He is our favorite doctor! Previous pediatrician we have seen was abrupt and didn’t explain anything very well, but Dr Applegate is not like that at all. When your child is sick he goes over everything with you. IHevusually tells us what the next few days will look like as our child gets over the sickness so we aren’t surprised or worry. I wouldn’t go to any other doctor.

I only had one experience with Dr. Applegate and that was enough. He made me wait over 45 minutes with a 18 month old. He doesn't listen to parents, and dismisses every concern. He also dismisses any other health care provider that isn't him. I couldn't get out of there fast enough to call another Pediatrician. I have worked in health care for 20 years with many doctors, but none as arrogant as Dr. Applegate.
