Guardian Angel Pin 2nd time!

Friday, May 20, 2016

Here is what Emily had to say.....

"I was blessed to have chosen Dr. Appel for my breast reconstruction surgery process after interviewing many doctors in Charlotte. The past year has been very challenging and stressful with chemotherapy and radiation and it turned out that the bright spot was working with Dr. Appel and his team. They helped me get excited for my surgeries and celebrate the milestones that I was achieving. Dr. Appel always answered my list of questions and concerns and prepared me for my surgeries and recovery. I was very confident in his abilities and skills and appreciated his kindness and empathy as well. Jennifer Little was also a huge help during this process. She spent lots of time answering my long list of questions as well as assuring me that I was doing well Jennifer always had a smile on her face and was very encouraging and kind. Dr. Appel and Jennifer were definitely Guardian Angels on my breast cancer journey and I am forever grateful for their help to get me over the finish line on my journey."
