What People Say About Dr. Rafael Lupercio, MD

I was a patient of Dr. Lupercio for 5 years. Over those years he repeatedly told me there was nothing that could be done for my condition. My condition slowly deteriorated until even my primary practioner questioned this response. I have been seeing a different pulmonologist since June. During my first visit my current pulmonolgist used the word "shocking" to describe how badly my condition had deteriorated. My current doctor has opened my medical care to several treatments, strategies, and medications I did not know existed, because Dr. Lupercio told me they didn't. For 5 years he simply watched me deteriorate appointment after appointment and I will never understand why.

Dr. Lupercio has treated me for COPD and followup after lung cancer surgery for 5 yrs. He explains everything clearly, answers all my questions. He is kind and caring. I've had nothing but pleasant experience with his treatment, and his staff.

Dr.Lupercio saved my husband's life 11 years ago against all odds, when he wasn't expected to live beyond 3 days. He is an amazing doctor & true friend to our family. Words can not express my gratitude as my husband remains under his care to this day and is doing well. He is a God sent angel.

Yes I've seen dr Lupercio he was nice the first visit but was too eager to do a surgery on me without trying other options he first told me I could try diet and medication then on the second visit he told me he never said that and began yelling at me telling me I have to have this surgery the swan ganz cateraration, he set it all up at the hospital but when my insurance ask for the proper paper work he didn't send it he threw a complete fit with me in the examining room. I fired him and walked!!
