Dr. was ok....his nurse was not. She was unprofessional & not helpful at all. I was prescribed a medication from the dr that required a pre-certification from my insurance company. Her response to me was that I needed to call the insurance co...that she doesn't do 1-800 numbers. I did resolve...more

Because of Dr. Pappas and his staff, I have a new right foot through surgery and after care. No pain...and I do believe when he is finished with me, I will be able to run. Can't wait for him to tackle my left foot!
