Dr. Dean P Pappas has the following 4 specialties
- Colon and Rectal Surgery
Colorectal surgeons are doctors who perform surgery in order to correct problems with the anus, rectum or colon. These physicians perform colonoscopies, and other diagnostic procedures, in order to identify any issues that require surgical intervention. They then determine what type of surgical procedure would be best. The specialists also care for these patients post-operation to ensure proper healing and recovery.
A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Self-verified patient of Dr. Dean P Pappas - Posted on July 15th, 2017
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

Top Notch Dr.
Self-verified patient of Dr. Dean P Pappas - Posted on October 27th, 2016
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.
