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.

Dr Lopes saved my life. All I remember from that night was him holding my hand as I went to sleep in the operating room, not knowing if I would ever see my family again. His words "I'll take great care of you" as I dozed off. And he delivered. Couldn't be more thankful. Words cannot express my gratitude. Great doctor and even better bed side manner.

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+++

My experience with Dr. Lopes September 27, 2016 was great. He repaired a very huge hernia i had in my growing area...He's a doctor that cares about his clients...He explains everything to you before and after the surgery, his staff is friendly and very professional...I will recommend him to anyone...I have little to no pain afterwards, great experience!!!!!!

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.

my name is marion and I am from Elizabeth I went to dr lopes for a hiatal hernia surgery and I was scheduled fro may 11 on Tuesday may 10 he called and cancelled it because he wanted me to go for a second opinion in new York city he was wrong to do that do me and he was very rude tome on the phone I am sick and this was not right to do this I would not recommend this doctor to no one he also said he might hurt me if he did not want to do it he should have told me from the beginning not lie to me
in Elizabeth, NJ |
