Everything about being a patient of Dr Appleby is great. He spends a lot of time and answers all your questions. He remembers you and your condition from one visit to another so it's not like meeting a new doctor each time. He is up to date on all new cardiology developments. He has a great sense of humor and is very easy to talk to.

He was very understanding and gave me great information. He should never stop doing what he does . He should be recognized for his work and bedside manner . He shows that he is here for more than a check he is here for the health and life of his patients. He cared about the stresses in my life even though being a Doctor now is more dangerous than walking across the street. He is part of the real hero’s out there . Everyone should k now this about him .

His real concern for his patients, and he has a great staff! I had an upcoming surgery a 1 1/2 away and at the last moment needed clearance. His staff got me in and Dr Appleby generated the required documentation. Awesome!

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.

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!
