I have seen my share of doctors in my time, and Dr. Pappas is one of the very best. He is clearly committed to providing easy to understand descriptions involving complex information and having his patients participate in decisions surrounding their own care. He also spends as much time as one needs to feel comfortable. I can't say enough about Dr. Pappas and have already referred people to him that need to see a pulmonologist.

Dr. Pappas was very highly recommended by my primary Physician Dr. [...]. I feel very comfartable with him and he has been able to explain everything to my satisfaction in great detail. He takes the time to go over all my tests and tells me in layman's terms what the mean so i can understand them.

"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
