Patient Comments (5)
Bottom line, Dr. Lupu is condescending and believes he knows better. As a physician, I am qualified to say that his patient communication and demeanor is outrageously embarrassing to the industry. I do question his knowledge, medical experience and his lack including office support of obtaining previous medical records. While i am sure there are patients that have had a good experience, his inability to properly identify this patients core issue is unprofessional and medically irresponsible.

A very nice doctor, a real Doctor Who is looking to help you and your problem,. Very smart and helpful

Dr. Lupu came highly recommended, and did not disappoint. Very knowledgeable, easy to talk to, very direct and considers all possibilities. I highly recommend.

Unlike the other patient who left a comment, if Dr. Lupu hadn't examined me but merely relied on previous diagnoses I would not have been impressed. Dr. Lupu was a researcher and is very knowledgeable. He listens and answers questions (even if you ask what many people consider too many ;-). I've been diagnosed with small fiber neuropathy and I think he will tell me about the latest treatments. BTW, the new department at St. V's is gorgeous and they have great equipment, but they need art!

At first appt, did not ask for brief neurological history, nor did he even have my medical records from my prior neurologist. Re-diagnosed 2 diagnosis that I was not there to see him for and then brushed off the reason I was there for as a mental illness!!! Still without seeing any medical records. UNBELIEVABLE
