Dr. Appel greeted me with earnest interest and complete attention. He thoroughly consulted me with expertise and patience. Dr. Appel was extremely knowledgable and warm. I left with a clear understanding of my illness and confidence in the treatment plan that he prescribed. Although he is a world renowned doctor, he treated me like I was just as important as the notable people in his picture frames.
