I started seeing him four years ago when I tore my right ACL, then he got me back to where I needed to be and the next year I tore my other ACL. I'm now 18 and still having troubles with my left knee. Dr. Papas has been doing everything he possibly can to help me get better.

I was very happy with Dr. Papas who performed a hip replacement and a broken wrist fixed for me. He answered all my questions and I was very satisfied with the whole procedure. He followed through a year later and I would definitely return to him if I need any help in the future.

Terrible experience

Dr. Pappas misdiagnosed my son's hip pain as "nothing major." It turns out he has a tumor on his hip -- and the doctor that caught it used the same MRI as Dr. Pappas.

after surgery appointment

Dr. Spiro Papas MD. was very rude at post check ups. He never told patient what he should be doing his first month of recovery. At 2nd post visit he took patient arm which had just had major surgery and pulled it straight up, out, and up without giving a 2nd thought to the pain he would cause. the patient said no please no dont do that it will hurt. he did not care show any remorse.Did not communicate with patients mother. actually looked down on her. no respect. no manners. very rude do not use this doctor if your looking for a kind intelligent caring doctor who can and will explain all your about to go through. we will regret it. shame on him. i am appalled by his actions. and his disregard to patient pain and understanding. please take what i say to heart. It was my child who suffered from start to so called finish.
