I am a board certified Pediatrician, mother and wife. I earned my medical degree from the University Of Virginia School Of Medicine in 1981. I was admitted to Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society and was recognized by the American Medical Women′s Association for scholastic excellence.
Dr. Appel was on a Navy Medical scholarship while at UVA and did her internship and residency at the San Diego Naval Medical Center.
She is a member of the following organizations:
I started Cross Creek Pediatrics in 1994 and have seen the practice expand to four providers. We strive to provide excellent care for our sick and well patients. We believe in the importance of well child care from birth through adolescence and in the prevention of disease by vaccination. We take pride in our comfortable, bright, and child-friendly facility.
We maintain privileges at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center.
Dr. Appel has two grown children, one grandson and a husband who is a practicing Pediatric and Adult Urologist in Fayetteville.
″I truly care for each and every one of my patients. My goal is to make sure that all of my patients enter adulthood healthy. Our children are the truest legacy we leave the world.″
