My excellent primary care physician, Brent Cole, recommended Dr. Scarupa, so I knew I would be in good hands, but he exceeded my expectations. The treatment he prescribed is conservative but having a positive effect immediately! In other words,he is first trying something safe, affordable, and easy to use, and monitoring before recommending more aggressive treatment. That works for me. He's also unusually good to talk to: we connected. Great doctor!

Dr. Scarupa is a fantastic doctor. He listens to the patient carefully & asks the right questions. Then he considers the best treatment plan & explains it to the patient. He is very patient-centered which is rare these days.

Dr. Scarupa was very helpful and easy to talk to, and carefully explained everything without sounding condescending. Blood work and allergy panel was done immediately and in the office (as opposed to a separate lab) and I was done with everything—consultation,blood work, and allergy panel—in the allotted hour and a half! Staff and nurses are also very nice and efficient, would definitely recommend Dr. Scarupa!

Dr. Scarupa clearly has vast knowledge of allergies and was kind enough to spend time explaining things to me. I am now much better equipped to deal with my allergies, and I now know my own guesses about what I'm allergicto were all wrong. It's VERY valuable to know, from science and medical knowledge, what I'm allergic to. I had elaborate plans to avoid ragweed by spending the fall out of town, but now I know all I need to do is control the mold around me, and avoid it outside or treat the problem as needed. Life is going to be easier thanks to my visit to Dr. Scarupa!
