Santa Clara, CA |
Bad time. He was not focused on me.
Orlando, FL |
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.
New Smyrna Beach, FL |
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.

Dr Papa saved my foot I had one nightmare after another until I was lucky enough to be referred to him.
Winter Park, FL |
Great Doc!! Dr. Papa is very detail oriented & exceptionally knowledgeable. On my first visit, he took time to explain my problems & all my surgical and nonsurgical options. I returned to Dr. Papa when I realized that I required surgery & again he took time to review all options & I decided on surgery- Could not be happier with the results! I know now why many of my friends (doctors included) said he is Great! An MD with fellowship training along with his passion & pride have given me life!

Poor bedside manner. Refuses to listen to or help patients.

Dr papa did not focus on appointment, he did the same thing on my last visits reason was to see what is the progression of my charcot foot and possible referral for shoes to be made, he did not do that, He asked why it is a year since last visit and I had to remind him that he requested a yearly visit Before entering the exam room he was walking up and down the corridor dictating in a little recorder in a loud voice for everybody to hear I find him rude and complete waste of time
in Goffstown, NH |
There may be a foot/ankle surgeon equal to Dr. Papa, but there is no one better. From my initial meeting through surgery, Dr. Papa has been the consummate professional. Dr. Papa is, arguably, the best foot/ankle surgeon practicing. Thank you, Dr. Papa.
