I have never had anything but a very good experience with Doctor Papas or anyone on his staff. I have always been very well cared for and very well treated. I have nothing but respect, admiration, and total confidence in his entire team.

Dr Papas was friendly and listened my symptoms.m AFterDr Papas was friendly and listened to me as I told him my symptoms. He ordered a shot after looking at the extras. He said it would elievate the pain and should it not in two to four weeks, he would order an MRI. It was a pleasant visit.

When I arrived to my appointment the office did not have any of my x-rays, MRI results, or reports related to my condition. I had to wait almost an hour to be seen because of this. also, when the doctor came in to see me he was confused about when the last time I had an x-ray or MRI and did not know that the images were not at his office. He also admitted that he hadn't read the reports, skimmed them in front of me, and then made recommendations. He was also terse with my wife when she asked him questions.

I was worried about the surgery but after talking to the Dr I felt comfortable that he was doing what was best for me and my situation to get me back on my feet asap. i was really impressed that the Dr called me on a Saturday, it really showed me that he is a concerned and caring professional, thank you for the good care.

papas is a great guy. not conceited, although very able surgeon. he's a minimalist, like most surgeons, but he is friendly and spends adequate time assessing every problem. he works well with this PAs and they're also very helpful.
