Don’t know much about the Dr. but the clinic protocols smack of the middle ages. Be prpared to wait and wait and wait again! It’s no way to treat patients. Appointment times are meaningless.

I've seen Paparella for over 20 years. Without him I wouldn't have hearing at all. He not only treats me, but my children as well! Sometimes the wait time is long, he always fits me in his schedule when I'm in need, and they understand travel time. After reading other reviews, I ask that in all doctors keep in mind if you don't understand ask questions and if you have questions ask them! I've put my full trust in Dr.P and I'm one of his lifelong patients. I recommend him to everyone always.
