Patient Comments (1)
Pittsburgh, PA |
Dr. Appleman is exemplary. Without ever knowing, Dr. Appleman treated me for kidney cancer while I was in a very abusive and tumultuous marriage. His medical perspective and expertise in treating my cancer was incredible, but what he never knew is that the hope that he encouraged me to have was invaluable and integral in taking better care of myself mentally, emotionally, and physically. His compassion is authentic. He truly is living his purpose as a healer.
