What People Say About Dr. James Apostle, MD
Reply
Dr Apostle saved my Grandmas life. She went in to st. Mary's hospital for a pacemaker battery change, things didn't go as expected, so they had to intibate. The next day the Respiratory therapist wanted to extabate. Thank God for Dr. Apostle and his awesome quality of being thorough and cautious. He double checked behind the therapists and found that it was unsafe to remove the tube. This saved her life! He took the time to check behind them and I will forever be grateful!

Dr. Apostle actually graduated from VMI in the same class as one of my sons! when I was first diagnosed with emphysema, he thoroughly explained the disease and treatment with me and my husband. His drug prescriptions for my condition have been excellent. I credit him with keeping me up and going, feeling great as I still work full-time (am 69). I highly recommend Dr. Apostle (plus I really like his last name too! makes me feel like I'm on the right track!).
