I have seen Dr. P a couple of times as well as nurse practioner Lee. Every time I go in, he inspects to make sure no new suspicious moles. He also is very cost sensitve knowing that many acne and... skin creams are not covered by insurance, so they work with you to get the best price. A friend recommended Dr. P and I can see why. I never wait, they always take me right back, and the whole staff is friendly and knowledgeable.VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »
I first saw Dr. Papa in 1998 when he removed a fatty tumor from my underarm. I have returned multiple times over the years for skin check-ups, mole removals & biopies. He is the best. I feel so... confident when I leave his office that he has been thorough and I am in good skin health. Yeah, there's a wait, but bring a book. I can wait for the best a few minutes every few years.VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »
I've been a patient for many years and wouldn't think of going elsewhere. Dr. P has a great bedside manner, and he seems truly concerned with his patients' welfare. Wait times can be long, so I always schedule the first appt. in the morning.

I was very concerned as the purpose of my visit was to have a mole with melanoma removed. My presurgical consultation was handled by phone by an employee who was both competent and sympathetic. All I had to do was just arrive at their office and they took charge at that point, making me feel confident that I had made the right choice. Dr. Papadopoulos is very competent, and has a dynamite personality. The results were good. The staff is very caring and competent and they adore Dr. Papatopoulos.
Once you get in to see Dr P, he's fantastic. That's the key, though - you have to get in first! Every time I've scheduled an appointment with him, they've had to call me to reschedule it right before it happens (the last reason? Dr P had a party he wanted to go to - do they have to be so honest?!). Then, once I'm in his office, I've had to wait at least one hour each time before being seen. His reasoning is that he never knows when he needs extra time to remove a mole - and so if the patients before you need that extra procedure, then it pushes him behind schedule. That's all well and good, but surely there's a better system than making your patients wait inordinate amounts of time. All that said, I will continue to see Dr P - he's a fantastic doctor once you actually get face time.
I went to see Dr. Papadopolous for an annual skin check and acne assistance because of the rave reviews he has received on here. First I waited for an hour past my appointment time to see him, then when I finally saw him, he barely gave me any care. He did not look at all areas of my skin for moles, even when I told him I had one I wanted him to look at (he said it was fine). Also, his advice for my acne (cystic acne & I am 32 years old) was to wash my face with soap and then apply rubbing alcohol! Also, I was told not to use any moisturizer. When I asked about sunscreen, he said I didn't need to wear it! Terrible, terrible, terrible advice. It is extremely hard for me to believe that this man is a dermatologist!
The first time I went to him I waited two hours. I complained to him when I finally got in to see him. He said to get a first appointment of the day next time so I did. After sitting there for about an hour and a half, I told the receptionist to cancel my appointment. There was not an emergency that he was tending to, he just hadn't made it to the office yet.
I can't say enough about Dr. P and his staff. I have been a patient for almost 7 years now and feel like Dr. P has saved my life. He is the most caring and knowledgeable doctor I have met. The wait can be long, but you look past it knowing that you are receiving the best care there is!
I have seen Lee Coulter (Dr. P's PA) for a few years, and have been very pleased. The medical staff is outstanding, very knowledgable, and very caring. The only reason I give 4 stars instead of 5 is that the office staff could be better - have had a few instances where I never received test results. I believe this has been fixed.
I have seen Dr. P for over 10 years. He has the most wonderful bedside manner of any physician I have ever met. His PAs and other staff members are great as well. There's a wait to see him, but his PAs work closely with him, and he stays on top of everything. This practice is GREAT!!
Dr. P is very knowledgeable and helpful. He knows everything. However, the wait to see him can be quite long. Be prepared to wait.
Dr. P. is in a league of his own. He knows skin, is an excellent surgeon and has the steadiest hand of anyone I've seen. In addition to all of that, he has a wonderful "bedside manner" and deals with you meticulously and methodically. He has a very busy office, and you might be best served seeing the other doctor or even PA for routine matters.
