Dr. Lupo is not only a wonderful doctor, but he is an awesome human being. He gave me back my life and I am forever grateful to him and his staff for everything all of them have done for me, as a team. They are a fantastic group of people and yes, I have recommend his office to other people I have come across who felt hopeless with a past hip replacement from another doctor.

I stressed my concerns about my leg pain and ability to walk because I was going to Disney World in three weeks with my family to celebrate our 50th Anniversary. Dr. Lupo diagnosed the problem and offered me ideas to help. He knows my fears and helped me so much with the right decision. He gave ways of reducing the pain and improving my condition before and while I was away.

Dr. Lupo introduced himself and shook my hand. He listened to me and asked questions, and watched me walk and checked me. Then he checked the X-ray with me and came to his conclusion. He then gave me a clear explanation and spent more time clearly explaining the most important and necessary exercise to do to help this problem. He offered me the choice of whether I felt I needed a cortisone shot along with the exercise at this point. I did not. He then gave me a reasonable length of time to see if the exercise would work and follow-up possibilities if it did not. It was an excellent visit from start to finish!

Dr Lupa did a fabulous job on my hip replacement. He is patient and eager to put my concerns to rest. His upbeat personality is much appreciated and comforting. He is not intimidating as some physicians can be. I'm starting to pain in my other hip and feel I may need another replacement. I plan to have Dr. Lupa do that one as well when the time comes.
