Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Apicella "Patient comfort is important to quality medical care.  Together, patients and I work to understand their ear, nose and throat symptoms, formulate a diagnosis and create an effective treatment plan.  Each patient is different and a treatment plan that is ideal for one person, when all individual factors are discussed, may not be the right choice for another.  This individualized approach is central to the way I approach each and every patient's medical concerns."
