I had flown into Clearwater, FL for a two week family visit. I shortly after had a near death accident in their sun room which resulted in several severely broken bones and a head injury. While in Meese Countryside Hospital, I was referred to Dr. Pappou because of his expertise and the severity of injury. Dr. Pappou was straightforward about his plan (to put me back together again) and just how much function I would have at the end. It took a year, four MAJOR surgeries and seven months in inpatient rehabilitation. It was brutal, but through each step, Dr. Pappou and his staff gave me the encouragement and love to survive. I respect his talent, expertise, compassion, friendship and professionalism.
