Shawnalee is so much fun to speak to when I schedule patients. She makes the whole experience so enjoyable.

in working for a family practice this is a doctor we refer to very often. He has a great repore with the physicians and works well with patients it seems. Shawnalee Wilborn is someone I prefer to speak to in terms of communication and scheduling. She is excellent at what she does and makes the experience joyful and easy.

From the first visit for painful knee, thru total knee replacement, Dr. Pappademus and his staff have been wonderful. Highly recommend him.
Haysville , KS |
Absolutely love this doctor and his staff, very friendly, would recommend him to others. I went in for a total hip replacement and had no issues with the surgery, I was up walking the next day and the hip pain was gone. I'm 53 and wished I done this along time ago, I need to have the other done so I will definitely be going back to him.

I had 2 arthroscopic knee surgeries from Dr. Pappademos. The first did not go as planned as I had another tear which was felt immediately after surgery. The second was to take out the entire meniscus but when I woke from surgery, I was told it wasn't needed. Since that surgery I have been in more pain than the first. Trying to see the Dr. resulted in waiting for over an hour on two consecutive appointments. I felt like he was too busy to tend to patients and I would take my health elsewhere.

The best..hands down! He replaced my right knee in 2008. I have such a better life now. He was great and very personable. His staff and personal Asst., were A plus good. Thank you Dr Pappa... I still love you and your staff.
in Peck, KS |
The ONLY doctor I would have do my knees or hips. I really like him and his staff. My knee went very well, and I did great. My 88 yr old mother had two knees done too, and he did a great job. He does my treatment on my right knee, and replaced my left. Great doctor and great staff!!! Can't say enough nice things about them. I researched doctors before I had my knee replaced, and therapists all said Dr. Pappademos had great outcomes.
