Comments: Dr. Rick Papandrea has been my physician since 2004. He has replaced both of my shoulders, one with a traditional replacement and one using the reverse shoulder technique. He also did carpel tunnel surgery on my right hand. My surgeries went extremely well and I have had no issues since the operations. Dr. Papandrea is extremely knowledgeable, he keeps abreast of the latest innovations in his field, and he has a great deal of experience executing complex surgeries. He is also very caring, kind, and down-to-earth. He always takes the time to answer my questions, and he explains intricate and difficult procedures in a way that I can understand. I enjoy my visits with Dr. Papandrea because he treats me with respect and he is genuinely concerned about my well-being. Before my surgeries, when the nurses saw on my chart who the attending surgeon was, they all referred to Dr. Papandrea as “the best” and the “most meticulous.” I feel very fortunate to have him as my surgeon.
