I don't think we could have raised our children without Dr. Apel! She knows them so well - she is reasonable and thoughtful and truly is a partner with us in their care. Feel so very fortunate to have her in our lives!
we have been seeing Dr Apel for 17 yrs and she has always taken good care of my dtr.
she is always great with my children I took all 4 kids to her
Dr. Apel is a wonderful, caring pediatrician.
Dr. Apel was so patient and caring with my son.
We love Dr. Apel! She is always friendly and takes time to address all questions or concerns!
Dr. Apel listens to what I have to say. She always provides excellent advice and let's me know to call her if I have questions or concerns.
Dr. Apel is amazing. Called us on a Saturday afternoon with test results. Can not imagine taking our children anywhere else!!!
We love Dr. Apel. She is always willing to take the time to listen to your concerns. she has a great bed side manner!
I have always had good experiences with Dr. Apel.
The doctor completely dismissed my concerns of my daughter possibly having a sinus infection. I had to take her to MedExpress three days later for them to tell me I was correct and my daughter did indeed have a sinus infection.
Dr. Apel is incredible - I can't imagine finding another pediatrician with such warmth and kindness. She balances talking with parents while engaging her pediatric patients, and always remembers what we talked about on the last visit. My kids both adore her. Very special doctor.
Dr Apel is an amazing doctor . she always listens and always makes sure that all angles are covered that your child receives the best care possible ! been awesome now for over 19 years seeing both my children .
very polite and helpful
wonderful physician and I never have to wait more than a few minutes....ever. i just wish this office saw parents, too!
very little wait, provider asked if i had any concerns
good, I am satisfied
Dr. Apel is amazing. I am a mom who prefers to treat a little more holistic and when I declined on a certain vaccine she did not shame or guilt me into giving it to my child.
We love Dr. Apel! She is an excellent physician!
Dr. Apel and our pediatrician for 10 years and she is nothing short of amazing. She is always there for us when we need her and has been an Intercal part of our children's lives as they have grown. She clearly enjoyed her work and has a patient and loving approach with children.
This was our first visit and it was excellent all the way around. My daughter was very happy we switched to this provider.
excellent care but no one (all docs and nurses) ever washes hands prior to handling child.
compassionate patient staff
We love Dr.Apel!
well love dr.apel
