It has been over a year since my bilateral breast reconstruction. My results are better than I expected. I am a nurse and was a patient at the homecare agency where I work. My co workers were impressed with his work and commented that Dr P is an artist.

I am beyond pleased with the results of my bilateral breast reduction. First and foremost the post op pain was minimal; I am not one to have a high pain tolerance. A week later my drains were removed and I resumed my life, with precaution of course. I am now 4 weeks post op and the incisions look fabulous, my nipples are proportional and symmetrical and they didn't lose any sensation. All and all I couldn't be happier with my results. If you're looking for a perfectionist, he's your guy !

Dr. Papanicolaou was involved in doing repair of a very difficult wound on my lower front shin, a very large area not easily closed thru plastic surgery, skin graft and wound care. He has that unique blend of clinical expertise, precise clinical judgement, empathy and great interpersonal skills. He did a wonderful job resolving the wound in spite of many challenges. I could not be more impressed nor more appreciative of the care he provided me and will always be indebted to him for it.

Dr. Papanicolaou is a wonderful doctor! He truly cares about his patients and he is one of the most compassionate doctors I have ever met. He answered any and all of my questions and I trusted him before, during and after surgery. My surgery went so amazingly well and I am so happy with the results! I would recommend him to anyone!

Doctor P. is a 5 star doctor!!!! I had a basal cell lesion removed from my lower left eyelid which required a skin graft to close the wound. Doctor P. did an outstanding job of reconstructing the eyelid and lower skin area near the eyeball. This was a very delegate area near the eye and DR P. did an exceptional job.

Went in for a consult related to a somewhat embarrassing birth defect. Dr. P came in took plenty of pictures, but never called back as promised with procedure options. He should be embarrassed for himself and his staff.

Dr. P was the emergency surgeon on duty when I can into the E.R. from a horrorific accident. He rebuilt the left side of my face just from my drivers license photo. Recovery was under quality care with minimal scarring. I was blessed and I believe he was as well. I should never have survived.

I was diagnosed with skin cancer on my back and was referred to Dr. P by my surgeon. He closed my incision so my scarring on my back would be minimal. Dr P did A phenomenal job at closing the incision with minimmal scarring. We chose to a skin flap and not a skin graft and I'm so glad I listened to his advice. His staff is awesome about answering any questions you have and will make time to see you if needed. I will use Dr P in the future if ever needed again and appreciated his professionalism
