Hospital Affiliations

Christiana Care Hospital

Jessica Apel, D.O. completed her medical training at Midwestern University’s Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine after graduating from the State University of New Jersey–Rutgers College with a BA in Biology. She joined Christiana Care for residency training in Obstetrics and Gynecology and graduated in 2012. Dr. Apel became Board Certified in January of 2015.

Dr. Apel is a Fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG). She loves practicing Obstetrics. Creating a safe environment with open communication during an emotional charged pregnancy is her goal. Her favorite patient visit is the 6-week post partum follow up. Snuggling newborns and listening to women discuss their transition after delivery into motherhood for the first, second, or fifth time is complex and rewarding. Dr. Apel loves being in the operating room with Dr. Smith. Over the years, both have cultivated their minimally invasion surgical techniques and compliment each other fluidly in the operating room. Dr. Apel is also passionate about fitness and self care for both herself and her patients. Some of her other areas of expertise and interests are:

Abnormal Pap Smears Management, Adolescent Gynecology, Alternative Pain Management During Labor, Breast Feeding Education and Support, Contraceptive Management, Endometrial Ablations, Endometriosis Management, Exercise in Pregnancy, Family Planning, Fertility, High Risk Pregnancy, IUD-Intrauterine Device, Laparoscopic and Minimally Invasive Surgery, Menopause, Menstrual Disorders, Nexplanon, Pelvic Prolapse, Pelvic Pain, Practice of Mindfulness, Vulvar Disorders, Complicated Vaginitis, Preconception Counseling, Pregnancy Loss, Preventative Medicine for Women’s Health, Urinary Incontinence

She and her husband George enjoy time together at their home in Kennett Square, PA. Their daughter, Ella Mae, started Fourth Grade this year and loves softball. Georgie began second grade and is busy with football and baseball. Jess enjoys exercise and believes physical movement is critical in maintaining young and vitality. As a previous collegiate athlete: weight lifting, cycling, yoga, her Peloton including App, and running help keep a balance of mental and physical health during her chaotic and demanding schedule. Her newest interest is in both functional medicine and exploring alternative pathways for healthier living. She also enjoys cooking in her kitchen by the fireplace; skiing; watching documentaries; being outside; helping to farm her land with her husband; playing with their Newfoundland puppy, Hawthorne; and sitting on her porch with a hot cup of coffee.

Dr. Apel truly believes in creating a strong referral network of the best experts who provide care for women in our community. Women Living Well has been a dream of hers since medical school. She envisions a practice where women are healthy both in mind and body.

Patient Reviews

Overall patient rating for Jessica Apel

Childbirth / Labor & Delivery

This practice came highly recommended and after my experience I can say the same. They are very thorough and responsive. You never feel rushed during office visits. Your questions are always answered and when you call in to speak with the nurse you are sure to get a prompt response.

Office Visit / Follow-up

Jes is super easy to talk to and attentive. I’m really comfortable with her and she really listens and provides relevant feedback. She’s thorough when reviewing treatment options and supportive of my decisions. I also appreciate that she’s flexible with her time. If I have questions or decide I want to start a treatment we’ve discussed, I can send a message to the office instead of scheduling another appointment. This shows she’s also respectful of her patients’ time and finances. I’m also excited there’s a FNP that has started with the office and I’ve already scheduled my first appt with her. It’ll be so convenient to have my GP and OB in the same office.

Dr. Apel is just amazing with her knowledge and bedside manner. She has a very calming presence and I feel very lucky to have had her deliver our daughter. Even my husband loves her and he has terrible white-coat syndrome haha. Anyone that chooses Dr. Apel for their care should feel confident that they have a doctor and surgeon who truly cares about the quality of the care she gives her patients.
