I brought my 3-year-old daughter to see Dr. Apicella for a second opinion regarding surgery. Dr. Apicella was kind, compassionate and spent an unheard of amount of time with me and my daughter (more time than her pediatrician spends with her)! She told us she did not need surgery- what a relief. She gave her medicine to combat reflux and she is feeling 100% better. Best experience and results I’ve had from a doctor in almost 40 years. Highly recommend her!
