28/10/13 4 1 1 3 Dr Appelblatt is a terrible doctor. Went in for an ear problem, and she ignored that but insisted I had sleep apnea and I snore -- neither of which are true. You can ask my spouse. Would not address anything else, until I first took care of this non-existent issue. Also, she is hyper and self-involved. I know more about her personal life than she does about why I was referred to her in the first place. That's just not right.  Respond

20/11/12 1 1 1 1 I was refered to Dr. Appelblatt. Tried to get an appointment for a second opinion and they refused to make one unless I provided the opinion of the other doctor. I want an independent second opinion, not a CYA. I offered to provide my entire medical record instead, they still refused. I even offered to provide the other opinion after I received Dr. Appelblatt's review. Still no. Anyone with policies like this, is someone I can't trust.

03/10/10 1 1 1 1 I have never met a doctor who is less compassionate than Dr. Appelblatt. Appointments are often uncomfortable due to her improper comments and prickly moods. Average wait time is 2 hours. She misdiagnosed me twice and my surgery was unsuccessful. Her heart, if she has one, is not in it.  Respond

26/07/10 2 1 2 2 What a joke. I go to a follow up appointment and wait OVER AN HOUR. Now over 2 months later I get a bill for a visit that never happened. Also I was told that ALL PAYMENTS were covered on my first visits payment. I even had to remind the staff on the 2nd time I went in that my first payment covered any follow up visit. Also I found some of the staff to be rude and some of the doctors comments to be rude and out of place. My advice: PASS.  Respond
