Papel Ira D Md
I have used other plastic surgeons in the past, but Dr. Papel really stands out. He is very professional, extremely knowledgeable and really personable. He takes his time with every patient and goes to great length to explain the desired procedure. Of course every patient is concerned about the outcome of their surgery but I can assure you that Dr. Papel produces remarkable results. Dr. Papel performed rhinoplasties for both my son and daughter and the results were truly amazing. He did exactly what he said he would do and I couldn’t have been more pleased. And it’s no surprise that his staff is just as professional, courteous and friendly. I can’t say enough about my wonderful experience with Dr. Papel and his office staff. Highly recommend!

Some of the larger medical centers have entire hospitals or clinics focused on a particular medical service, such as cancer treatment, though specialties vary among the centers. Patients whose community hospital or local doctors do not have the facilities or expertise to address complex medical conditions can be referred by their primary care physician or local specialist to a major medical center (there are more than a dozen in the United States).
Yes. In addition to their inpatient hospital services, medical centers can offer a wide variety of outpatient services, such as pain clinics, rehabilitation centers, surgery, imaging and laboratory, mental health treatment, and outpatient cancer treatment. Medical groups – doctors in private practice but affiliated with the medical center--will also have offices within the medical center.
Physicians, nurses, physician’s assistants, residents, and attending physicians makeup the clinical staff of an academic medical center.
Medical center accreditation is not required, but most centers work voluntarily toward accreditation because it represents higher standards of healthcare quality and patient safety.
