Dr. Kupcha and his staff at Delaware Orthopaedic Specialist were phenomenal. I was very fortunate to be able to get an emergency appointment with him to treat a complicated multi-bone fracture. From the very first meeting he was knowledgeable and plan orientated, which is exactly what I needed. His staff were well versed in treating me and my injury. They helped me to successfully manage my pain and focus on my healing.I highly recommend Dr. Kupcha.

I fractured my ankle last fall and Dr. Kupcha just reviewed my x-rays. He said I had healed well and released me. Throughout the last few months he saw me several times and explained details about the fracture. I had returned to him since he did a great job 20 years ago with the removal of my bunion.

I felt that Dr. Kupcha took the time with me to figure out what was really wrong with my knee. I didn't feel rushed through my appointment like I sometimes feel with other doctors.

Recently underwent PTTD repair. Services rendered when very perfessional and comprehensive. First post- op visit went very well as all visits have been. The entire staff was patient friendly and caring. I would like to especially thank Geary the PA and Mark the OPT for their professionalism. Dr. Kupcha leads by example and it it evident by his staff approach to patient care.

Over charges for medical devices. Up to 7X the worth of the device. Not necessary to do that when you are heavily compensated by your office visit fees and surgical fees. When you need an emergency operation, you get who you get. Don't ask them to copy something relating to your injury, you will be denied. I prefer kinder people to deal with, hopefully I won't be back to their offices ever again.

I chose Dr. Kupcha to perform elective surgery on my little toe since it had been broken so many times. He shaved off some of the bone and fixed the tendon. It was a good experience. I felt no pain after the surgery, nor during the two weeks that I had to wear the bandage until I had my stitches removed. Dr. Kupcha and his assistant were very thorough, professional and kind.

I went to Dr. Kupcha to get a second opinion concerning my ankle (2 torn tendons, 2 severed ligaments). The physical exam was abrupt. He then looked at the skeletal ultrasound which he said he normally does not see very often and he expressed confusion in the images. I explained I could not get an MRI as I have a pacemaker. He then read the radiology report. Afterward, he said the surgery was up to me, gave my wife and me the telephone number of his surgical scheduler and walked out.

I have a lot of confidence in Delortho physicians. They treat you like an individual. They do not appear rushed. The PA compliments the process by spending more time and answering questions and demonstrating exercises and confirming understanding. This is in direct contrast to the other large Delaware orthopedic practice where you are not treated as an individual and you always feel rushed.

I wanted to say thanks to Dr. Kupcha and his 2 physician assistants, Mike and Geary for taking care of me for the second time. Dr. Kupcha performed bilateral bunionectomys on me. The results of the out patient surgical procedures were perfect. I have not experienced any pain since having the procedures done. I highly recommend Dr. Kupcha to anyone experiencing foot and ankle pain.

Dr. Kupcha is wonderful. I recently had the good fortune of meeting him and his SUPER med-tech Mark about my aging feet. He was thorough and efficient and made me feel so much better about the issue I am experiencing. I was especially thrilled that he didn't seem to want to rush to invasive measures. The office staff was amazing too. The wait was lightening fast and the x-rays I had taken at Papastavros were also so easy and fast! Dr. Kupcha and Mark are ROCK STARS just like everyone at DOC

I have been a patient of Dr. Kupcha's as well as working with him in the medical field for many years. I have seen him with patients and he appears to have a good rapor with them I know of people he has treated and they all speak very highly of him. I have found; My appointments are not rushed, He does listen when you talk, He is pleasant and friendly. I do hope patients with an orthopedic problem would come and meet him and have him evaluate them. Gratefully Christine Serio

I live in New Jersey but Dr Kupcha was recommended by a coworker who had knee surgery. Im glad I took her advice. It was worth the drive. He took his time and made sure I understood everything he was telling me.
