My family and I have been patients of Dr. App's for 6 plus years. I feel as if over the years the quanity of patients brought into the pratice is more important rather than the quality he puts into his patients has become him. I am transfering out of the practice. It is very sad that it has come to this!

Dr. App is an amazing physician!! My son was sick for over 3 weeks, was in the ER 5 tims and had seen his previous physician 3 times. All everyone kept telling me was that it was viral. I finally had enough and called Dr. App,, hearing wonderful things about him from friends and co-workers. He worked us in that same day and informed us that my son more than likely has asthma and gave us the correct meds to help him. Since seeing him, my son is 150% better and I thank Dr. App for that. To the person that said he was a used car salesman, I work with people that know him on a personel level, These people also include other physcians that I work with. He was never a used car salesman, your comment was nothing but misinformation and you should investigate before you write such things.

by Melissa on Mar 28th, 2013

My entire family had been seeing the same family doctor for years. More recently, my sister wasn't happy with the treatment her son was receiving and asked around for a recommendation. A friend of hers referred her to Dr. App, and after seeing him, my sister referred me to him for my daughter. He is great and so is his staff. The first time I called to make an appointment, they offered to let me come in the same day. I've never waited more than 10 minutes. He always asks me if I have any questions, takes his time, and isn't pushy about treatment plans. So happy to have found him!

Dr. App is coming back!! He is opening his own practice very soon-- within the next month. He is the best Dr. ever and can't wait to see him again. His contact information is going public very soon if not already.

I am crossing my finger that he is indeed opening his own practice!!! That would be a dream come true because he was clearly restricted practicing under the iorn fist of SHMG..... PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE OPEN A PRACTICE! 1300 MI has already landed my youngest daughter in the hospital after a misdiagnosis-- aparently every cough sounds like the "croup" to them....

Oct 8th, 2012

I see the last post was 9-26-2012. Has there been any update since then? My son will be due for us well child check up in February and I would like to stay with Dr. App. I'm curious about the information that he will be opening his own pracice--specifically, where the information came from. I'm speculating, but wondering if he's subject to some sort of non-compete agreement. I cannot find any information about him, he appears to have vanished.

I have some serious medical issues. My issues changed the way I live. He helped me and supported me every step of way. He truly cared. He was a God send and I trust him. I am still transitioning and I am in the middle of a lot of changes. He is familiar with my background medically and is the best doctor for me. If any one knows how I can find him please post. Thanks, Bob

We have been using Dr. App for about 8 years and his bedside manner is not fake, he is a genuinely caring and enthusiastic person. Much needed in that profession. I want to know what happened and where he is going to practice so we can move all our records over ASAP. If anyone has any leads please post. Wondering if SHMG has a non-compete on him for awhile?

Seriously, after reading some of the comments, I am a little nervous. This guy is a used car salesman who cares more about what you think of him than taking care of you. If he is gone, it is for the better.

Dr. App has been taking care of my girls since birth. He has been excellent in taking care of my older daughter as she was diagnosed with Celiac disease. He came to see me at the hospital after I gave birth to my youngest, and he made sure I had all of my questions answered in a proficient manner.I want to know where he is. I will not trust my children to another doctor. He is truly the best doctor I've had the pleasure of knowing. If you know, please re-post. He has many patients waiting to see him.

Sep 5th, 2012

Dr. App has always been very courteous and helpful. After SH took over the medical group their phone cue and follow for test results suffered and I could see the patient load increased greatly. I know through my medical problems and those of my children there were occasions where there similar problems where the diagnosis had to be modified but thats medicine its not perfect every time, but he was willing to listen and reevaluate if treatment wasnt working right away.

Dr. App has been our family doctor since my first child was born in 2003. Even though he has moved farther out from where he first started practicing, we have opted to follow. He has a genuine love for what he does, genuine concern for his patients and a phenomenal bedside manner. He is truly what every doctor should be :) Kudos, Kudos, Kudos!!!

He seems to really be concerned and care but when it comes right down to it, he doesn't. He seems to have the same characteristics of your typical used car salesman. He would make a great marketing professional.

My entire family had been under his care for almost eight years. He is an excellent doctor, kind, and remembers your family. He has also become very popular over the past few years and is getting harder to get in. I am not enjoying that, especially when my kids are sick.

Dr.App is an EXCELENT doctor!!! Very caring and compassionate! Seems to generally care how you are feeling and takes the time to make you feel very comfortable. He has a awesome personality and is EXECLENT with children! My children have seen him since they were both born and he still remembers everything about them. Its not like going to a doctors office and some old doctor just reading his chart 2 mins before entering your room and not even know who you are. My only concern with Dr. App is how popular he has gotten in the past few years and i hope he never gets a "big head" and starts to not make the time for his patience, nothing worse than a doctor that's to over loaded with patience!!!

Dr. App is a GREAT doctor if you want to actually enjoy visiting the doctor's office. If you're looking for accuracy or excellence in actual health care diagnosis and treatment... I strongly recommend you look elsewere. At the very least, see Dr. Harold for any real concerns or problems. She's not as personable as he is but she knows what she's doing.

The office has become very busy over the last 3.5 years we have been going there. I wish it were less busy but I guess the word is out about what a truly wonderful doctor he is. I actully look forward to taking my kids to thier checkups! He always has us laughing. I recommend him to all my friends having babies...but I guess now that the office is so busy I should stop!:)
