Dr Apicella was both sharp and efficient. She carefully listened to my issues and came up with solutions. She had a great approach to problem-solving. The appointment was very quick (15min), which seems to be the norm for NYC doctors who have to go through a high volume of patients. However, with Dr. Apicella I didn't feel rushed. She spent the time we needed and we stopped naturally when we didn't have any more to discuss. Also, I appreciated that she listened without second-guessing what I was saying. She was straightforward and direct and I felt like I made good progress.

Dr. Apicella was fun and helpful, but I didn't feel like she was completely thorough. She realized already after beginning a procedure that there was another instrument that helped her identify something else that wasnt going to be addressed with the procedure she already began.

it was fine, they just perform services that a lot of insurance companies dont completely cover and should inform you of this before your visit. in my case, i declined an expensive scope because they couldnt tell me how much of it insurance would cover. so basically i wasted my time and money as the appointment was a complete waste of time

Overall experience was great. Only drawback was that there were large gaps of time (10-20 minutes) between checking in, getting brought back to room for initial examination by nurse, visiting with doctor, doctor performing follow up exam. Definitely would go back because Dr Apicella was great and helpful, just the patient experience left a little to be desired.

Awful experience starting with the wait time, unprofessional staff and with the doctor rushing to get me out of her office as soon as possible and charging me with an obscene medical bill. I would never go back and also I would never recommend this place to anyone. There are better doctors out there who really respect their patient's time and concern.
