Patient Comments

Dr Apple is a very kind and understanding physician. She always keeps an open mind and fully listens to whatever concerns I have. She not only keeps my health history in mind with every decision she makes, but also encourages me to express my own opinions or treatment suggestions. I would recommend her to all of my friends and family members.

I love Dr. Apple. She's smart, kind, funny, responsive, professional, knowledgeable and very attentive to my concerns and my comments. She's my ideal doctor (and if ever I have to give her up I'm going to be very sad). I trust her to listen to me, not just deliver formula responses. That means a great deal to me.

I have seen many doctors, including primary care and specialist, in my 60 plus years in California and Tennessee. I find Dr Apple to be one of the two BEST DOCTORs I've had in terms of overall thoroughness and "bedside manner." I feel fortunate to have found Dr Apple to take care of me -- so much so, I recommended her to my husband who is now also her patient.

Dr Rachel Apple is your best primary care physician. I have never had a more vibrant, warm and engaging physician. We talk through my plan of care like colleagues and prioritize what to work on. She really listens and remembers my preferences. She should win the award for making healthcare personal!!!
