I've been going to Dr. Apelian for about a year now. He has helped me so much with headaches, neck pain and shoulder pain. I get injections every three months and it has really made a difference in my quality of life. He is very smart and thorough.

He is an amazing doctor! He diagnosed my daughter with a condition that no other doctor had recognized. She has had surgery and is now doing a lot better. He is also a very kind and caring person. I also go to him and would highly recommend him!
