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?
