I have had serious heart issues for 10 years including 2 open heart surgeries in another state. Upon moving to AZ I went to Dr Apolinar. She spent a lot of time reviewing my records and just talking to me about my history. I was very impressed with the time she took to get to know me and lay out a plan to follow my case moving forward. The negative review seemed to be from a patient who takes no personal responsibility for his own health. It is hard for any physician to work with patients who don't listen or follow their recommendations. I am very pleased.
I bet the previous reviewer complains every time he sits down in a restaurant. This doctor has gave me the time and attention to get me thru a medical crisis other doctors would have given up on me thru. She made me believe again that doctors do care. Her knoweldge is vast and her bedside manner is one of caring beyond the norm. Best in Arizona and I am proud to recommend her.
I have had pretty bad experiences with cardiologists and hadn't gone in 10 yrs. I told my primary I would, though, so I chose this physician based on the reviews on this site. She was hostile from minute one when I would not get on the scale, took a poor history, shushed me, patronized me, never showed any personal interest in me whatsoever and pushed to get me to get what I suspect are the usual three tests--Holter, echo and stress test. By then, I was resistant and left. I imagine if you do everything she says--never look anything up, never question, she would be OK.
Dr. Apolinar is one of the best Dr. we have had since my husband had a massive heart attack followed by open heart and other on going cardiac problems. We followed her to the new paractice and would follow her again. She spends time with you in office and follows up by calling other doctors so that all your medical care proffesionals are on the same page.This makes a big difference in your healthcare if all doctors were so caring and on top of managing their patients my husband may have never gotten as sick as he did. I agree she is one smart lady. Great bedside manner. And I totally disagree with another calling her rude or uncaring..whats it your business if she has a ring or not.Thats just RUDE....Thanks Dr Apolinar for being the best!!!!
Dr Apolinar is the best, she is caring and through. Shes one smart lady. She will be a assest to premier cadiology.I will be following her there and if she moves from there, I will follow if I can.Cannot praise her skill and ability enough.Shes one of the best.
