We brought our 12 year old daughter to Dr. Apfel in 1996, where he quickly diagnosed her with a congenital heart defect. He was very caring and attentive. He quickly arranged for her to have corrective surgery to be done. He carefully explained all of the details of her care, so we could understand them, and what we could do. He made us feel like family, and that we could call on him whenever needed. My daughter is 34 years old, has 4 children, and living healthy life, thanks to Dr Apfel's care.
