Patient Ratings and Comments
About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

"Very good" is too low a rating to describe Dr. Pappas. The time and care he took explaining things to me was incredibly comforting. I can't recommend him highly enough.

If I could continue to see Dr. Pappas that would be excellent, but that is not the case, I have to make do with his nurse practitioners because he is so busy and that is not okay. They do not have his experience in the field nor his knowledge and I feel very poorly taken care of as a result

Dr. Pappas is a Godsend... He is always on me about what I need to do to help me. He makes me feel like I really have a say in my care and that he cares about the outcome. He listens and understands me. I discussed with him my upcoming surgery and he reassured me that it will be fine and he is NOT the surgeon.. He explained to me he had the same procedure and how i would feel make sure I rest... he relieved the stress. I wish all doctors were like him.. I only have great things to say about Dr. Pappas and he saved my life in [...]
