Ratings for Dr. Alina C. Lopo
I couldn't believe some of these comments and was wondering if the negative comments were for another doctor. Dr. Lopo is by far one of the best, of the best physicians I have ever seen. She has saved my Fathers life, my Mothers life, my Father in laws life, mine and my husbands. I have never seen such intuition, accurateness, or knowledge from one single doctor ever! Dr. Lopo is so well versed in so many realms, each one of us would surely have been dead by now if not for her. And seniors... Dr. Lopo has a special place in her heart for them as well. While many doctors treat VERY old seniors with a wait and see mentality, she treats them as if they were 20 and have 80 more years to live. Our family can't speak highly enough about her. A wonderful physician, friend, and a lovely spirit. We LOVE this person. If you want to know the truth about your health, just ask her, she will not hold back. This is a sincere doctor that you can feel privileged to see along w/her amazing staff.
Visited Dr. Lopo a few times w/ the last visit being almost 2 years ago. Just recieved ANOTHER bill for $50. For my 3 or 4 visits I have recieved at least 15 different bills from her months apart. She makes it impossible to hold her accountable for what she is billing. Save yourself the headache and find a different MD!
my wife and I WERE GOING TO THIS DOCTOR AND I WOULD RANK HER A D- AS A CARING PERSON SHE IS RUDE HAS NO PATIENCE FOR COMMENTS ON HER INCOMPITENT STAFF ALSO SHE TURNED HER PRACTICE INTO A THE MORE YOU PAY THE BETTER THE CARE SHE GIVES HER OFFICE WAS ASKING PATIENTS TO PAY AS MUCH AS 2500.00 PER YEAR FOR CARE THAT SHOULD BE STANDARD. FOR 2500.00 EXTRA A YEAR SHE WILL GIVE YOU HER CELL PHONE NUMBER AND NOT HAVE YOU WAIT AN HOUR OR MORE LIKE MOST OF HER PATIENTS. i SUSPECT THAT THE POSITIVE COMMENTS POSTED MAY BE FROM PATIENTS THAT PAID THE EXTRA YEARLY FEE. WHAT A DISAPOINTMENT THIS DOCTOR WAS TO ME.
I haven't seen Dr. Lopo in quite a while. She was my mother's doctor when my mother was in the early stages of Alzheimer's. It was easy to see that Dr. Lopo was caring, very compassionate, and treated my mother like a real human being -- not just like a client. At one point during an exam, I actually saw tears in Dr. Lopo's eyes because she empathized so much with my mother's cognitive deterioration. I would not hesitate to recommend her for those who want to be treated with dignity.
One of the worst doctors I have ever known. She is rude and has a very bad attitude about elderly patients. She is not understanding of elderly patients and their needs. Maybe she will be judged that way someday herself. She is not very knowledgeable and puts people through the wrong tests because she doesn't know how to properly diagnosis them. I wrote her a letter about how I felt and she wouldn't even read it and tore it up in front of me. I feel sorry for anyone who puts their life in her hands.
I don't go to Dr Lopo anymore, but my daughter does, and she is a wonderful doctor. The only reason I don't is that I take a more preventative approach to medicine so I go to a doctor of Integrated Medicine. Dr Lopo is a graduate of UCLA, and she is extremely knowledgeable in traditional medicine. She does incorporate some vitamins and supplements but contrary to another reviewer, the ones she uses have been clinically tested. If you doubt this, just get a second opinion from Consumerlab.org, and independent and highly regarded lab. I have waited at times but there are a variety of magazines to choose from..not just the trashy ones. If you are short on time, make your appt for first thing in the morning or right after lunch or call ahead to see how far she is running behind. I do this with every doctor and I seldom wait. She is very caring in her approach and follows up with you at home if necessary. She takes more time than most doctors when you get in to see her.
I just cannot believe that there is anyone that can say with any honesty that Dr. Lopo is anything but caring for all of her patients. Also, I have never had a doctor who had spent as much time with you as needed even though her waiting room was filling up fast. Not one time did I ever feel rushed or neglected. I have looked for someone like her in the medical field and it took a very long time to find someone I trust completely. She has seen both myself and my husband and saved both our lives because she would not give up until she found the problem. Once we were diagnosed, she wasted no time in getting us the necessary treatment and called in every specialist she felt we needed.I truly cannot say enough about Dr. Lopo, she is one in a million and everyone should be so lucky to have her as their own personal m.d.. She leaves no stone unturned until she is satisfied with the results. So, not only is she the best, but is also the most down to earth person you would ever want to know.
