About Gabriel Lupu, MD

I chose to become a doctor because medicine combined my love for science and problem solving with helping patients to navigate their illness. In applying specialized knowledge and training I am able to collaborate with a team and help the sick feel better, which is the greatest reward.

I chose to become a doctor because medicine combined my love for science and problem solving with helping patients to navigate their illness. In applying specialized knowledge and training I am able to collaborate with a team and help the sick feel better, which is the greatest reward. It also allows me to participate in clinical research to contribute to the greater scientific community. I approach a patient as a whole person and take pride in being an advocate for their needs while under my care. I aspire to take full ownership in understanding a case and figuring out the best plan of action collaboratively. Outside of work, I enjoy exercising, playing basketball, supporting local sports teams and my hometown Detroit teams. I like reading and writing creatively and taking care of my Labrador named Wallace.
