Dr. Papas is a doctor i trust. I recommend him to anyone i know needing any type of knee work. He always takes time with his patients and makes sure you understand.

I felt that the doctor was rushed. He interrupted me when I spoke and I felt as though he just wanted to get to the next patient. I visited another doctor for the same issue closer to the time of onset. he spent over an our with me, moving my arm and texting the pain. he explained in detail what he thought the issue was and possible treatments. I did not get this kind of care with Dr. Papas. I was actually going to call to see if my next appointment to discuss my MRI could be with a different doctor.

he seemed like he was intrested in what i had to say about my problem . not like my other doctor that just wants to replace my bad knees and didn't offer any other help .

this was my first visit to this provider, originally it was for a second opinion - but I was so impressed by him, the answers I received and the time he took to spend with me

While I believe that Dr. Papas is very good at what he does, I found both of my appointments with him to be rather quick and not as descriptive as I would have liked when information was relayed to me. I think his personality is just not as personable as some of the other providers, but perhaps that is more a generational issue for him as he is older. He referred me to another doctor, and I did appreciate that as my condition was abnormal but fell outside of his scope of practice. Overall he is probably a great surgeon, just not who I would pick for myself had I needed to stay with this practice.
