Specialties

Dr. Vitalie D Lupu has the following 2 specialties

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

Re-diagnosed 2 neurological diagnosis that I was not there to see him about. After the 1st appointment, which he made his re-diagnosis, and he didn't have my medical records from my previous Neurologist, he then diagnosed me with a mental illness! Wow! He's so good he can look at you and know what's wrong with you!

Best Dr.

I was having a terrible time with my feet and legs when I was first referred to Dr. Lupu. He did some testing and found I had neuropathy and prescribed some medication. Although there isn't any "cure" the medication has made a would of difference. He has changed my dosages several times in order to help me be more comfortable. He diagnosed the problem when several other Drs. couldn't figgure out what was going on.. Five stars from me. By the way, his staff members are also the best !!

With a chronological neurological disorder that I've had for 30 years, I have been to several neurologists. Of all of them, Dr. Lupu was the most willing to spend time and explain my options to me clearly .

this doctor deserves an award!

Ok its been a couple years since I last gave my A+ to this doctor. This is in no way meant to criticise the other bloggers. I mean that. Because I understand the importance of trusting your physician. However, the reason that Dr. Lupu can be hard to get a hold of at times, is because he is a loyal and commited doctor to each and every patient. This makes him a very busy man. There have been MANY occassions that my husband or I left him a message with a concern and we ALWAYS hear back same day! A couple times he called me at 7:30pm from his cell phone to follow up on a health concern. I've never had a doctor that devoted! I've seen him since 2006 now and he has been my guiding light in the darkness that is multiple sclerosis. When I can not afford an important medication, he will order samples for me to make sure I'm covered! Not just hand out what he has in the supply closet, but order specialty drug samples to make sure I'm taken care of. During office visits, he is always informative, empathetic, and kind. No question is "dumb" or inconvienant for him. He will gladly sit down with you and make sure every single concern is addressed and answered to the satisfaction of his patient. I am an LMT and a RMA and have worked with, and had some, pretty arrogant doctors. When working in PACU in pain management, I would refer all my patients to him. I also convinced a few docs I worked with to refer to Dr.Lupu first. I honestly don't have room to list all the reasons to see this doctor. He will treat you like you're part of his family. He is my angel on earth.
