Condescending

Vitals, I'm happy to know that your organization exists. You serve as a great tool for helping people find the BEST doctors available. I've never written a review before, but I felt this was really important. The physicians skills are paramount, however, caring and compassion run a close second. As a post surgical patient, I found myself in excruciating pain on a Friday night. I stuck it out through the weekend and called the colon rectal surgeons office first thing on Monday. I didn't hear back from the office all day. I called back and spoke with the answering service, asking for a doctor to call me back. Dr. Pampas returned my call. After I explained my situation to doctor Pampas, he then asked me, "you do know this is an emergency number don't you?" I said "yes, I've been in agony for three days. I consider that an emergency." He said he was not familiar with my case, and he will discuss it with my surgeon within the practice. He totally dismissed me and my pain. I do not consider that kind and compassionate. He was uncaring and condescending. I would recommend seeing ANY other doctor EXCEPT for Dr. Dean Pampas

He was extremely dismissive of my problem and I had to seek another opinion

This doctor was very dismissive of my problem and I went for a second opinion as a result. The second doctor ordered an MRI and gave me specific information about the issue and my surgical options. I feel like seeing this guy was a total waste of time.

Top Notch Dr.

I first saw Dr. Pappas in the spring of 2015. The Dr. who had done my colonoscopy had recommended that I see a surgeon Asap. Of course hearing you need see a surgeon set off alarms. When I saw Dr. Pappas a few weeks later, I saw that he was not a "cut first" surgeon. He recommended several changes to my diet and that alone relieved 95% of my issues. While I know that in the future surgery is still a possibility, I know I will be in good hands with Dr. Pappas. His staff and facility are top notch as well.
