What People Say About Dr. Michael Papalian, MD
Reply
Dr. Papalian stitched my 16-year old son's face above his lip on the left side up to his nostril. He did this in the emrgency room at Sequoia Hospital as he was the plastic surgeon on call. The cut went through to the inside of the mouth. Dr. Papalian delicately did 12 fine stitches inside the wound and then 11 fine stitches on the outside. He put my son at ease with his humor but was serious at the same time. Beautiful results - minimal scarring. We are very grateful to him.
