Mantua, NJ |
The front staff was excellent but I had to wait over an hour to see the doctor. No one gave me an update or reason why until I asked. Then Dr. Lupa was very condescending when I asked questions. He spoke down to me and did not make a comfortable environment for inquiring. I would not come back to...more

My visit to Becker ENT was outstanding. Dr. Michael Lupa was professional, courteous, and knowledgeable. He explained every step of my procedure in a clear and concise manner and made it a point to be sure I felt comfortable. I will absolutely recommend him to friends/family.

A great experience with Dr. Lupa. Took my 3 year old son there and he was incredibly patient with him. Answered all my questions and I never felt rushed. Office staff are friendly, polite and accommodating. Would definitely recommend Dr.Lupa.

Dr. Lupa treated me when he worked for Kaiser in Roseville, CA. He took excellent care of me and helped to clear up a sinus infection that I had suffered from for years. Dr. Lupa, I really miss you and hope you and your family are happy to be back with your extended family again.
