Dr. Darryl Appleton's Ratings
Dr Appleton and his staff are very caring and accommodating. Don't be fooled into negative reviews like the one below. Your their for a sleep study not to watch tv, sir you were attending a medical test, perhaps the tech you had was a bit rude but I have never had an issue with the techs at the Appleton Clinic and I have had many studies there. Besides were else can you go were you are treated with i bite to eat and coffee or tea at no cost before you leave. His office is like a 5 star hotel.
I don't mean to try the invalidate the person below's experience, but I had a very good experience at the Appleton Clinic last night. I think it was most likely a different technician than the one who was working on their night. My technician was very accommodating, he asked when I wanted to go to bed, put my electrodes on at that time and then told me to let him know when I was ready to go to bed. So I got there at 9, had my electrodes put on at 10:30, and went to bed at 11 - with plenty of time to get ready for bed and watch TV etc. The clinic itself is very comfortable and they even have breakfast and showers in the morning. The only thing they could do better is provide patients with some information about what to expect and what to bring on their website (which currently isn't working) or in a pamphlet before they go. I haven't actually seen Dr Appleton yet but his sleep clinic is definitely luxurious and the staff was great - at least the technician Ivan was! So don't worry like I did if you see that review below before you go, you could still have a good experience.
AVOID! the worst experience I've ever had, the technician responsible for me was extremely rude, barking commands at me constantly. I arrived at 9, filled out paperwork,by 915 the technician began putting electrodes on me. I informed him I wasn't tired yet and wanted to watch TV. The technician refused to allow me to watch TV saying "no, youre not allowed, youre going to bed now. You can't do anything unless I say yes" at 2:00am I had to go to the bathroom really badly, I waited almost 30 minutes for the tech to respond to me. When he came in hr started muttering in his native tongue. The staff was awful and the overall experience was the worst ever! AVOID THIS PLACE AT ALL COSTS, ASK YOUR DOCTOR FOR A DIFFERENT PLACE IF THEY SUGGEST YOU GO HERE

U R the Best Dr A
By far, Dr. Appleton is the best doctor I have had the honour of meeting. He explained every step in the complicated process of obtaining an apnea mask. He did not rush his time with me and personally gave me a tour of his facility. The staff made me feel welcome and comfortable as soon as I walked through their doors. The sleeping facility is better than some hotels I have stayed at. Each bedroom has their own bathroom, tv with 600+ channels, temper pedic mattresses, windows, etc. There is an awesome kitchen that is accessible for all patients. Unfortunately, Dr. Appleton has a very hectic schedule (only in Toronto for 1 week out of each month) but he is worth the wait. His respect and attention to detail is greatly appreciated. Thank you to him and his exceptional staff for not treating me as a patient - but as a friend.
Dr Appleton is very knowledgeable and extremely friendly. Unfortunately many doctor's lack a pleasant personality and genuine interest in your well being, they just want to get you out the door quick, with a prescription in your hand. Not Dr. Appleton. I was blown away by the modern, clean, comfortable setup of the sleep clinic when I was there to stay overnight. All the amenities and breakfast when you check out the next day. The staff is very friendly and take pride in ensuring you are comfortable at the clinic. Dr. Appleton thoroughly explained my sleep report and what treatment can be done. He was very flexible about when to see him next. Also, he inquired in detail about my reason for coming to the clinic for a sleep test and listened to me explain everything. He actually cared. Great personality and wonderful setup of the clinic. Though it was out of the way for me, I was happy afterwards that I came there.
Dr. Appleton's new office/sleep lab on Wilson Ave. in Toronto is a "state of the art" 5-STAR American luxury hotel compared to the typical utilitarian hospital-like sleep clinics in this city. His clinic is capable of overnight polysomnography as well as other sleep tests not usually provided elsewhere (ie. the MSLT and MWT). Luxury shower facilities and a kitchen are two added bonuses. As for the doctor himself, Dr. Appleton is very kind and extremely knowledgeable in treating cataplectic narcolepsy, idiopathic CNS hypersomnolence, sleep disordered breathing (apneas/hypopneas/RERAs), and periodic limb movements during sleep. In addition, unlike most sleep docs in Ontario, Dr. Appleton is a prescribing physician in the Xyrem Success Program, and he constantly strives to stay current with all the latest developments coming out of Stanford. And, as an American doctor, he can also prescribe US drugs not available in Canada if you visit his clinic in Florida. .../ Dominic Briganti
Dr. Appleton was great to deal with. He was knowledgeable, great bed side manner, willing to go the extra mile. The facilities, although new, were amazing, comfortable, and warm. It was not my first sleep study done, but it was one that was fully explained. The sleep technician, was AMAZING. Kind, friendly, really made the experience painless. The front reception staff, made me feel welcome as soon as i walked in, with a warm smile and hello. I would highly recommend this practice. Even the free parking was easy. Well done Dr. Appleton and all staff!!!!
Dr Appleton and the Appleton clinic changed my life. I woke up every day feeling like garbage; I assumed everyone felt this way in the mornings. I was referred to the Appleton clinic as was diagnosed with severe sleep apnea. I now have a CPAP machine and sleep well every night; I feel more alert, more energetic, more able to concentrate. Overall the quality of my life is way better. Dr Appleton is cool, smart, competent, and just a great doctor providing a great medical service. I can't recommend him enough!
