Help with painted cabinets, latex over oil...

I desperately need someone who knows a way to deal with kitchen cabinets that were originally painted with oil based paint and then painted over with latex. I've talked to several painters and the consensus is that I need new doors but I get varying opinions on the cabinet "boxes". They were site built in 1930 and "upgraded" doors added in the 50's. I would, literally, have to tear my whole kitchen apart to replace the cabinets. I don't want the paint to peel off (you can see it on the doors under the handles). Any and all advice is appreciated.
