Patient Comments (2)
in Metairie, LA |
Do not Trust Dr. Nicholas Demitri Pappas III, MD Dr. Pappas works all so at University Medical Center and he hides won't see his patients. It took me three visits to get him to come out of hiding to see me. He treats patients there as a number not a patient. I got a call from a doctor not him that he was not doing my surgery when he said he was going to do it. Void this doctor.

He performed a hand surgery on me which was not successful. During my follow up appointment I asked if I should use an antibiotic cream or anti fungal cream on the nail while it was heading and he said no. Just keep it dry and let it grow back. It grew back with another fungus. When I called to have him call in an RX for either a stronger cream or an oral medication, he refused to unless I paid to come back in to see him. His nurse actually said to me, this is a business you know.
