Dr. Poppas provided exceptional care to our son. He thought through complicated issues, took the time to discuss with us, and ultimately performed a successful surgery.Our visits over a year gave us many opportunities to meet with Dr. Poppas and his wonderful nurse Denise. It is exceedingly rare to find such a fine surgeon also with such a superb bedside manner. We truly could not have been in better hands. We would recommend Dr. Poppas to anyone lucky enough to have access to his excellent care

Dr Poppas was referred to us by our pediatrician when our son was born. We needed an emergency evaluation for him and were told that Dr. Poppas was on vacation and wouldn't be available for weeks. 4 months later we got a phone call that he was ready to schedule an appointment. Ridiculous.

My wife, son, and I sat in Dr. Poppas' Westchester office for an hour after our scheduled appointment time, waiting to be seen. Finally, we grew tired of waiting and left. That's no way to run a business or a medical practice.

Dr. Poppas is incredibly brilliant, caring and a truly talented physician and surgeon. I could not say enough about him. He is a rare find and a true gentleman. He has superb follow up and follow through. His longtime office staff are great as well. If you have come across him as an option of who to see, count your blessings.
