I have known Dr. Pappas for about 26 years. He saved my life from what could have been colon cancer through the years. He is not only a highly skilled surgeon, but has the best bedside manner. He makes you feel comfortable and is absolutely the sweetest man. My entire family goes to him and I truly appreciate him and will thank him forever for his skills and heart.

I had an appointment for a colonoscopy on 5/13/16. I cancelled that appointment because when I called on 5/10/16 to ask how Dr. Pappas was doing my billing (Preventive or non preventive) the woman (Josephine) on the phone was super nice while in the background the billing clerk was so nasty all I heard was her yelling about what I was asking that I finally told Josephine to tell her she was a nasty B and to cancel my appointment because of how NASTY and RUDE she was. She should be fired.
