Patient Comments (4)
Provincetown, MA |
I have been a patient of Dr. Dupee's since 1989 and he has been outstanding. He's always been available for acute care needs, has an outstanding bedside manner, he listens, and he has always surrounded himself with equally outstanding staff. I consider myself privileged to be included in his Tufts Medical Center practice.
Wellesley Hills, MA |
While Dr.Dupee had his practice in Wellesley, he was the worst in the business. Unfortunately there were no other Geriatric specialist in the area . He was very rude and the most arrogant doctor I have been to. Truthfully, he was run out of town! His office was shut down with many of us left without notice or access to our medical records. Shocked he is still practicing legally! Shame on the medical profession. I was told he owed so much money that they allowed him to practice only to pay back.
