What our patients say

“During this traumatic time and pandemic, our lives are often surrounded by fear. In December 2020, I had to see Dr Apffelstaedt for an important visit. I was pleasantly surprised to see how well Covid-19 processes are monitored and managed at the practice. The doctors and all staff adhere to these same protocols. Even whilst having a mammogram, ultrasound or any other visits, COVID protocols are strictly adhered to. I am grateful to the team for making sure that it is always a relaxed and safe experience.”

Rachelle Barioli

“In May 2020 I discovered a small lump in my breast. In the following weeks I had to visit Dr Apffelstaedt quite a few times. I was pleasantly surprised by the efficiency and strict protocols adhered to by the friendly staff and doctors, in spite of the difficult circumstances caused by Covid-19. I would encourage you to stay healthy by keeping your appointments regularly. I am certainly very glad I did.”
