Saved my life during COVID crisis and kept my family at ease- they were not able to come inside hospital. I needed emergency surgery during covid- but Dr Lopes was there (mask on) and provided great care and was able to keep my family updated daily. He even provided FaceTime in my room until i can get my phone. Thank you so much!

Dr. Lopes performed a major hernia repair for me. He is just a great surgeon, with an excellent bed side manner. Everything that he did to prepare me for the surgery really put my mind at ease. This being my first surgery, I was very apprehensive. Dr. Lopes did such a good of explaining every detail that it helped put my mind at ease. Also, the rest of his team at Overlook Hospital were great. I would highly recommend Dr. Lopes.

So far everythingbad been as expected. Dr Lopes confidence put me at ease in a time of few options. I was very pleased with how thorough he was in not only handling my Laparoscopic Appendectomy, but he also found an inguinal hernia that I came to find out subsequently was a genetic thing in the males in my father's side. From my understanding he noticed it upon going in to do the appendectomy and saved me the double recovery by taking care of everything all at once. His staff...A+++

Dr. Lopes removed my ruptured appendix in a relatively urgent surgery on April 29th. Despite some complications (nothing to do with his skill) he did a great job and my recovery proceeded exactly as he said it would despite my reluctantly following doctor's orders. I highly recommend Dr. Lopes.
