Patient

I have had Lyme's for a few months now and have been toggled through many doctors who I have felt weren't honestly caring about my condition. Dr Paparone is a doctor who truly cares about his patients and is dedicated to the job. I would refer him to anyone.

Excellent Physician

I came in twenty years ago with my mother; who had a plethora of symptoms. We had been to seven doctors before Dr. Paparone and all had been unable to successfully treat my mother. Dr. Paparone is a fantastic doctor, great bedside manner- he made us feel at home right away. He treated my mothers complicated condition with ease. He is one of the first infectious disease physicians in the US- he has seen it all. I am so glad that I decided on him.

Worst Dr I've ever seen

Dr Paparone was the worst Dr I have ever seen and I have seen many. I have a broad range of symptoms that are difficult to diagnose and have been to several specialists and infectious disease doctors. Typically they will spend about 30 to 40 minutes asking me questions and diagnosing me. Dr. Paparone probably spent about 5 minutes asking questions and basically patted me on the head and told me I am O.K. He couldn't have been more dismissive. To give you one example of something he missed, I complained of dizziness and cognitive difficulties. He did not shine a light into my eyes and have me follow it. A few weeks later another doctor did just this and discovered that I have neuropathy on my left side. My left eye does not track a light and this is due to an infectious disease that I have that will get worse without treatement. My reflexes on my left side are also impaired. He missed that too. I could go on and on. Basically he missed everything. What gives? Why is this guy a Dr. He should consider another career.
