I can't say enough great things about Dr. Apple and her team. They are very thorough and make sure I haven't forgotten anything, explaining everything so that I can understand them and all the health care lingo. Going as far as to show me what exactly their looking at and explaining that further, really giving me a good idea as to what is happening in my own body.
