Extremely inefficient office. I waited over an hour past my appointment time. Staff did not know why he was running late.No explanation, no update. I finally had to leave as I had driven a long way to see Dr. Papa. You might be better off going in as a walk-in than making an appointment. I won’t be returning.

Years of long-standing disease had resulted in significant bilateral foot pain and deformities. Dr. Papa carefully explained all options and reviewed the X-rays with me. He listened to my concerns and patiently answered questions. His calm assurance and professionalism helped me to know surgery was the correct option for me. He corrected the deformities and restored function of, first one foot, and then the other two years later. I could not be more grateful! He is a talented & gifted surgeon!

Dr. Papa is a very skilled surgeon and completely restructured my foot. He explained the surgery and follow up in detail and I felt comfortable and at ease throughout the entire process. Little to no pain following surgery.

I have contacted Jewett several times to ask if Dr John Papa would accept a patient under the VA Veterans Choice Program. None of my calls have been returned. Veterans have served their country, even died for it, and fought for your freedom. I can't rate any Dr highly that does not accept veterans as patients. I would be willing to change this rating if Dr. Jablonski would accept a patient under the VA Veterans Choice Program.

Dr. Papa was conservative in his care approach & took time to explain recommendations & options. I felt comfortable & understood each step along the way. My procedure went better than expected. Jewett Orthopaedic Center is professional & well thought out with consideration for patient management & flow. It was far from the usual - hand the patient a clipboard from behind a glass door. Each person in his office was personable, professional &courteous and seems to truly care.

He was very rude. Didn't listen to my ongoing issues with my ankle. I understand he is a great surgeon but i prefer my doctors to have a soul. He is very uncaring, and because of that i will seek treatment elsewhere. Not to mention i had to wait over half an hour for him to come in the exam room only for him to almost belittle me.

I have never been so degraded by a doctor in my entire life. He did not look at any of my records/x-rays before my visit and treated me with complete disrespect. I felt as if I'd been raped after leaving his office. He might be a good surgeon, I have no idea, and I never will know because his bedside manner was so completely awful that I would NEVER go back to him for anything, much less surgery.
