This isn't a practical medical center unless you have a lot of money at your disposal to spend on medical bills. I had an incident about two months ago involving my lawnmower. After my ER visit, I was recommended here by St. Alexius Medical Center (I believe they get some sort of kickback for that). I've had at least 6 visits with doctor Papierski including a nailbed surgery. At least 2 of my 6+ visits were completely unnecessary and included xrays just to tell me nothing's changed. I personall

I had the oddest and least helpful doctor visit of my life. He kept asking me if I thought I was going to die from my arm pain I guess. Saying I was too young to die. He barely looked at my arms and wrists, continuing to make bizzare comments. Said there's nothing that can be done. The nurse even looked really uncomfortable around him. Then they charged a ridiculous amount for educational materials I never received.

Dr. Papierski was the third hand specialist I have seen, after the others said I should "live with" my injury. (I have HMO, and was going through accepted doctors with the others. Dr. P happens to also be in my network.) He was able to do surgery, and I am very pleased with the results, not even two weeks out! I was impressed by how calm and unruffled he is. Great bedside manner, and very capable.

Dr. Papierski is an excellent hand surgeon. He performed surgery on my right hand to straighten my little finger and ring finger. I now have complete mobility of both fingers. He and his staff were always pleasant and caring, making sure that I understood each phase of the procedure.

Feb 11, 2017 I went to see Dr. Papierski for an unsuccessful severed tendon repaired at a different practice . I was very pleased not only with the surgical outcome but how I was taken care of throughout the process. Dr. Papierski and his staff are awesome including the phenomenal onsite physical therapy team. It is comforting to know I am in good hands with very knowledgeable and compassionate professionals. After two unrelated procedures this practice continues to exceed my expectations.

I try to make my appointments first of the day, when the Dr. is still on time. Yet, on 2 /3 visits, he was extremely late (90 minutes, and 30 minutes), and then I felt like he was rushing thru my visit. I had to remind him of my symptoms and things I"d tried, like he didn't even read my file before coming in. If I hadn't asked a ton of questions, I'm not sure he would've explained anything. He has this habit of fake smiling at the end of every sentence, which makes him seem very disingenuous.

He was thorough and knowledgeable took his time and explain different options for you and what to expect. You do not feel rushed or pushed into anything. He explains the anatomy of problem and the physiology of why you were having these issues. Then he looks at you utilizing a holistic medical approach. You come out feeling that he is in your corner and will do everything in his power to make you well
