Extremely knowledgeable. Often, especially in such complex and heady specialties, a patient can feel like a puzzle piece/pawn on a game board. Dr. Pappas has the heady intellect while still valuing the patient and exuding a large dose of empathy and understanding. He talks to you, not his computer or his "list". He can boil complex issues down efficiently and easily to address diagnostic and practical matters so that you understand what is going on in your body. Super nice guy. Highly reco
