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

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 25, 2014


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

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 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)!!

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.

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

December 03, 2012

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.

November 07, 2012

Dr. Pippitt is one of the best physicians I've ever seen and I couldn't ask for more!

November 07, 2012

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.

September 18, 2012

As always my care provider show concern for my questions and gave my helpful information regarding my health concern.

June 29, 2012

Dr Pippitt is amazing she really cares about her patients it's nice too have someone like her i'm very blessed to have her on my team

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.

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.

June 25, 2012

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.

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 12, 2012

i wouldn't want any other Dr she is the greatest!!

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

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.

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.
