What People Say About Dr. George Papanicolaou, DO

This guy is a kook. Almost killed my mother. Yelled at her for showing up without an appointment when she was crying and near death from a misdiagnosis. Said he didn’t want to send her to Boston to another doctor because it would effect his taxes/ insurance negatively. He became a doctor for the money, not to help people

Dr. Papanicolau has been my primary care doctor for the past few years but it wasn't until I contracted Lyme's Disease that I experienced his engaged, compassionate and dedicated care first hand. He has been an expert when I need him to be and a humble collaborator as we work through new solutions together. He listens as well as he leads. I could not be happier with my care or feel more supported than I do. He is truly a dedicated and caring doctor.

My children & I have been patients at Cornerstone FP for a number of years now. Dr. P has become more like a friend than a doctor. Both he & my NP, Susie Clare, take the time to know what is going on in my life, ask questions, listen & provide me with care that makes sense. They have taken very good care of me...I trust them. The staff, including Dr. P's wife, Michelle, Linda (who puts up with all my crazy requests), Jaci & everyone at Cornerstone are friendly, competent - & my kids love them!

This is my second year seeing Dr. George as a patient. I'm enjoying his concierge model and have even texted him while on the other side of the country for a concern I had. He immediately sent a prescription to the nearest pharmacy. It gives me much comfort to know he is only a text away 24/7. Dr. George is very caring and digs deep to find out what is going on in your body, not just treating the symptoms. He's willing to take a traditional medical approach or use homeopathic remedies.

Dr. Papanicolaou will not just “slap a pill on it.” He really listens, asks questions, and takes the time over a period of months to holistically diagnose a given condition. I have only ever had pills thrown at me for my mental health and fatigue issues. Dr. P is helping me improve my diet and recommending whole food supplements to naturally get me going in the right direction for a lifetime. He really knows his stuff and can explain complex physiological functions in everyday terms.

Dr. Papanicolaou has changed my outlook on health care providers. The time taken with me during each visit is not rushed, I feel secure in his thorough evaluation. He cares for his patients not only medically but spiritually and mentally as well. Considering all of life affects our bodies. I appreciate the staff and their level of care given to each patient.

I have been seen Dr. Papanicolaou for the past 20 years. I have had excellent care until he moved into the new facility in Rowley. He does take time with his patients, yet this leaves one waiting an extra 1/2 hour for the scheduled appointment. Now he does not see his patients unless you pay an absurd amount for specialized care. His assistants are great, the office staff makes you feel like an inconvenience and they do not take care if requests in a timely fashion.

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Papanicolaou! I have been struggling for two years with serious health issues, and Dr. P is the first physician to actually spend the time and mental effort to hear my story, and start putting the pieces together. He is friendly, easy to talk to, straightforward and caring. He is wonderful with my boys (8 & 10), and spent 3 hours with me, during my 1 hour initial visit. He seems to truly care about his patients. I'm so happy we found him!

I do not have enough good things to say. After decades with another physician I had to find someone who could really take the time to dig deep and help me. The business model at this practice allows the time needed to get to the bottom of one's health issues and is a total body and mind approach to health. I could not be happier. It is a process and we are working through it. For the first time in years I have real Hope of getting well. Grateful is such an inadequate word!!
