I love Dr Papas!!! He's a caring professional. I had a horrible cough for the last 9 days and today I decided I better go see him. I'm glad I did. He prescribed just the right medication and I'm starting to feel better. Thank you Dr Papas!!!

I thought he was very old school, but in a good way. He asked a lot of queations and wanted to know every detail. I haven't had a doctor in a while that wanted to know every little detail, just the major ones. Highly recommend.

He was very personable, thorough and professional. He dictated his notes while I was in the exam room asking me if it sounded okay to ensure he covered everything and the notes were to my satisfaction, which I thought was nice.He went through my history and wanted to cover all bases for treatment for me. I had a very positive experience with him.

A very thorough and interested physician, Dr.Papas has a excellent demeanor and bedside manner. He strikes me as knowledgeable and up-to-date. He is generous with his time yet both punctual and concise, ready to listen and to explain matters.Furthermore, he is clearly conservative about inappropriate use of opioid pain meds, which I find so commendable. I would recommend him highly.

It was my first time here and I had a pleasant experience. I had to fill out some paperwork, but after that they got me into the room right away and I only had to wait about 10 - 15 minutesfor Dr. Papas. He kept the visit professional and took what I said seriously. I may have liked him to be a little more personable, but I respected the way he handled himself and my issues.

The visit with Dr Papas went well. My blood pressure is always high when visiting any medical offices but i felt pretty calm once the appointment started. Very thorough with the exam I needed and the nursing staff was very nice.I had my blood drawn (second time in my life because I HATE needles) and they took good care of me.
