November 13, 2016

dr Pippitt always provides excellent care. her instincts and training diagnosis problems sometimes not necessarily evident. Her follow through is life saving.

November 06, 2016

Dr. Pippitt is fantastic. I trust her completely and would recommend her to all of my friends. She goes above and beyond in helping me with my health care. I appreciate everything she does. She is kind, caring and knows just what to say.

October 29, 2016

Dr Pippitt is a ROCK STAR! There are those lucky few who count themselves as Dr Pippitt's patients (we prefer the term 'Groupies') and then there are those who know only the grey muzak world of other providers. She has insight, kindness, wit, empathy, strength, wisdom beyond her years, and I truly believe should could make a blind man see and the dead rise again. God Bless the Mighty Pippitt!

September 03, 2016

I love Dr. Pippitt! She is such an incredible asset in my support system, and always makes sure that I am fully taken care of. I would not be as healthy and happy as I am if not for Dr. Pippitt!

September 01, 2016

I felt like my issue was not a big concern to her so it should not be a concern to me

August 25, 2016

Dr. Pippitt is kind, knowledgeable, thorough and it is always a great experience!

August 23, 2016

Doctor P was fantastic. She listen to my concerns, and came up with a great plan of care. I honestly appreciate her so much! She is THE BEST!.

August 16, 2016

very caring even called thought about me and added more testing to ade in problem.

August 14, 2016

I actually wouldn't recommend her to others, but only because she's so popular that if anyone else started seeing her, is never get an appointment! seriously though, she's absolutely amazing. I used to recommend her to everyone until she started being super booked.

July 18, 2016

Love Dr. Pippitt. She is one of my favorite physicians in the Salt Lake valley. Always treats you like a human and not a number/disease.

July 17, 2016

we are struggling to identify & treat an ongoing GI problem.

dr Pippett is open, friendly, knowledable and fun

May 19, 2016

She was great! I felt comfortable, heard, informed, and well cared for. I would love to have her as my primary care provider.

May 19, 2016

Usually she is great at listening to my concerns and addressing them appropriately, but this time she just shrugged them off and ignored them. It was very frustrating and i felt like she didn't care at all. Again, this is an anomaly for her, she's usually quite caring.I wouldn't actually recommend her, but only because you many people see her already and it's impossible to get an appointment.

May 16, 2016

I appreciated the time Dr. Pippitt spent with me explaining medicine and treatment options.

May 15, 2016

I have always had good experience at that clinic .

May 06, 2016

The doctor followed up 3 days later via My Chart to see how I was doing.

April 05, 2016

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Dr. Karly Pippitt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

March 22, 2016

Dr Pippet was really nice although she was unsympathetic about my chronic migraines, acted like the pain was no big deal. I was most discouraged because after all that waiting I was under the impression that I would be seeing a Neurologist.

March 13, 2016

Dr. Pippit was amazing! I have already referred one of my friends that suffers from migranes to her!

March 07, 2016

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, DR PIPPITT!!!! She needs a raise. A big one. And a jet airplane so that she can see to my care when I am traveling internationally.

February 28, 2016

I felt like Dr Pippett took the time necessary to understand me and my problems without rushing me out the door which was a nice change. Her care was genuine and she actually took that time to listen.

February 27, 2016

I feel fortunate that Dr, Pippitt is my main Doctor

February 26, 2016

Dr Pippitt rocks! She always takes the time to explain things to me and make me feel comfortable about treatment plans. She is the best!

February 21, 2016

Dr. Pippitt helped me when I needed her most. She diagnosed my illness and came up with a proper plan to treat me accordingly. I'm lucky that I got to see her when I did so that my health didn't get worse before intervention was prescribed through surgery.

February 14, 2016

Dr. Pippitt is the best around. I have never felt so comfortable and confident in my care. She includes you in all decision making and shows that you are apart of your own health care team. I do and will always recommend Doctor Pippitt to anyone who wants to listen about my amazing Doctor.

January 25, 2016

If the University ever looks into the science of human cloning, I strongly encourage at least 17 more Dr. Pippitts. She's the best provider I have ever had.

January 13, 2016

I feel very fortunate that I am one of Dr,. Pippitt's patients

January 11, 2016

Can't say enough good things about Dr. Pippett.

