Patient Comments (1)

My husband has now been treated 3 times by Dr Apfelbaum, last procedure 2015. The family found him caring and patient. He did not talk down to us nor was he paternalistic. He shared his thoughts and ideas. He compared the findings of the three similar procedures. I highly recommend him.
