Dr. Pappas is kindhearted, intelligent, practical and an achieved psychiatrist who possesses a broad yet solid knowledge of medicine. Her perpetual support of patients and colleagues is the ultimate sign of an altruistic physician. Her endless patience and stepwise approach to treatment by integrating holistic and natural means is truly valued as a source of sustenance for all who cross her path
Dr. Pappas is a compassionate, sensible, knowledgeable psychiatrist who uses her broad training in medicine and complimentary modalities to give easily-understood answers to complex questions. I especially value her common-sense and naturalistic recommendations because they always seem scientifically grounded while not being rigidly traditional. I trust her expertise.
I can recommend Dr. Pappas without hesitation. Her clinical acumen, resourcefulness, empathy, tact, ethics, and broad base of knowledge are to be emulated. I have learned much from her and I greatly appreciate her undaunting dedication to Healthtap as well as her willingness to help those who are new here, such as myself. A+ recommendation!

Her answers reflect a doctor who has thought out a custom answer for a patient's question. A true pleasure to read her responses. Her patients are fortunate to have her.
Fast, Fantastic answers to often complex questions, truly an asset to the Medical Community. A true national leader in Mental Health Care. She is a truly engaged physician and her broad knowledge base is demonstrated in her advice to the health tap audience. Thank you for being a terrific doctor and colleague...
Dr. Pappas is an extraordinarily talented doctor. She’s a board-certified psychiatrist and a classical homeopath with broad knowledge and rare clinical wisdom. She does what’s best for patients and finds it truly satisfying to help others live healthy lives. She gets my highest recommendation.
