I can barely walk because of my bad knees...no one at Dr Appells office cares...I called the drs office after two weeks of waiting to get synvisc shots and they had just called in the prescription...the nurse went on vacation and apparently no one else in the office knows how to order a prescription...I’ll get my synvisc shots here this time but I’ll never go back...they really don’t care 🤷♀️
Dr. Appell doesn't suggest a procedure unless the procedure is really necessary. He has operated on me 4 times. He is one of only a few doctors I know who came out to the waiting room to discuss my surgery with my husband just after the surgery was complete. His follow up is excellent. Dr. Appell is very patient and caring. I would give him a higher score if possible. Dr. Appell's office staff is very friendly and helpful as well.
Dr. Appell repaired my rotator cuff several years ago. I was in my fifties and regained full motion within 4 weeks. Have never had any more problems with it. I am considering knee replacement surgery and I would never go to anyone but him! Also, he is now at the new hospital, Grandview. I went on a tour of the hospital and it is beautiful. State of the art technology! I would recommend Dr. Appell to anyone who wants their surgery done right the first time!