December 15, 2015

Dr. Pippett is the best family doctor I've ever had. She is relatable, kind, efficient, caring and I trust her. She sat down with me after the appointment and just talked with me. She is like a really smart, caring friend who takes care of me from time to time.

December 13, 2015

Really like how the appointment wasn't rushed. Felt like I was really being heard and thorough examine with quality time given.

November 23, 2015

I feel the care provider if very knowledgeable but the system to reach her assistant or nurse is lacking in efficiency.

November 18, 2015

Dr. Pippett is thoughtful, professional, and very competent. She appears to have a genuine interest in my overall wellness and has spent the time and resources necessary to help me get better.

November 05, 2015

October 24, 2015

Dr. Pippitt is quite simply the very best!

September 13, 2015

Karly Pippitt is the best doctor I have ever had, and I'm not just blowing smoke. She really cares about me an lets me know it. I feel confident that she will know/do everything possible and necessary to get, and help me stay, well. I would recommend her in a heartbeat.

September 13, 2015

I absolutely love Karly Pippit! She always remembers me by name which makes me feel like she cares about her relationship to her patients. She is extremely knowledgeable and very respectful of my personal beliefs.

September 04, 2015

I always recommend Dr. Pippitt when asked for a referral. She is knowlegable and non-judgmental.

September 03, 2015

I am a difficult patient, have difficulty taking advice normally. But I know she is knowledgeable about my condition so I trust what she says and do my best to take her advice. She is extremely patient, friendly and seems to understand and express concern instead of criticize me or judge me harshly.

September 03, 2015

I would only avoid recommending Dr. Pippitt because she is so wonderful, I don't want her to have too many patients so we can't get in to see her. she is the best possible provider.

August 23, 2015

Nothing better than a Doc that can laugh WITH you!! I feel very comfortable with her and trust in her abilities.

August 22, 2015

Dr Pippitt is the greatest she knows how to talk to me

August 05, 2015

Dr. Pippitt is quite simply the best!

August 05, 2015

Dr Pippitt is the most wonderful doc in the world.

August 04, 2015

Dr. Pippit is one of the best medical providers I've ever been treated by. She answered my questions thoroughly, listened to and validated my concerns and allowed me to make a decision pertaining to my healthcare without attempting to persuade me. I only scheduled a consultation, but then asked to get a procedure done that day. She never made me feel like it was an inconvenience and took the time to make sure I was prepared for the procedure. The clinic staff helping were all willing to prep the procedure room and talk me through the process. I almost passed out after the procedure (not an atypical reaction for me) and Dr. Pippitt was more attentive and concerned than I would have ever expected. She waited for nearly 10 minutes right by me until I felt better. I was her last patient and she didn't leave the clinic until she knew I could drive home - she even walked me out. I would confidently recommend her and the Sugarhouse team to my friends and family!

August 03, 2015

I really appreciate her willingness to help me, where other doctors have just prescribe one pill after another without success or follow through, she has. She shows great care and thoughtfulness. I believe she will be a great asset to the Neurology Department.

August 01, 2015

Dr. Pippitt is fantastic. She listens well and always makes me feel comfortable and safe in the office.

July 16, 2015

Dr. Pippitt is very reassuring provider when engaging in conversation about my health. I feel blessed to have such a caring and non-judging doctor. She tells it like it is, but with kindness and tact. She "gets" how different people tick and then sets out to help them figure out how to get them to a better health condition. Thanks Dr. Pippitt!

June 15, 2015

Dr Pippett was amazing.

June 12, 2015

Dr. Pippitt is always wonderful and I love having appointments with her.

June 10, 2015

Dr. Pippett is talented and genuinely cares. a rockstar!!

June 10, 2015

Karly was very personable and professional. She is amazing!!!! I am so lucky to have her as a provider.

June 10, 2015

It was a good experience and I am grateful to have found somebody I am comfortable working with in the future.

May 10, 2015

Dr. KP is the best! I would recommend her to anyone and everyone, love her!

May 05, 2015

Dr. Pippitt is the best doctor I have ever had. She is so friendly, personable, and understanding of what I try to explain to her. She always calms any concerns I have, and knows exactly what to do to help whatever is going wrong.

