Dr. George N Papaliodis has the following 2 specialties
An ophthalmologist has the training to do much more than just prescribe glasses. They are physicians specially trained to diagnose and treat disorders of the eyes and vision. These doctors are experts on the complicated anatomy of the eye and are trained to treat eye diseases through both medical and surgical methods.
Some common conditions that ophthalmologists treat are cataracts, glaucoma, strabismus, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and amblyopia. In addition, ophthalmologists can provide prescriptions for eye glasses and contact lenses and perform LASIK surgery and other corrective surgeries for refractive errors like myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness), astigmatism and presbyopia.
- 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.

We went to see George N Papaliodis for serious eye inflammation problems and the suggested to get the blood work done to get the prescription order. Once we gave blood we waited for more than a month for the results, constantly calling their office. NOBODY never respond back to the left messages. After more than a month, they say that the required blood test was not done and we won't get prescription until we do blood work again. We went to our nearest lab to get the blood work again & they faxed the results right away, which George N Papaliodis office staff lost it. They have worst customer service to the response towards patients. Stay away from this doctor and their services. We are never ever going to visit them again. WHAT A WASTE OF TIME
I am impressed with Dr. Papaliodis because of his vast knowledge of care and treatment of inflammatory eye disease. A visit with this doctor leaves one feeling that you've met both a caring and competent professional. What's even more impressive is that Dr. Papaliodis is a relatively young man who has achieved great heights in a short time. I would HIGHLY (FIVE STARS PLUS) recommend this doctor to any individual with inflammatory eye disease or related issues.
My daughter had uveitis (HLA-B27 associated) and she was referred to Mass. Eye and Ear Infirmary where she say Dr. Papaliodis. He is absolutely excellent! I would highly recommend him. He was easy to talk to, took all the time we needed for questions and answers, and was great at every follow-up visit she had.
Feeling comfortable with a doctor is very important to me. From the second I met Dr. Papaliodis I felt confident and totally comfortable.
