Great Staff! They take great care of their patients. Was my first time in the office & I felt right at home. The entire staff, from the doctor on down, were professional, caring, & friendly. Dr. Appleby's assistant was a hoot! Lover her to pieces! Thank you guys so much for everything you do!
The staff are very friendly and respectful. Dr. Appleby and his team are the best!
The staff & my surgeon Dr. Appleby was very patient, respectful & compassionate. I was very nervous about my vein closure procedure, but they helped ease my nerves & the nurses kept my focus on my family by asking me questions the entire time. I plan on continuing my treatments with them. Thanks, Coastal Vascular & Vein.
Truly an exceptional staff in Dr. Appleby's West Ashley office. Starts with front office staff, continues with nursing staff and concludes with Linda, a true asset to Dr. Appleby! My husband could not have gotten better care.
Besides being very professional and knowledgeable, Dr. Appleby and his PA Linda make the whole experience outstanding: Having so many visits with them their positive attitude and willingness to explain all details have never changed! My one word to describe this experience is awesome! From the receptionists, to the techs, to Dr. Appleby, and especially his PA Linda Watson, I say thank you! I must say you always seem to make my day!
Everyone I came into contact with, from the front desk, to the PA, to the intern, to Dr. Appleby, was professional, friendly, and supportive. They're a great group.
