Specialties

Dr. Richard A Papa has the following 1 specialty

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Unsafe/poor advice and recommendations

Dr. Papa does not follow the AAP recommendations and gives old/outdated advice, which is dangerous to children. Also scheduling is very rigid and not flexible

One Star

This doctor will want you to start your baby on solids at 3 weeks old. It seems like he is very old fashioned and doesn't follow the American academy of pediatrics. He also wanted my baby who doesn't even have teeth yet to do a fluoride rinse and I've read nothing but bad things about floride rinses.

Mom of 2

I am a mom of two boys. My oldest son had bowel issues when he was younger and Dr. Papa figured out his issue within ten minutes of us being there. He also takes his time with you. Answering all your questions and concerns. He takes special time with newborns also which is nice if your a first time mom or dad. He is an all around amazing doctor and my kids love him. They are not afraid of him or scared to go to the doctors because of the time he takes with them. We love you doctor Papa :)
