My 12 year old daughter had surgery today and Dr. Applebaum was excellent. She made us feel very comfortable, spent time talking to us and explaining things that we were worried about and most of all she was very comforting to my daughter. We couldn't have had a better experience. Much thanks to Dr. Applebaum and the staff of Winthrop Hospital.

I had an awful experience at this office. My appointment was lost due to a computer malfunction, the Dr. requested a CT scan for my daughter and could not get it approved because the time frame of 30 days lapsed due to her office staff not following through and the Dr. not calling on her behalf! This office is a joke, I will find another surgeon for my daughter, its actually a blessing that she will not be putting her hands on my daughter. Run as far as you can, poor service, poor quality care.
The WORST! If i could give her negative stars I would have!!! She kept my 11 year old waiting (NAKED) in the room for ONE HOUR while she was in her office making phone calls! Her nurse attempted to interrupt her many times and she proceeded to scream at her through the locked door! I was standing next to the nurse & witnessed the entire thing! Disgusting!!!! My daughters first experience with a gynecologist and iit couldn't have been any worse!!!
