Doctor was very friendly and helpful, and his staff spoke very highly of him (always a good sign). I felt very comfortable in this office discussing my health concerns.

The nurse who assisted me prior to seeing the doctor was wonderful. I was very impressed with Dr. Kochupura, and he was an exceptional and very caring doctor.

He listened. He communicated with understanding and compassion, and was able to alleviate some concerns I had. He came into the appointment having familiarized himself with past x-ray and several CT scans, which he pulled up on his computer and used in our discussion, very effectively. This is perhaps the best doctor's visit I have ever had.

Dr. Peter was an extremely concerned, helpful and great doctor. The staff were equally helpful and pleasant. I even told them so.

The nurse that first saw was great. When she found that I forgot my "reader" glasses, she gave me hers to complete all of the pages prior to seeing the doctor. Dr. Kochupura was wonderful. He was very nice and kind in listening to the history of why I was there. He was thoughtful and very articulate as to what manner we should proceed with treatment. I was very impressed with him and the manner in which he spoke with me and listened. He was not typing on the computer while I was speaking. He was making actual handwritten notes when giving him history. He showed me the CT scans done in 2008 through 2010 showing the lymph nodes in my lungs. Prior physician merely said I had nodes in my right lung which concerned me because I had breast cancer and had a right mastectomy previously. He said that lymph nodes in the lungs are natural and I should not be worried about them.
