My elderly father had a series of appointments with Dr. Appel for cataract surgeries on two eyes. Dr. Appel is fine and does a good job but the wait times at his office are truly out of control. My father is incontinent and we have to schedule things carefully. Out of approximately 5 appointments we had to wait more than half an hour for 4 of them and over an hour for 2 of them. It is so completely disrespectful of other people's time. I would rate this doctor higher but the ridiculously lengthy wait times clouded the whole experience.
