I actually liked Dr. Apolinar very much although I only saw her twice out of the four appointments. My problem is with the staff, specifically the person (I think front desk) that keeps track of co-pay and billing. Each visit I paid my co-pay with a credit card. On third visit the girl at front desk said I owed $10 for co-pay. I told her I paid at each visit. She said ok and then they sent me a bill for the $10 which without realizing what it was for paid it. A month after last visit, I get a bill for another $10. I called and was told to send them an email. I made copies of each credit card charge and sent via email. Received another bill!, sent another email through website. Received another bill now stating it was past due. So darn frustrated and tired of spending so much of my time I just paid it. So now they owe me $20, hope the incompetent person enjoys the lunch she had on my money.

I have seen Dr. Apolinar for more than three years since moving to the area. I have been impressed with everything she has done for me. I was very happy that when my mother in law moved here from out of state that she was able to see her too. She ALWAYS takes the time needed and listens to any concern and answers questions in a way that I can understand. Thank you Dr. Apolinar

My first meeting with Dr. Apolinar left me quite impressed; however, after I went through tests for diagnosing me, she left this practice. Dr. Apolinar left me to get another doctor, never contacted me for follow-up with a serious heart problem, and this is the first time I have located her. I no longer wish to see her as I have found another doctor who makes me feel that he is doing the right thing to make me better. No thanks to you Dr. Apolinar.

Although I have not been to this new office as yet, I am sure that Dr. Apolinar would not work in any other environment but the best! I have spoken to Wendy at the front desk and she was most helpful with the information I needed! I have total faith in her as a Doctor and as a friend! We will be driving a much farther distance to see her and even my husband said she was worth the trip!

This location is the worst medical office i have ever been in. I would tell anyone not to find a doctor in here. The staff is rude. I have witnessed the worst behavior in an office here. I watched the staff make fun of an older person trying to get directions to the other office located across the way. HORRIBLE behavior. There are plenty of good doctors out there tho find - stay away from this office
