Verified Patient Reviews
Great Doctor. Very knowledgeable and explained symptoms and treatment options to me very clearly.
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 allergic to 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!
Dr.Scarupa has to be one of the best doctors I have ever had.
Best experience ive had at a doctor's office in a long time. Very professional, kind and thoughtful in not pushing for expensive treatments without trying an easier remedy first.
He is the best

He figured out the underlying illness so many doctors had missed.
I have a rare disease. Mark Scarupa has the best understanding of this disease and how to live with it that I've ever encountered. He also works with me to ensure the treatment of this disease does not interfere with living a very, very full life. Dr. Mark Scarupa has my unqualified recommendation.
