great provider. highly recommend
Dr Apel always takes the time to listen and offer good advice and medical care.
Does not explain or ask about developmental milestones my child is or should be hitting
Dr. Apel has gone out of her way to be helpful to our family. We feel so lucky that she is our girls' doctor.
Dr. Abel was excellent and we will be seeing her from now on
dr. apel was very kind and alleviated my sons fears about getting his sutures removed. she was gentle and talked him through the whole procedure. asked him about his hobbies to take his mind off of the situation
Dr.Apel is such a considerate and caring doctor that always treats my son with the best care possible and he feels so comfortable when interacting with her. She is simple a fabulous physician and we hope she never retires!!
Dr. Apel was great with my kids. I always have multiple kids with me and Dr. Apel was listening and concerned with my whole family. Being in a small room for a while with 2 kids under 4 wears me out fast when medical staff only pay attention to one kid. Dr. Apel stood in front of the door so my 18m old couldn't escape and that was HUGE to this pregnant, already preoccupied parent at a doctors office that nobody wants to be at.
We love Dr. Apel. She's been the child's pediatrician for 10 years. She always listens & doesn't rush to get through the visit.
Dr. Apel continues to be amazing - she really does feel like part of the family and we know that she is there for us and our kids no matter what we need. She is excellent of putting things in perspective for us as parents, and focuses on the child in the interaction, which made our son feel empowered to talk with her. Love her!
Can't say enough about her - always available, always sympathetic but logical. Kind and direct with our daughter. Just one of the best!
it was awesome and appreciated
Dr. Apel is always kind during our visits. I feel she is very through and knowledgable. As a very worrisome person she is always very compassionate and takes time to answer all of my questions and concerns.
my oldest child see's doctor B so I was a little concerned about my new one seeing someone different but I feel doctor A is a very good doctor and I plan to keep her with my son.
Since Dr. Brostoff retired we see the doctor that is in the office that day. Which is fine but Dr Apel was in the exam room for approximately 3 minutes. Long enough to check his heart and look in his ears. No questions asked about the problem my son was having. She quickly left and proceded with the next patient. I felt like it was a total waste of time even taking to the office.
She is always on time, attentive, and I always leave with answers to any questions.
Dr. Apel is always pleasant and takes time to explain things or answer questions. she always remembers little things about the children that are personal to them. This shows that she listens and has a connection to our family. We love Dr. Apel!
Dr. Apel is so kind and patient with my child. She was genuinely interested in what he wanted to tell her and offered such great feedback to all my questions. Dr. Apel is a wonderful doctor and we feel so lucky to have such a fantastic pediatrician!
We have been with Dr. Apel for 21 years. She is a phenomenal doctor and a kind, caring person.

Dr. Apel is amazing. Called us on a Saturday afternoon with test results. Can not imagine taking our children anywhere else!!!
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.