May 03, 2015

The only thing I would ask for is a bit slower pace. Everything was done so quickly. The assistant recited the questions SO fast.

April 24, 2015

Dr. Pippitt is terrific! She was very clear in her communication with me throughout the visit and took the time to ensure all of my concerns were addressed!

April 22, 2015

I had not had a check up in a long time..and this one was so made my concerns in the past seem silly!

April 21, 2015

Dr. Pippett is wonderful. Takes her time to understand my concerns and makes me feel like my problems matter.

April 18, 2015

Issues with communication and had two prescriptions the pharmacists could not fill as they were written, causing an unexpected and large change to an existing Rx which the doctor has not attempted to resolve. Several issues I brought up with the NP were not addressed at all during the visit by the doctor, leaving me unsure of whether they felt the issues were unimportant or if they wanted to address them at another time.

April 10, 2015

Dr. Pippitt is my infant daughter's doctor and we couldn't be happier with her. She always seems happy to see us, remembers what we talked about in the last visit, and gives plenty of time for this new mom and dad to ask lots of questions.

April 10, 2015

Karly is great. She really cares about her patients, making us feel like she will go the extra mile to 'get it done'.

March 30, 2015

Dr. Pippitt and her staff are amazing. She was very caring and concerned during the procedure.

March 23, 2015

I would recommend Dr. Pippitt to every body. She is like a very kind relative, and not just a very good doctor.

March 20, 2015

I used to recommend her to everyone.. Now I don't recommend her, because her schedule is so full that is never get an appointment if I sent anyone her way!

March 18, 2015

Dr. Pippitt is the best doctor I have ever had.

March 06, 2015

I always feel better and more optimistic after seeing Dr. Pippitt!

March 03, 2015

Love Dr Pippitt! She's great.

March 02, 2015

The last two times I've been in the doctor said she wasn't sure what to make of my test results. A wait and see approach is ok the first time but the second time I would have liked a referral to a specialist or to have the doctor do some research on the issue.

February 28, 2015

I was very impressed with her kindness

February 22, 2015

Doctor Pippitt was great as always! She has such a positive energy and she tries to make me feel at easy. Thank you Doctor P!

February 16, 2015

Dr. Pippit is great!

February 16, 2015

This was my first visit with Dr. Pippitt at the Neurology clinic. I am very happy with her care and treatment plan.

February 12, 2015

excellent experience, excellent doctor and MA. thank you

February 05, 2015

I liked that my physician spent time talking to me and getting to know me and what my concerns were. This was my first time seeing this physician and I am very glad I chose to establish primary care with them.

January 31, 2015

Greatly appreciate her expertise and knowledge as a specialist. Respectful, upbeat and supportive.

December 23, 2014

I see why Dr. Pippitt has groupies. Count me in.

November 14, 2014

Dr Pippitt is wonderful. Every time our family visits with her we are glad to have her as our Doctor.

November 01, 2014

I've never had a doctor spend so much time and show so much care.

October 21, 2014

She is an amazing provider. I would suggest anyone looking for a Primary Care Provider to try to get Dr. Pippitt. She cares, listens to concerns and makes the entire visit comfortable no matter what is being discussed. You can tell she has a wide range of knowledge and it was my best doctor visit ever. I will keep coming back to her for as long as I'm in SLC.

October 18, 2014

Doctor was great.

October 16, 2014

Dr. Pippitt is an exceptional physician that effectively practices patient-centered care. She is knowledgeable and takes the time to hear your concerns and respond with solutions. I am so thrilled to have her as my primary care physician.

September 25, 2014


September 25, 2014

there were no medications discussed. I left feeling that there was going to be followup with a couple of specialists, but a little fuzzy on how or when that would take place.

September 14, 2014

Dr. Pippitt and Dr. Van Hala Make me feel like I am the only patient they have. They both spent a lot of time with me and seem very concerned about my condition.

September 06, 2014

dr. Pippitt is always so genuine, kind, understanding and explains things in detail.

August 21, 2014

Dr. Pippitt is fantastic! She has my highest recommendation!

August 15, 2014

Karly is the BEST!

