Best doctor I’ve seen in a long time. I didn’t wait long, he took his time to do a thorough assessment,gave great referrals, but most importantly listened to me and believed what I said. I made an appointment last minute with first available provider so I wasn’t expecting much but couldn’t be more pleased with the level of care he provided even compared to doctors I’ve waited months to see. I will continue to see this doctor; it makes a world of a difference feeling I have an educated professional on my side.

He was very professional and straight to the point. No nonsense, just gave me a physical and sent me on my way. Gave a prescription when I asked for it with no problems at all.

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 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.

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.
