“Michael Lipton has been a trusted advisor to WebMD for over a decade.  He consistently takes the time to understand each requirement in all its detail, complexity and nuance.  In addition, he appreciates the big picture strategy as well as the most arcane details and subtleties unique to the location, user group, culture and at times conflicting agendas that inhabit many if not most of our projects.  Against that backdrop, he works tirelessly and relentlessly to deliver solutions, ideas and counsel that reflect a level of professionalism and effort that is frankly not often found in this business.  We have been fortunate to have Michael in our corner for many years.  He has delivered for us in dollars and deadline repeatedly, and in doing so has more than earned his stripes in our minds.  Michael has my highest recommendation.”
