      Dr Luptons bedside manor is exceptional. He seems to really care about my mothers health and listens to everything she has concerns about. He has helped her health tremendously as she has been able to do more at home for herself than before seeing Dr Lupton.

      Dr. Lupton has really helped my mom very much !! Started going to him over a year ago . First my mom couldn't walk from one end of the house to the other and have to sit down and be out of breath !! Now after Dr Lupton and his associate got thru she is doing 100% better !! I would recommend them to everyone !! Great job and thanks !!

      Lupton is the nearest thing to a quack doctor I have ever encountered.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
