Very rude, impatient staff. Won't take credit cards, so you can't use your flexible health spending card here. College student in town, owed $20 copay as didn't realize parents insurance upped specialists to $40. Instead of office

Asked Dr. Applegarth a question about the treatment he was proposing and he responded sarcastically "Should I just take out every mole on your body?" We were only talking about one mole that concerned him and I asked an honest, simple

I visited Applegarth Dermatology and paid the fee of $30 on 7/17/2012. Today (2/12/2013), I receive a letter in the mail dated 1/4/2013 that says if I do not pay $83 by 1/21/2013 (22 days ago), they will send me to a collection agency.

I was seen in the LaPorte office in January of 2012. Paid my co-pay with cash since they do not take anything else. Since I have good insurance I did not know that there was a balance due but two months after visit I received the a bill

Maybe I went on a bad day, but this was my first and most likely my last visit to Applegarth's. The office building is nice, but that was the only thing positive about my experience there. The receptionist (Teri) was extremely

It was my first time to the dermatologist and I was pretty hesitant for the fact that most specialists are impatient and quick to the point.
The music is very peaceful in the waiting area, when I was called back this young lady named lisa

Uncaring, uncompassionate , money hungry ! That sums it up. Dr.Tom shows no interest in listening or caring about your needs or the needs of family members.He accepts one opinion and thats his.He doesn't want to help you he wants to keep

No show fee when I cancelled over 24 hours earlier!Overcharged my insurance, and when trying to pay balance, they will NOT accept anything but check or cash!!!! Oh, and no drop off box to leave a payment; they conveniently close at 5 and open at 8. Talk about making it inconvenient for their patients! Staff is NOT friendly; will never go back!

For years I had a skin problem. I was miserable and saw many doctors, but nobody helped me. Many people I know have seen Dr. Applegarth and swear by him. So I made an appointment. He is worth the wait.

Dr. Applegarth knew what my condition was the second he saw it. The first medicine he used worked. I developed an allergy to that medication and he found another one that works just as well. I'm telling you, this man knows his stuff. I feel great.

I saw some reviews on this site that didn't match up with all the good things I had heard (and now know) about Dr. Applegarth. So I brought it up to him at my appointment. He said its sad but in his experience, complaints seem to revolve around people who don't want to pay their bills. I have had no problems with his office.

He helped me when nobody else could. I think he is a very nice man. I would recommend him highly.

doctor was nice, but the tables in the room were visibly dirty, as in there was brown dirt on the counter, and there was a DIRTY BAND-AID ON THE COUNTER when I came in. The doctor noticed and picked it up and apologized, but how does someone MISS THAT when preparing the check-up room? Disgusting...

I started with Dr. Applegarth when he first started his practice. He cared then, and took an interest in my skin problems. However, now he has many patients, (you cannot get in for months) and he just does not care about the job he is doing. He seems to only care about the money he can rake in. His office staff is rude. They would only accept cash, so I had to leave and go to an ATM machine to get some. They would not take a bank or credit card. His examine is hurried. He seems to like to give out ointments and pills, but does not get to the root of the problem. Places he has removed have left HUGE dips and scars in my skin. I have decided he is clueless. I DO NOT RECOMMEND going to him no matter what!! Go to Chicago or South Bend or anyplace other than to him!!!!

Pros: pretty office

Cons: only in it for the $$$$

I would suggest people go to one of the other doctors in their LaPorte office. I have had good experiences with both Dr. Andrew and Dr. Blomstedt. Much more professional. The pricing is the same and they don't do electronic payments either, but I have never been charged when I had to cancel an appointment.

Dr. Applegarth currently has a "no-show" policy which is counter to what I have ever experienced from other health professionals.

Here is how it works:

Regardless of whether you cancel in advance or not, you are charged a $25.00 no-show fee. The larger issue is that he flatly refused to accept payment on this ridiculous fee over the phone, but instead insists payment be made in-person at his office.

He refuses to change this policy in spite of the inconvenience and frustration is creates for his patients, claiming he has plenty of patients.

We will see if people continue to frequent his medical practice as his Customer Service Programs STINK.

Appears more concerned with Business than caring for patient's health. They do not accept electronic payments, when questioned stated they wanted to save the $00.40 per transaction...they overbilled my insurance and during dispute turned to collection, even after contacted...I strongly recommend not going to this practice!
