He has the worlds greatest bedside manner. I have worked in the healthcare field for over 20 years and have taught Doctors nurses and patient care. He is above all of them. He is kind and shows that he loves his job and you can tell. People like him are why I feel safe going to the Doctor and so should you if you are reading this review.

Dr. Applebee was compassionate, knowledgeable and thoroughly answered all questions. It was my first visit to a cardiologist and I was nervous as both my parents (now passed away) had heart disease. Dr Applebee fully informed me of any potential issues. However, most importantly, he put everything in context and was careful to not unnecessarily raise my level of concern. I highly recommend Dr. Applebee.

As always, he listens to my concerns and answers all of them in detail. He remembers my situation and details each time he sees me. He is up to date on all new developments in cardiology so he is cutting edge. His support staff are all great and helpful too. He is the best of the best and you will be very lucky to call him your cardiologist.

My visit was virtually. How to get online and connect for my virtual visit was explained in detail online on my chart and via text.?I was called about 15 minutes before my visit and reviewed my meds and asked if I needed help getting online. Dr. Appleby came online on time and we discussed how I was feeling and my care plan. Dr. Appleby is caring, makes me feel at ease and very knowledgeable.

He has identified and prescribed medicine that works after 30 years of poorly managed condition from other Dr's and cardiologists. Dr Appleby has an amazing manner and explains things thoroughly! I leave feeling as if no matter what, he is part of the solution. A Dr. like this is hard to find in today's world of 10 mins. Visits. Dr Appleby has always taken the time necessary to answer all my questions & explain various processes & procedures. Only 5 stars? This man deserves 11 stars!

After searching for a cardiologist that actually cared about my concerns i found Dr.Appleby and he immediately new the reason for my heart palpitations and started my treatment right away. He never assumed it was (ANXIETY)like the rest of the cardiologist who never bothered to run test or said because (I’m a women I’m prone to anxiety attacks) I’m extremely grateful for him and his kindness and I’m actually extremely Relieved to know i would be getting the right care with his team!!!

Dr Appleby dispelled my fear and myths acquired from misinformation on the Internet by explaining the science behind my concerns and associated with my symptoms. There is no substitute for educated expertise and the ability to communicate it in an effective manner to a "lay" patient. Superficial knowledge is dangerous and must be tempered by experts, such as Dr. Appleby.
