    Both my wife and I needed a doctor in Santa Barbara. Dr Kupperman came highly recommended by a close friend. He is very impressive, knowledgable and helpful. He successfully treated my wife sinus issues that several other doctors were unable to treat. We now also highly recommend him.

    Dr. Kupperman goes above and beyond! He treated me as a whole person, my entire health needs, not just my lung issues. I have been so touched by his caring and that of his entire staff. They are all incredibly well trained and help create feelings of immense safety & incredible confidence. Little things make such a difference! In today's medical world where it seems that everyone is over scheduled, I felt that I had all the time I needed, my health needs were more than met. THANK YOU!!
