Dr Pahapill listened to every word my wife and I had to say...
Dr. Pahapill made me feel so at ease and comfortable! He listened to everything I had to say and explained things very well!
Great people love them they are so good
Dr Pahapill has given me hope for a relief from my pain with an option that has to be approved by insurance and went a step further to say there was even another procedure in the event the first option doesn't work. I am waiting to hear back what progress has been made with insurance. Hoping for a quick answer but I know insurance can be tricky
Professional and caring staff. Made me feel comfortable and answered all of my questions. Very pleased.
