He is one of the greatest Doctors I have ever met, and I have met very many. He takes his time with me and answers all my questions. He is on top of his game and constantly is keeping up with new developments so he can always speak with authority. He can raise your spirits even when the subject being discussed is very serious. It is very rare to find someone like him and I am very glad that I did. I referred my son to him and he feels just like I do about him. His quality of work reflects very well on Memorial Care Medical Group. Sincerely, Stuart B. Gordon

I am a new patient of Dr. Appleby's and the experience of my initial visit was hands-down the best, most professional cardiology appointment to date (survivor of two myocardial infarctions over the past 12 years and seen many cardiologists). He's an affable, knowledgable and thorough physician and would highly recommend him.

Quite simply, Dr Appleby is a terrific, caring Dr! He does not turn his back to you and fiddle with a laptop like most doctors do now. In fact, I don't recall him even looking at notes. He just remembers! Dr Appleby is a singularly rare find! -Knowledge, Manner, Memory, and technical expertise are unmatched in my fairly extensive experience. (50 years of talking to Doctors in Long Beach) Thank you Dr Appleby!

Where do I begin!??! Dr Applby was so kind enough to see me as an urgent status, and for that alone, I am immensely grateful!!! Dr Appleby was professional, efficient, and hilariously funny....which for me, is a HUGE plus!!! He took excellent care of me and made me feel great about the high level of care I received. He put me at ease and was very thorough and proficient. He had me laughing as he delivered exceptional care, answered my questions with ease and clarity, and He was AWESOME!!!!

My anticipated visit with Dr. Appleby might never come to fruition due to the uncooperative staff that work (?) his scheduling desk. One would expect that if the doctor leaves his multitude of advertising flyers at Memorial Care Medical Group, his staff would be instructed of the proper etiquette on how to treat patients from that facility. Not wanting a one bad experience to sour my impression of Dr. Appleby, I've asked for an office manager to return my phone call. It did NOT happen, yet...

I like that he’s up to speed on my case & has options for me when he comes in the room. He’s very positive yet honest about the status of things.

My name is Ms. Bermudez as Dr. Appleby refer's to me by. I love the fact that he's my cardio doctor. I am a living testiment. I have come to him with many medical difficulties, i was pieced back together after my heart failed while i was being operated on in a hospital. No other doctor's wanted to really touch me because of the mess i was. I can write a book on the subject. Dr. Appleby is my hero. Thank you Doctor. Nivia B.
