Unsafe/poor advice and recommendations

Posted on May 30th, 2017

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 Papa does not follow the AAP recommendations and gives old/outdated advice, which is dangerous to children.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

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

Posted on December 20th, 2010

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 :)
