Very understanding and professional. Takes time to provide additional guidance and referrals as necessary.
Dr. George is awesome!!
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.
He's a great doctor. He always takes his time and is very responsive. He wants to insure you are feeling better and that he is there if you need anything.
Pretty typical doctors office visit. Prefilled all of my forms before arriving and still ending up waiting almost an hour.
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.
Great service. The more mature wiser docs are always the best
I really hate going to the doctor, so when I give someone 5 stars it means they were FANTASTIC. I really liked Dr. Papas.
Very nice and comfortable first time experience.
Very attentive and answered the few questions I had. Was late from the hospital which is why my wait time was so long, but I was still out of the office within an hour of arriving.
Dr. Papas is very professional and cares about his patients. He answered all my questions clearly and addressed any issue I had. I highly recommend him as as primary care physician.
We had a lot to talk about, but Dr. Papas did an exemplary job of attending to all the details.

Great experience. Will most definitely be using Dr.Paps as my primary care physician.
Very nice, listened to my concerns and answered all of my questions.
I got really lucky on this site, Dr. Papas was the first Dr I chose and I feel very comfortable with him, he is intuitive yet firm and shows genuine concern no matter what the issue is!
Great doctor,sat there and explained what he was prescribing me and what it did. Really nice and helpful aswell as the staff
He listened very well and was very thorough in understanding all my symptoms. He had ideas and new forms of treatments for me I had not yet tried which was very helpful and encouraging.
Dr Papas is an excellent Primary Care Doctor. His staff is very professional and he is a very caring doctor.
He was thorough and easy to talk to. Took his time and addressed every concern.
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 minutes for 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.
I liked him. he was straight forward and showed interest, knowledge and concern for me and my reasons for the visit.
Very thorough and helpful.
Dr. Papas was very friendly and welcoming. He was interested in learning about me and was knowledgeable. He was thorough and very helpful, I would definitely recommend him
Excellent, met with him before he saw my Mom and he listened to what I had to say and took it into account when making his diagnosis.
Dr. Papas was great! He actually seemed to care about the things I was experiencing and offered good actual suggestions where other doctors just throw drugs at you. He really seemed interested in what was going on with my who health!
It was great! He eased my fears and suggested things I should do.
Highly accommodating, through
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.
He doesnt have all of the answers but then again I dont know anyone that does. He sure is helpful and has great staff. Im able to set up up appointments pretty quickly and easily with him too...
Very nice and helpful!
It was great! He really listened to my health concerns, and helped to resolve my current problems. I would definitely recommend him. He is a helpful, knowledgeable doctor.
I like his approach.
I was impressed and pleased. Finding a good doctor is always a crap shoot so I was happy that the office was clean, the staff was professional, efficient and friendly, and the doctor was very professional, friendly and he answered all of my questions. I would recommend this office to my friends.
Professional and friendly doctor, got in right away, was able to schedule an appointment quickly, office staff are all great, use the latest tech tools, great referral network. Go see him!
I felt very comfortable with him, and he didn't take a lot of time, just got right down to business. I received a referral quick too. Love this doctor.
Dr. Papas is a caring, concerned doctor.
I would highly recommend Dr. Papas to anyone looking for a Primary Care physician in the SD area. First, there was almost zero waiting time at the office. From the waiting room, to being seen by the Nurse/PA, to seeing Dr. Papas, to then getting my blood drawn, everything flowed smoothly and efficiently. During my appointment, Dr. Papas took the time to really listen to me. He was kind, compassionate, and knowledgeable. And he even dictated his notes for my record while I was present to make sure he had captured everything correctly. I just moved here and feel lucky to have found a great doctor already. (Thanks, ZocDoc!)
The entire staff was extremely courteous and professional and downright generous. From the front desk to the exam room I was made to feel very comfortable and was treated like an old friend. Dr. Papas asked all of the right questions and made sure that I understood his recommendations, notes, and diagnosis.
Dr. Papas was personable and friendly, answered all my questions and didn't seem rushed. Overall good experience and I was out of the office with everything I needed in under an hour.
Good medical service.
Dr Papas was very friendly and clear. He was not rushing and I got the answers to my questions.
He really takes the time to help you out. The nurse and receptionist were very nice and pleasant.
My appointment was at 2, and I was a first time patient. I filled out my paperwork, turned it in to the front desk, and was seen 2 minutes after that. No long wait in the room like some places. Dr. Papas came in, and was very friendly and listened to me (most doctors don't care). I was out of the office with a prescription for what i needed by 2:35. A 35 minute appointment in total, AND i was a new patient. That's almost unheard of. And the staff is GREAT!
He was awesome
