    Dr. Pappas is compassionate person with a heart & soul. He fights hard against these crooked workman's comp insurance companies that refuse treatment for the injured. I suffered a spinal injury working construction. If it not for Dr. Pappas i would be in a wheelchair withering away in self pity with a boat load of drugs. For the last 15 years i have been living a very productive life working and growing my own organic garden year after year without drugs.My life has been restore.Thank you Pappas
