Comments: Dr. Papandrea is extremely knowledgeable and is great at what he does. He listens to his patients and is compassionate. We came him to get a 2nd opinion on our son's scaphoid fracture after another provider was trying to convince us we needed to do drastic 8 hour surgery involving taking a piece of his femur with blood supply needing 3 days in the hospital. Dr. Papandrea recognized that this was not necessary and repaired it with minimally invasive outpatient surgery. Our son is doing great!
