Specialties

Dr. Phillip G Apprill has the following 3 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Cardiology

    Cardiologists are doctors who specialize in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of conditions related to the heart and blood vessels.
    A patient may be referred to a cardiologist if he experiences symptoms like chest pains, shortness of breath, dizziness, or high blood pressure. The physician will then evaluate your symptoms, take your health and family history and your weight. The cardiologist may order additional diagnostic tests, such as an echocardiogram, X-ray or blood tests. If necessary, the cardiologist may also call for a cardiac catheterization - a procedure in which a small tube is inserted into or near the heart that can take pictures of the heart's activity, or relieve blockage.
    Once determining whether there is a heart condition, a cardiologist will treat a patient through cholesterol management, cardiac rehabilitation, and fitness. If surgical intervention is required, like open-heart surgery, a cardiologist will make that determination, but a cardiothoracic surgeon will perform the procedure.

I saw Dr Apprill a few years ago in the hospital. His bedside manners was the first thing that impressed me (I am not very tolerant of so called "top docs" who have no personal skills). I felt that he was very knowledgable in his field and took plenty time with me to be sure I understood what was going on.

great experience

I can not think of anything he could improve on. I had a heart attack (right ventricle). He attempted a stent but the blockage was at the wall of the right ventricle. He was reassuring, fully explained what he had done, saw me everyday in the hospital, was very informative both there and in the follow up office appointment. I recommend him highly.

NO CALLBACK

My mom was suppose to have a procedure with another doctor and did her pre procedure exam. EKG showed abnormalities. Dr. Apprill needed to review and clear my mom for procedure... He NEVER CALLED. meanwhile, my mother was off her coumadin for 5 days. For a heart specialist, you'd think he'd know this is not good for her.. The reason that was given to my mom was that they are making changes in the office. She couldn't get an appointment until completed. Well hello, a phone call explaining would have been nice! By the way, the procedure she was suppose to have was to clean out a clogged artery in her neck! Thanks for nothing Dr. Apprill! If something happens to my mom I will be blaming you!
