Achilles Paparsenos, M.D.
Physician & Founder of Bucks Thyroid & Endocrine Care

Dr. Paparsenos practiced Endocrinology in the Philadelphia area for over 8 years before he founded Bucks Thyroid & Endocrine Care here in Yardley.
Dr. P’s main focus is always on the patient’s experience with disease. Listening and understanding his patients is always his first priority. He stays on the cutting edge of endocrine care and uses an evidence-based approach, but he always shares the medical decision making with his patients. For these reasons education is a mainstay of his practice. He has extended this dedication to teaching young doctors in training in the area.
