One of the best doctors I have ever had! He does not believe in sugar coating his advice. If something needs to be done, he will tell you and not beat around the bush. He is very friendly and caring. As a fellow Army Paratrooper Veteran, he understands the special issues associated with that type of service. He will always look for the underlying issue and not just treat the symptoms. I highly recommend him as your primary care physician. 5 stars are not enough.

I have lived many places and Dr. Pappas and his staff at Magnolia are simply the best I've seen. Both he and the staff care, are efficient, wise, dedicated, take their jobs seriously, and are simply fabulous at what they do. Very blessed to have been under their care. I have had to move away and it is so hard to find a physician and staff like this! Whenever I need to reach back for records they continue to treat me with the utmost care and respect. I wish I could take them with me where ever I go!

I don't know. Maybe I have been spoiled by my former Doctor, maybe not. Dr Pappas may be a very good Doctor, but for me not so much. I have come to expect a certain level of service that Dr. Pappas doesn't deliver (for me). When I told him my feet have been hurting for months, I expected him to at the very least look at them. His course if treatment was, walk it off. As it turns out, after going to a podiatrist I have a pretty bad case of arthritis in both feet. A few other concerns are he " doesn't " treat this or that but will refer you to a specialist in a heartbeat. If all I'm going to receive is a referral, I'll just cut out the middleman, make my own appointment and save the copays.

I wish I could leave him 10 stars! He paid close attention to my symptoms, listened to me attentively and guided me to do what I needed to. I had peculiar symptoms, but he never gave up and we found out the problem and I am alive today because of it. He truly cares about his patients. I ought to know...I am one. I am very thankful to Dr. Pappas and his amazing staff who always make me feel welcomed and cared for. His clinic is always clean and I appreciate that.

If you’re looking for a Dr. and nurses that care for health & well being, Dr. Chris Pappas and nurses Allison & Michelle are the ones. They give exemplary service to their patients. Dr. Pappas is always professional and has a great sense of humor. When you are concerned with a health problem, he starts asking a lot of questions to find the solution. He has a great back ground in medicine. He has served our country and helped many people. I highly recomend him.

5 Stars is just not enough! I can truly say that I owe my life to Dr Pappas and his ability to pick up on warning signs that were leading to a life changing(more like life ending) event. His exam determined that I was a very likely candidate for a major coronary event. He was able to connect me with Cardiologist that found out that I had 99% blockage & it wasn’t going to heal itself. Had a triple bypass 2 days later. If not for Dr Pappas - well who knows. To me,he’s the best! Every day is a gift

Dr. Pappas is incredibly easy to work with and his diet and general wellness instructions have thoroughly helped me with treating a long standing issue and generally improving my life. He is respectful and professional and the nurse staff who work with him are all fantastic. The best part is I'm comfortable from the minute I walk in the door till when I leave.

Finally, a doctor that is listening to me and hearing all I say instead of jumping on the first thing I say. He is working with me and I don't feel like just person who complains. He, also, is working with us as a family. He believes what goes on in the family also affects our health. I am, at this point, so very pleased with his staff as well as his care for me and my husband.

Outstanding. Dr. Chris Pappas and his team at Magnolia Medical were outstanding in taking care of me. They needed to expedite evaluations and ensured my insurance company was in sync with all of the prescribed procedures. He is extremely knowledgeable, thorough, and explains all of the medical jargon which anyone can understand. As a family physician, he is definitely focused on a health/wellness philosophy. Also, his two assistants, Michelle and Allison, were awesome with coordination.

I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Pappas all the time to friends. Dr. Pappas saved my life 2 different times now. It's not often you have a doctor that goes up and beyond the call of duty to help their patients any more. However, Dr. Pappas really does and has for me on more that 1 account. His bedside manor is patient and kind. Just what you would want as well in a great doctor. My family and I, Thank God often for bring Dr. Pappas into our lives as our family doctor.

I have to say that the doctor patient relationship that I have with Dr. Pappas is the best that I have had with any doctor. When I initially came to him I was a complete mess and have even gone through the death of my wife to cancer. He has been more than compassionate. He explained things in a way that is eazy to understand. I recomened him to everyone I know.

Chris has made the Doctor's requirement, for a healthy 60 y.o., a gentle and easy experience. He is always kind and compassionate, listens and hears, and never makes me feel he is rushed. I have not had a lot of trust in MDs in the past, but I trust Chris to keep me informed and aware of how I am doing and hope to have a very long relationship with this fine Physician. Thanks to the staff as well.

Dr. Pappas has been my primary care physician since mid-March, and I couldn't ask for a better doctor! Chris, as he prefers to be addressed, conducts himself professionally and respectfully,and he listens carefully to whatever concerns I might have. He answers all questions in a way that I can understand, and I feel like we're working together on my health issues and/or symptoms. He takes time with patients, and I never feel like I'm being rushed out of the office. In short, he's great!

My mom has been a pt w Dr Pappas for over a year. In Nov. her 2ndary insurance changed and his office refuses to process the her new 2ndary insurance even though they are required by federal law to do so because she is on social security disability. Now all of the sudden she has been conveniently dismissed for missing too many appts. Which is a flat out lie. They tell me the form we signed together giving me access to her medical records is blank. LIE! Please beware! They treated my Mom HORRIBLY
