Epilepsy

One of the best doctors in 33 years i have ever trusted and i would always go back and for sure recomend him to anyone , always took his time , never did anything with out running test or being sure what they had to do until they found the exact problem , took at least a year , i have had all these tests done before but no other doctor really looked into the situation very well just stuffed you with pills all the time that never worked , if possible i would always stay with him

I give this doctor an A++

Its really hard to find a good doctor out there, but Dr. Papanastassiou is one of the good ones by far. He is caring, compassionate and has an infectious enthusiasm for his work. He took the time to explain everything I needed to know . I came to him with lower back and sciatic pain from a herniated disc. I am happy to say I am on the road to feeling normal again. I highly recommend him!
