Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Pappou "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."
