Patient Comments (6)

Dr. Lopoo is very knowledgeable, confident and calm. He is very thorough and empathetic to both his patients and their parents. He operated on my baby when he was 1 day old. Did an incredible job and with minimal scarring.

Dr. Lopoo was very helpful and courteous with my husband and I during our son's surgery. He took the time to explain everything to us about what was happening with our child. I would highly recommend him to any parent.

I would never recommend Dr. John Lopoo to any parent for their child's operation. He comes with zero bedside manner, and is careless in his pre-operation routine. I hope parents do not make the same mistake we did.
