She truly listens to all your concerns and problems and tries to find the best solution. Wish I would have went to her a lot sooner. You don't see doctors that has true compassion. Thank you!

Was referred to her because my physician was out. I had to have some FMLA paperwork filled out due to an absence caused my a medication I was given. My current doctor had just gone out on maternity leave. I came in to see Dr. Apodaca thinking she would review my records see that I had a documented condition and fill my paperwork. She refused and now I will lose my job, I am the sole supporter of my family. How uncaring and terrible. Something that has no effect on her life whatsoever that would take her five minutes, she refused to complete, knowing that she was putting a family at risk of losing all their income. Cold uncaring person.

Dr Apodaca was very personable and explained things very well while not making me feel rushed. She gave me plenty of time to ask questions. I had a hysteroscopy br her yesterday. She has excellent bedside manner.

She was very short with me, she had no interest in reading my chart, I have hyperemesis gravidarum, and she did not go over any medication I had been given prior to our visit, with one which could cause permanent damage if taken for a long amount of time. She was very dismissive when I was telling her my concerns of having another two vessel chord, and how low the babies heart rate was. My husband is in the medical field as well, and we both couldn’t trust her judgment, and changed OB offices.
