I have had an excellent experience with this caring and available physician. I have observed his skill which has given me days and months of pain relief. I have seen his skill in preparing for a procedure so not to inflict more pain. Are the procedures uncomfortable sometimes but I get sometimes immediate relief from some really awful, I mean awful pain. Thanks to Dr Apicella I can do more, and enjoy life a little better. This is unsolicited !!! ps the staff is very good too. S.C.Corson RPh.

Excellent doctor, after my third lumbar injection I know Dr Ed. well, and I have complete confidence in him. Definitely 5 stars. The facility is immaculately clean and their protocol clearly is as thorough and as careful as can be devised.

I am very happy with the results of an injection in my lower spine by Dr. Apicella to alleviate pain in my back and legs. I can now stand for over ten minutes without being in severe pain.