August 15, 2014

I feel Dr. Pippitt is a very competent doctor. It appeared to me that she conferred too much with the medical student (not even a resident), and almost allowed the student to lead the diagnosis. With no definitive resolution to my problem, it appears that she needed help figuring it out, even though I am sure she does not.

August 14, 2014

Fantastic physician.

August 06, 2014

Dr. Pippett was wonderful. I have told everyone what a great experience i had. Even with transferring my care from one facility over, she was sincere, friendly, knowledgeable and everything one would seek in a PCP.

August 01, 2014

As always Dr. Pippitt was very comforting and easy to talk to about the procedure. She was very caring and followed all procedures properly. She is a great communicator and I would recommend her to anyone.

July 31, 2014

I'm so lucky to have Dr. Pippitt as my regular doctor!

July 24, 2014

I am new to this provider and clinic. I am very impressed and pleased. Very happy!

July 13, 2014

Dr.Pippett came highly recommended by a friend. I was pleasantly surprised by about amount of quality time she spend with me. I felt as though she was earnestly trying to get to know me and become an active positive influence in my health goals. I can honestly say that I trust her and know she had my best at heart.

July 09, 2014

It took a while to get in to see Dr. Pippit, but she was excellent; worth the wait!

June 26, 2014

Pleasant and informative.

June 26, 2014


June 05, 2014

Dr pippitt and barb were great.

June 05, 2014

The Best.

June 02, 2014

Dr Pippin was very present and engaged throughout the entire appointment.

May 30, 2014

Dr. Pippitt is outstanding. Not only is she an excellent clinician who takes very good care of me and whom I trust, but she is also very personable and concerned. She treats me like I have a brain and considers my input, and I never feel rushed through appointments. Making up for the difficulty of reaching anyone who is actually in the clinic, she is very good at communicating with me through the messaging system. The only reason I wouldn't recommend her is because she's just too busy - I've been wanting to get my husband in with her for years!

May 19, 2014

Dr. Pippitt is friendly, funny, kind, smart, and doesn't make me feel stupid for asking questions. She is always thinking about all options and does a great job laying them out for me in a way that helps me understand what is going on and what decisions I'll need to make. I enjoy my visits to the clinic because Dr. Pippitt is so awesome!

May 12, 2014

LOVE her! I've been seeing her for years, she's without a doubt the best doctor I've ever seen (and that's a lot)!!

May 06, 2014

The best.

May 04, 2014

Dr pippett is tremendous. I have recommended her to several people and will do so to anyone who asks about a physician need. Wonderful personality.

March 29, 2014

Great Service!

March 20, 2014

Dr. Pippitt is absolutely the best doctor I've ever had.

February 14, 2014

Dr Pippitt knew exactly how to manage my issue. She orded an xray, I was taken right back and before I could finish a magazine article she had the results, compared it to a previous xray, Gave me a treatment plan and I was on my way. I am feeling much better now. The excercises really helped.

February 07, 2014

Karly is awesome and needs to have her name plate changed to all capital letters like every other doctor in this clinic.

February 04, 2014

5 stars for Dr. Pippitt!

January 04, 2014

Dr. Pippitt is alway making sure I'm okay with medications and such. She never pressures me to take a medication and she is always reassuring me of the benefits and also hazards in taking a certain medication. Her staff and herself are always helping me to understand my conditions and how the medication would help. And that is really important to me.

January 03, 2014

Dr Pippitt is the best. Not enough good things can be said about her. Phenominal service. Other doctors pale in comparisson.

December 11, 2013

I can't say enough good things about my son's physician. She genuinely cares and went the extra mile at this appointment to figure out what was going on with my little boy. I absolutely would recommend her to others.

December 05, 2013

Dr. Pippitt is always great about talking with me about my health and how to better it. She takes the time to answer any and all questions and it makes a difference.

December 02, 2013

Dr. Pippitt is AWESOME!!!

October 31, 2013

My daughter recommended me to see Dr Pippitt and I referred my other family members to see her. She is very accommodating to my request to agree to see my other family member even I was told from the scheduler that she has closed her new patient schedule.

October 25, 2013

Dr. Pippit as always was very helpful, kind and knowledgable. She listened to my concerns, gave excellent feedback and treatment. She gave me handouts and verbal instructions on what I needed to do. The handouts were very helpful and informative.

