there, he tried to figure out my problem and started to help prevent further damage and future injuries. He fully explained our course of action (meds, surgery, PT, etc.) and answered all of my questions.
He celebrated the small milestones that I made in PT throughout my time there and worked with me on deciding a suitable time to return to work and other normal functions. His secretary, Lisa, was accommodating and helpful in scheduling appointments and getting necessary paperwork for my employer taken care of.
The entire staff of OACM is a joy to work with and I recommend them to anyone who has orthopedic issues or concerns.” – Desinna M. Jackson

“Very pleasant. Confident and professional with an air of genuine caring. A+++” – Kevin E. via Zocdoc
“I didn't feel rushed, he answered all of my questions and addressed my concerns. I would definitely recommend him to someone else.” – Jeannette S. via Zocdoc
"I would like to commend one of your physicians: Dr. Marc Lipton. I have been seeing Dr. Lipton for several years now. His patience is astounding because I'm such a difficult case. I think that Dr. Lipton is an excellent physician and he really works with me and with my feet, which can be quite challenging. He is instrumental in keeping my feet healthy. Please commend him accordingly, he is a wonderful person and physician." - Pat P.
"Dr. Brandão is by far one of the best doctors I have seen, and I highly recommend him for any foot/ankle issues. After seeing 4 other doctors over a course of 5 years with no relief, I made an appointment with Dr. Brandão, even though his office is three hours away. I was extremely impressed by his professionalism. He gave me several options for treatment and was proactive when I opted to have surgery on my foot. His care and precision have given me excellent results. In just four weeks I am feeling better than I have in years. Dr. Brandão's knowledge, bedside manner, and quality of care far exceeded my expectations. He and his Medical Assistant Abby were wonderful and able to answer any questions I had. Everyone in the office is friendly and welcoming." - Erin G., via Facebook
"I had issues with my ankle/heel for over a year before I went to OACM for help. I saw Dr. Roberto Brandão and after trying some alternatives to surgery, it was decided that surgery was the best way to go. I couldn't have asked for a better doctor! Dr. Brandão explained everything in detail for pre-op and what I needed to do post-op. I had a partial tear in my achilles and a bone spur that Dr. B both repaired and removed. Being in my 60's I was worried, but after surgery and going through the PT, my foot is completely back to normal. I appreciate Dr. B and all the folks at OACM who are all wonderful! Thanks so much!" - Shari M., via Facebook
