    Our wait time went past our appointment time. Also, we filled out our medical records online but when we got there we had to do it again. (My daughter and I).

    Dr. Apel and Dr. Smith are the absolute best providers! Dr. Apel delivered our little girl in 2018 and saved her life. She’s been nothing short of amazing since the day I met her.

    Dr. Smith is so kind and patient. She took the time to listen to my concerns and explained the different options that I may take and the benefits of each option. The staff are very welcoming and friendly. I have been seeing Dr. Smith for over five years and I am very thankful for Dr. Smith:
