Patient Comments (1)
in Littleton, CO |
Dr Papillion is without a doubt the best orthopedic Dr in Denver! I can attest to that after visiting countless drs who diagnosed me with everything from a dermatology knee issue to a tumor in the knee. He listens and genuinely cares about his patients and offers a breadth of knowledge and understanding of the human body. He correctly diagnosed me (without an MRI or xray) with a dislocated patella which was shown to be dislocated even when laying on the surgery bed unconscious.
