The evening was filled with joy, humor, historical facts, entertainment, roasts and toasts by fellow Scarsdale Medical Group partners, including a humorous slideshow presented by Dr. Paul Pechman, on some of history’s prominent personalities who have donned bow-ties - Dr. Lipman’s signature look. Another partner, Dr. Kenneth Croen, informed the gathering that over the 50 years, Dr. Lipman had seen 250,000 patients and written a million prescriptions. The roasts were followed by a musical tribute, with songs written and performed by Naomi Lipman, Dr. Lipman’s wife of 60 years, and his son, Barry Lipman.
