About Dr. Apfel

I am an optimistic and hopeful person. I know that life can change and that conditions don’t last forever. In my 30 years of experience, I know people can positively shift their perspective, their behavior, and their belief system. As a result, I find deep joy in helping patients like you get better and thrive.
