Phenomenal doctor! I started seeing Dr. Appel when I found out I was pregnant. She and her nurse have always been available to me when I had questions, courteous and professional, and very easy to talking to. I only have good things to say about Dr. Appel and the entire team at WHA.

I would not recommend her to anyone friend or not. I had a problem pregnancy and ended up losing the child. She didn't perform the necessary procedures afterwards and I eventually went to another doctor with a massive infection after months of lack of treatment.
