My experience goes back to 2002, after him changing hospital twice, he botched my surgery in both front and back. I got a life threatening infection in my back that turned into septicemia, 105F fever, 5 days in ICU, 6 pints of blood. I was also left with nerve damage and the largest incisional hernia my abdominal surgeon had ever seen. I still have broken hardware in my lower back, and have had 2 repair surgeries on my hernias, and still require another surgery. I am much worse now than before.

I cannot say but the worst experience ever, he made everything sound like it was a good surgery for me and that I was a good candidate. he basically butchered me leaving me with an awful infection and lied, he is So Rude, he screams at you for no reason. I definitely feel he hates his profession it seems that he needs to retire. No doctor should ever leave there patient in the hospital for weeks and not visit them or call them at all. Even the hospital said What A horrible doctor he is. Bad MD.

My experience with him was like working with Doctor Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Before my surgery he was so kind and concerned. He had convinced me that I had to have surgery.Seven days after surgery he switched to crazy in my opinion. I was in extreme pain after having three discs fuzzed. He was screaming at me and calling me a drug addict.When I ask Him if he even looked at my chart,because he had never prescribed me any drugs ever! (even after surgery), he went went ballistic! Horrible Doc! Run Away

He was the most unprofessional Doctor I ever met. He was rude, aggressive, badgering, and treated me like a piece of dirt under his foot. Do I recommend him? NO!!!!!

Dr. Pappas is compassionate person with a heart & soul. He fights hard against these crooked workman's comp insurance companies that refuse treatment for the injured. I suffered a spinal injury working construction. If it not for Dr. Pappas i would be in a wheelchair withering away in self pity with a boat load of drugs. For the last 15 years i have been living a very productive life working and growing my own organic garden year after year without drugs.My life has been restore.Thank you Pappas
