TV/Radio Guest Expert
In addition to producing and hosting her own television show for 12 years in Los Angeles, Dr. Papillon appears on national television as an expert guest. In the past she has been the psychological commentator for a weekly news show on a major network station, and on regional talk shows to discuss her books. She views the camera as an intimate way to connect with everyone watching. She never writes a script, but rather chooses to just open up to her audience and speak from her heart, knowing that by doing that, she will be creating an atmosphere where her audience can receive whatever it is they need at the moment. Dr. Papillon has also appeared on over 150 radio shows discussing topics that touch lives all over the world, providing comfort and trust so they can reach for a life that is beyond her listeners wildest dreams. She lives to inspire her listeners and viewers and helps them to receive and discover a renewed sense of what is possible in their own lives.
Expert Trial Witness
Dr. Papillon has been asked many times over the years to be the expert witness for divorcing couples, criminal trials, civil suits, child custody issues, court evaluations, sexual and physical abuse accusations, plus other very complicated situations.
However, even before she considers rendering her expert opinion on any matter, Dr. Papillon carefully evaluates all of the information given to her by lawyers and/or interviews the people involved to gather extensive evidence before making a decision on whether to participate in the process or not. Once a decision has been made, she is open to going onto the stand to testify for the side who has requested her expertise in a particular case.
In doing so, she has had to answer to attorneys for both sides of any particular case, one of which is of course trying to discredit her. But Dr. Papillon's approach presents the information she has gathered over time in such a way that she not only is believable, but juries and judges respect her, given her professional background and the manner in which she presents the information. She has withstood many tough circumstances and arrived at the end with a favorable decision for the side she is representing.
Dr. Papillon began doing surgery evaluations ten years ago. She will do these for plastic surgery, bariatric surgery, extensive reconstructive surgery, and all other invasive procedures that require an experienced clinician's expertise on the mental readiness for the surgery to have, not only an excellent chance during the process but to protect against any possible long-term outcomes that could be damaging to the whole experience.
Dr. Papillon is very thorough in the evaluation, including having the patient complete a comprehensive questionnaire created by both the staff of the surgery group the patient is going to or what Dr. Papillon has done with that particular surgery in the past. She has the patient answer the questions in the office, with Dr. Papillon asking the patient the questions and filling out that part of the evaluation. Other recommended processes may be introduced, depending on the patient and the surgeon.
The surgeon will then get the completed evaluation by fax or by email (depending on the request) plus a definitive answer as to the readiness for surgery.
Many times the surgeon is told that the patient must be in psychotherapy for a period of time, up to six months, before the patient is ready to do the invasive procedure.
Thus, Dr. Papillon can stand behind any evaluation ultimately given to both the patient and the surgeon (unless contraindicated, then only to the surgeon requesting the information). Dr. Papillon has become a trusted evaluator over these years of experience and welcomes any assistance from the surgeon in order for the surgeon to feel comfortable proceeding further with the patient who has requested this type of surgery.
