Dr. Kappel is truly the BEST in Orange County!!

Have you ever woken up and said, "I can't wait to go get needle pokes in my face today?!" Well, me neither, but the closest you will come is being a patient of Dr. Stefani Kappel's. Not only is she a brilliant and talented doctor but she is one of the most lovely people you will have the opportunity of knowing. From the moment you meet her, you will feel comfortable and at home.

5 out of 5 stars Mole Removal

Professional and friendly

I've seen Dr Kappel twice, once to remove some spots on my back and torso, and again for scholeratherapy behind my knees. Both procedures were virtually pain free and fast! Dr Kappel and her team were professional, organized and friendly. I felt very comfortable in her office and everything was explained very clearly and confidently to me. I highly recommend Dr Kappel!
