Glen B – Oct 09, 2020
Went to this guy years ago...had appointment scheduled. When I got there they said I didn't have an appt. I explained I did and the women that acted like a guy threatened to call the police on my husband because he told me to "come on lets go."in a slightly raised voice. They said the only way I could have my appt was if I paid another copay!! I wouldn't recommend this place to get a mole taken off my dog. They did nothing for my skin problem but tried to pawn me off on their other "Dr" at their other office. The staff is rude, argumentative and threatening.

I was a new patient. I was not given any location for the address. I was about 20 minutes late. They would not work me in, so I would have to reschedule. I made my appointment over 3 months ago, it was their first opening for a new patient. I explained I will not be rescheduling! They to busy to need my business. Good luck to You, and don’t be late!!!

, none – May 14, 2018
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.

Andrew in La Porte, IN – May 25, 2016
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!!
