Dr. Papas is the best, this is my second total knee replacement and I wouldn't go anywhere else. His bedside manner is awesome and he is very caring about his patients.

September 06, 2017

Dr. Papas saw me right away due to an injury to my right ringer finger. I thought my finger might have been broken, however, after x-rays, he determined it was not broken, I injured the tendon. He put me in a splint for the next 6 weeks and I went right back to work.

Well satisfied with staff and particularly with the knee replacement surgery performed by Dr. Papas. I had no pain or discomfort and healing has proceeded rapidly and well.

I received first rate care from Dr. Papas and all others on his staff with whom I dealt. I would refer others to him for sure.

The doctor was very informative and caring. I was nervous about my condition and the doctor was very reassuring that my worst fears were not so. I was very relieved. The nurse was very patient with me and calmed me while giving me joint injections.

Dr. Papas and his staff were first-rate. everyone was courteous and efficient. Dr. Papas was always there early to see me at the hospital. He was always very straightforward, precise and clear in his conversations with me on the medical situation - always fighting to see that the urgent care I needed at the time was going to be provided. You always felt he was in your corner and had your back. Medical needs can often impact quality of life - it's comforting to know a professional group of people such as this are fighting for you.
