    Philosophy of Care
    Listen to the patient! Dr. Pappas always tells his patients that some injuries and diagnoses are simple but others are more complex. It’s like putting a puzzle together. After each visit, Dr. Pappas reviews the history and refines his patient's treatment plan. He feels that it is important for the patient to be a part of the decision making process. Dr. Pappas's main objective is to get patients to their pre-injury health and pain free so they are able to enjoy life’s pleasures.
