Dr Applegarth and staff were able to treat me when no one else could. I would recommend his services to anyone who asks or mentions they need help with skin issues. The staff is great!

Dr. Applegarth did a poor job on a mole removal, leaving a part behind. I was not aware that this was possible because it was not explained to me. When I called in to ask about this, I was told I needed to come back and pay for another appointment. Instead of working to rectify anything, Dr. was dismissive, defensive and patronizing. I also believe that he was being dishonest in his defensiveness. I was completely disgusted and will never go there again.

Definetly recommend Dr. Applegarth. I have always had such a good experience with this office. No issues with my Bill, I pay my copay upfront just like others offices, they don't make me pay my deductible up front but Bill my insurance first . My husband was laid off last winter and when I called them about my balance they were very accommodating.

After several visits to deal with skin cancer and deciding to have it surgically removed, and going in three times with the understanding that the appointment was to have the surgery, were told AGAIN that they hadn't scheduled the surgery. Will not return!!
