Where to begin with this doctor. I have endured more issues since my first visit with her. She misdiagnosed two skin rashes as both being "dermatitis". She even said the word LUPUS...but did not think it was that (then why suggest it?). Two months later I have a huge scar where she did a biopsy ON A RASH and I still have a rash (turned out to be RINGWORM) on my other arm. She completely misdiagnosed my skin issue and I have been miserable for two months and now I am scarred (literally).
1st time patient. Was taken back to a patient room within 10 minutes of signing in. Was seen by Dr shortly after. She was courteous and professional. Did not try to sell me on treatments I don't need.

I have been a patient of Dr. Appell for over 10 years. I became disillusioned with her competency as I have recently had a spot that she has been glancing over in my annual exams biopsied and diagnosed as basal cell carcinoma! This huge scar on my forehead might have been smaller if she had caught it earlier!!
