Not sure what's going on with this guy but he no longer takes appointments? Been waiting for tests results for a month now. Only seen him once.
Caring, thorough, pleasant, and compassionate. I have been a patient of Dr. Applegate for 15 years. He is driven to find solutions for treatment. Excellent physician! Cannot praise enough !!!
The best in and out quit
Dr. Applegate is a fantastic doctor. He takes the time to listen and he is great with my elderly parents. He makes you feel very comfortable and he always keeps up with current medical practices.
I saw Dr. Applegate on a Saturday which I totally appreciate that their office is open extended hours, but I did not feel like he was willing to address all of my questions and concerns, I did feel rushed and feel like only 1 out of 2 of my concerns were addressed. I feel like he just wanted to lock onto 1 thing and only address that, at that point I could tell exactly where the conversation was going and how it would end. I felt a little pressured to just accept what he was saying without any discussion. I know doctors need to maintain professional distance and control of the situation but how can you treat my problems If I don't even feel comfortable enough to express myself. I definitely felt like part of an assembly line rather than a person.
Wonderful caring man
Dr. Applegate always takes the time needed to discuss symptoms and options. Never rushes through an appt.
Excellent communicator who puts you at ease and spends as much time with you as you need. Explains issues clearly.
Dr. Applegate is an excellent Doctor and I have been seeing him for several years, however my most recent visit will most likely be my last. Today I waited for over an hour before leaving. While waiting there were four patients of various doctors discussing the very long wait times at the practice. One lady said that she brings a book or 2 and expects to wait for nearly 2 hours. The last time I needed to see a doctor I waited for an hour and a half before leaving. I re-scheduled that apointment for the first appointment of the day on a different day, but still waited for 30 minutes. Shame on me for not leaving the practice sooner.
Dr. Applegate was not very thorough, but the worst part was the office staff.. I was in serious pain and they said it would be two months before I could get in for an ultrasound.. ended up seeing another doctor who found a penetrating stomach ulcer.
I called while having a small stroke; they set up appt 2 days later. He said there was nothing wrong. Said no stroke.Said MRI just showed some plaque in small arteries. Said 137/95 BP was ok. Needed to be high to push blood thru arteries. A dr-friend referred me to neurologist. Neurologist said MRI showed 12+ small strokes. Said urgent to lower BP, get BP cuff and check BP 3/wk, take Plavix. Ordered carotid artery ultra sound. Lucky that I had someone refer me to specialist. Dr. Applegate's lack of knowledge and non-care could have killed me.
