Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Papavasiliou "Dr. Papavasiliou's practice philosophy is to present patients with the different treatment options and then help guide them through the healthcare system. "Sometimes that involves surgery, but more often than not it involves non-surgical treatment," he said. "We're trying to guide them through the decision-making process, and help them choose the treatment option that is best for them and their family.""

When I explained the need for a light back brace, he said he didn't believe in them...that they were a crutch. That was over 2 yrs ago. My primary said he saw the need for one. Spinal Stenosis is moderate to severe. I just cancelled him today, Sept. 14, 2017, as my doctor.
