Ratings for Dr. Stephen N. Aprill
Dr. Aprill is an excellent old-school family doctor. He genuinely likes people and is interested in you and how you feel. He's a very close observer and takes the time to listen. He wants to work with you to improve and maintain your health. No fancy trappings, no email, no credit cards accepted (!) - just a warm, caring, intelligent doctor.
I've been pleased with Dr. Aprill, and haven't found that he writes the most expensive prescription. He'll prescribe generics when available and tell you when they are not. His receptionist is a bit gruff, but that's not why I choose a doctor. If you want soft music, warm lights and expensive waiting room furniture, he's not the one. if you want a doctor who tells it like it is, and actually talks to you about your health, he is an excellent choice.
Dr. is a great physician until he writes you a prescription and since the place is always crawling with drug reps, he will write you the most expensive drug possible!! And if you need front end staff help, forget it, his cranky wife Elaine is too busy being messing around on Facebook or talking daytime soaps with the staff!! Do yourself a favor, find another doctor!
Dr Aprill has been our family doctor for nearly 10 years and has been outstanding on every level. His offices staff is top notch and caring. We've adopted them all as family members. He could not be paid enough to do what he does in the manner in which he it. He encourages your participation in your own health as well as offers solicited and unsolicited advice just the way you would want your doctor to be!
Have been a patient of Dr Aprill since 1990. Although he has little patients for those who do not follow his advice on their healthcare needs, he is informative, caring and has a great sense of humor. I have recommended him to many of my friends and, with the exception of one who did not follow his advice, they all feel as I do about him. Great doctor who truly cares about his patients!!!
Straight-talking, tells it like he sees it, sometimes seems a bit gruff - I like him! Doesn't beat around the bush, but listens well and appointments are collaborative ventures, as is treatment. If you want it candy-coated and PC - he may not be the Dr for you. If you want up to date, knowledgeable medicine that is participative - I recommend him.
Doctor Aprill and his entire staff are wonderful. They actually care about what is going on with you. Doctor Aprill will not only talk to you about what he is doing and why, he'll recommend things to "google" so you can educate yourself on what he's thinking about diagnostically. He'll listen to homeopathic remedy questions and often validates them. He'll send you your lab results in a letter to you - with a writtem summation that you can understand about the results.
