    My experience with him was like working with Doctor Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Before my surgery he was so kind and concerned. He had convinced me that I had to have surgery.Seven days after surgery he switched to crazy in my opinion. I was in extreme pain after having three discs fuzzed. He was screaming at me and calling me a drug addict.When I ask Him if he even looked at my chart,because he had never prescribed me any drugs ever! (even after surgery), he went went ballistic! Horrible Doc! Run Away

    He was the most unprofessional Doctor I ever met. He was rude, aggressive, badgering, and treated me like a piece of dirt under his foot. Do I recommend him? NO!!!!!

    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