April 15, 2013

I have always had a very positive experience with the care provider and all staff.

April 05, 2013

Dr. Pippitt was wonderful. She was waiting for us in the exam room. Was very patient & caring with my son who was scared, in addition to not feeling well. Went out of her way to help get us signed up with MyChart for easy access to our records.

I love Dr. Pippitt. She was so patient and understanding and made sure all of my questions were answered before she left. She followed up with my test results very quickly and made sure I understood instructions for the medications she prescribed and follow-up instructions.

February 15, 2013

I've never had a doctor like Dr. Pippitt. She has a cheery personality and takes the time to explain things. She is the only doctor I've seen in the last 15 years that upon hearing I had an issue with insomnia sat down with me to try to understand my issue and offer medical advice. It makes me feel that things will be ok rather than a doomsday approach which I have had in the past with other doctors. Her bedside manners is impeccable.

February 14, 2013

I thought Dr. Pippet was excellent and lives up to all of the great things I've heard about her.

February 11, 2013

Awesome doesn't even begin to describe Dr. Pippitt!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dr Pippitt is awesome

November 19, 2012

Some of the exams were done by a student during my visit, with my consent. She was also very helpful and nice, although for the annual exam she did kind of hurt me and I has some bleeding for 3 days following my exam. I do not blame her or feel upset, I know she needs to learn how to do the exam, but it was a bit uncomfortable.

Dr. Pippitt is AMAZING!!!! I have seen her for over 4 years and she has always been thorough and compassionate. Thank you.

October 21, 2012

I have made several recommendations.

October 19, 2012

Dr. Pippitt has been there for me and my family for many years now, and I know we could bring any and all our health care concerns to her. I am thankful for her compassionate care.

October 18, 2012

I am very pleased with this physician. She respects any questions that are asked and answers them thoroughly. She involved me in the care plan.

October 03, 2012

I would highly recommend Dr. Pippitt to anyone. She has my utmost confidence. I feel I can be honest and straightforward with her and I believe that is a two-way street. It will be a sad day if/when my insurance changes and I am unable to continue seeing her as my primary care physician. She has been an absolute gem.

September 23, 2012

I felt like she simply dismissed my concerns, which was very disheartening.

Dr. Pippitt is the best PCP I have ever had. I love the fact that she listens to what I have to say, is encouraging when I need it, and her directness is greatly appreciated. I have recommended Dr. Pippitt to many people and will continue to do so. The quality of her care is beyond excellent.

July 05, 2012

Great bedside manner!

June 29, 2012

Dr. Karly did an excellent job at asking questions and hearing my complaint, and making me feel at ease with the diagnosis. However, with treatment I would have scheduled some other diagnostic procedure along with the medication, because she wasn't sure what exactly was going on, with the discomfort I was feeling.

The doctor was amazing. I would reuquest her services for myself and my whole family. She is easy to talk to and uses language we can understand. She is very patient and take time for us to ask and explains her answers.

June 25, 2012

Dr. Pippit always takes the time to explain to me what's going on, what the options are for my treatment and together we make a decision. I always understand what's going on and I'm always well taken care of.

January 12, 2012

Dr. Pippitt is one of the best doctors I've ever been to. She always goes the extra mile for her patients.

January 10, 2012

Everyone was very friendly. Dr. Pippet makes me feel very comfortable and is easy to talk with.

January 05, 2012

She was very kind and i wasn't afraid to talk to her. One of the best experiences i have had at a doctor's

January 03, 2012

Dr. P. Needs to work on being more empathic; acting interested and seeming less irritated. This was my first and last visit. She has over the top expectations for patients to run out and add on all forms of treatment to make a comprehensive treatment; however, she never asked or realized or seemed to care that patients may have financial barriers in their way, preventing them from adding on several other healthcare providers to the treatment approach. Poor eye contact. Not the least bit of empathy shown. Very dry. May be smart at medicine but fails in communicating with patients in any form of caring way.

January 03, 2012

overall a great experience. I enjoyed the amount of time I received from Dr. Pippitt. I never felt rushed. She listened and we decided on our next step for my health care.
