Professional Statement

  • Dr. Appel is out of network with all insurances, but will accept PPO plans that offer out of network benefits. Please check your insurance plan before scheduling.*
  • I am in solo practice using an integrated approach to early adolescent and young adult medicine. This is a general medical practice where I manage issues specific to children 10 years of age up to 35 yrs of age. My specialty areas include fully integrating the mental health concerns with the physical aspects of medicine, specifically with ADD/ADHD,anxiety, social problems, depression, eating disorders and substance use. My approach is to help patients prevent illness and mental health dysfunction through a motivational approach. Please email me about your concerns before booking an appointment if needed.
  • Parenting teens can be a whole new experience after years of raising young children. As parents you have the day to day experience that has built a deep understanding of your children. But teens are different and sometimes more difficult to understand. With adolescents you may find yourself needing a new level of insight, support and guidance from your child's physician.
