we Love Dr. Apel
We wouldn't wvwr consider seeing anyone but Amy. She is a trusted partner and has been with us through every step of our children's lives. She is so responsive when we have a question. I can't Count the number of times she has talkd to me on the phone to help us through things with one of the kids. Completely irreplaceable We love her!
Dr. Apel is top-notch! Excellent bedside manner.
Dr. Apel consistently provides excellent health care service. We have the utmost confidence in her ability and experience. She always is kind when communicating with us or our son. She goes above and beyond to ensure that we are confident and comfortable with our son's medical care.
Dr. Apel does an excellent job.
called back with X-ray results promptly with instructions for what to do next
Rita the nurse as well as the doctor knows us well over the years and it's nice to have people there who personally know your child.
THE DRS AND STAFF OF THIS PRACTICE IS EXCELLENT!! I HAVE BEEN HERE WITH ALL 3 OF MY CHILDREN FOR 10 YEARS AND HAVE NEVER HAD A COMPLAINT. I HAVE ALSO RECOMMENDED THIS PRACTICE TO MANY PEOPLE INCLUDING NEW PARENTS.
Dr Apel is always very nice to my child and myself. She is very good with children.
we like Dr. amy
Dr. Apel is the best with my children and even when they are not feeling well they get excited when they learn that Dr. Apel is the one they are going to see and she always makes them feel great.
The care at Children's Community Care has always been fantastic. We have worked with the same doctor and nurses and medical assistants over the years. We always receive a high level of service.
My children really like Dr Apel. They do not want any other doctor
Dr. Apel is a wonderful physician, and I am grateful to have known her for so many years. She is always kind, respectful, and willing to listen. I feel comfortable asking her any questions concerning my health, and she is always prompt and honest in her answers.
We always receive excellent care
dr amy Apel is wonderful.
Dr Apel is always caring and concerned and takes time to listen and give advice. I've never had an issue with Dr. Apel and I will continue to have her as my childs healthcare provider. My son likes her as well as myself and that is also very important. She has been his provider since infancy.
Everything was great! Thank You
Our experience with Dr. Apel, the medical assistant and the receptionist was most pleasurable.
Have been going to this office and have had Dr. Apel since my child was an infant. Moved away from the area but still kept Dr. Apel as my child's pediatrician because of how much we like and respect her. Cannot say enough of good things about Dr. Apel or the office staff.
Dr. Apel has known me for several years, and she has always attending to my needs. I am comfortable approaching her with any health concerns, and she is always willing to give me advice.
Dr Apel is a wonderful and caring doctor.
I like Dr. Apel. She is wonderful, confidence inspiring person. My son is Autistic, and usually gets combative when doctors attempt to examine him, but he seems not to have that attitude with Dr. Apel. She has managed to coax him into letting her examine him when others couldn't. That says a lot to me. I would certainly recommend her to others.
