      Since Dr. Luptalo is an oncologist going to see him is not a happy occasion. He is a very nice man who certainly knows what he is doing. I almost died from chemo side effects but Dr. Laptalo was there every morning in the hospital, offering encourement and support. I do not like Mercy's cancer center because they do not have a lab. In spite of that Dr. Laptalo is a great doctor, and I am five years cancer free. What more can anyone ask?

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
