Dr Puopolo is an excellent Surgeon I had a lypolma on the inside of my wrist near nerves and arteries a very delicate area. Needless to say how freaked out I was about getting it removed . He has a easy going, positive, confident manner about him this coupled with nurses I knew that spoke highly of his work put me at ease. I had the surgery and everything turned out great ! I would recommend him definatly!!!

I had the pleasure of being treated by Dr. Puopolo for carpal tunnel syndrome. The results were truly extraordinary with little pain. The hospital surgery was one week ago. Office staff excellent. Hospital experience at St Charles excellent, thorough and on schedule. I highly recommend Dr. Puopolo a truly talented surgeon.
