Care Philosophy

My goal with each patient encounter is not just to find what's wrong and fix it, rather to listen to their concerns, educate and engage them in the formulation and execution of the treatment plan. Knowing what's important for them is important for me.

I treat everybody like family, strive to provide best care and have happy patients with or without surgery.  If they do require surgery my specialized training and expertise maximized their outcome.

As an out-of-state visitor in the area for a short visit, I experienced a severe wrist fracture and contacted Florida Ortho Inst. Dr. Pappou saw me on short-notice, fully informed me of the nature of the injury, and treatment alternatives. He did surgery as soon as possible so I could return home. He was very professional and explained everything to my husband and I before and after surgery. We were impressed by his courtesy, professionalism, and confidence in a successful outcome.

Dr. Pappou reconstructed my dislocated thumb three months ago. Under his excellent care, my thumb has healed and feels wonderful. He is a gifted surgeon and a very nice, very patient, and understanding man. I will recommend him to anyone I know who needs hand surgery.
