Dr. Rupard was excellent. He took his time explaining my condition in a way that was understandable. He recommended radiation and explained why he thinks radiation would help me. I felt comfortable with him. Thankful.

HAVE BEEN coming to this hospital since I was married (1965) and very pleased with the cancer center and all the people involved with my treatment especially at the start of my cancer the 1st time - my nurse navigator, *Donna Behun who guided me on everything & helped me with chemo supplies and all the right start.
Patient Comment May 2019
A wonderful professional and dedicated doctor. Fortunately my strange biopsy diagnosis ended up, after 6 months) to be cancer free. The final diagnosis was wonderful news for the doctor and for me. Instead of the possibility of non Hodgkin's or Hodgkin's cancer, the final ruling was just an insect bite. A great deal of time and effort on the doctor's part, along with a team, studied this usual T cell, E cell, and the results were the BEST. Dr. Eric Rupard is a true professional. possibility
Patient Comment April 2019
Dr. Erik Rupard is, by far, one of the best doctors I have ever had. He is very down to earth, caring, compassionate, and has a wonderful bedside manner. He is the kind of doctor that ALL doctors should strive to be like. The office staff is also wonderful. They are friendly and caring. The Medical Assistant I had, on the day of my visit, was wonderful as well! I wish I would've asked her name because I wanted to call the office to let them know how great she was! She is a wonderful role model for all Medical Assistants! I can't say enough great things about this provider and his staff!
