Mountain Home, AR |
I was seeing Dr Applegate because I was having left sided weakness, tachycardia, headaches, shortness of breath, & hyper reflexive reflexes for about two years. After examinations She treated me with great disrespect and told me I needed psychological help because there was nothing physically wrong with me. It turned out I had a tumor in my heart and was having mini strokes for at least two years. I had to Have open heart surgery and MRI confirmed the mini- strokes. What a terrible tragedy!

She overbooks her patients and sometimes you have to wait 3-4 hours to see her. She can also make you feel like an uneducated idiot depending on the type of day she is having. Very untrustworthy and does not take your pain seriously.
West Plains, MO |
Doesn't really listen to the patient. Doesn't thoroughly explain the issue or the treatment. Seems to treat the patient and caregivers as if they aren't capable of understanding or of asking what she considers important questions.
