in St Simons Island, GA |
My experience with Dr. Pappas has been excellent. As have the assist from the nursing & administrative staff. Dr. Pappas has been able to control the severity & duration of my headaches & frequency of my seizures. Dr. Pappas is also very thorough in looking for causes/contributors to my condition, even as far as texting for pinched nerves. I like Dr. Pappas and would not hesitate to recommend Jim.

Dr. Pappas has been treating my cluster headaches for several years now. Cluster headaches, otherwise known as "suicide" headaches, are so painful as to be debilitating and are very tricky and difficult to treat. With his expertise, the treatment I have received from Dr. Pappas has always worked in spite of my being a " challenging case" (his words). He and his staff are very caring people who have always went the extra mile to help me. I recommend him to anyone suffering from headaches.

The staff is always very sweet and helpful! Dr. Pappas always thoroughly explains my condition to me.

Dr. Pappas has an office staff that are rude and never answer the phone as Sylvia said we are too busy. They don't listen to voicemail which most it goes there. I left a message I would not be there my ride didn't show up. Charge $25! Talked to Sylvia about my calling in, she said since this is your first time I'll let business know. I just got another bill! I have actually saw Dr. Pappas for maybe 5 minutes each visit. The last visit never saw him, just his nurse, charged for visit $149.00
Hinesville, GA |
His staff is not friendly and not professional. They travel so it is very hard to get in contact with their office and they don't return messages in a timely manner. I am outraged and even when I voice my concern it still is put on the back burner.
in Jesup , GA |
Doctors now have too many locations and it is a hassle to get any information. Very little time spent with patients. It's all about the money.
in Hinesville, GA |
I have had not issues with Dr. Pappas, he has always been up front and straight with me. I find that he has helped me with my condition very much and I would recommend him to anyone!
