About Me

*Dr. Appleby is not currently accepting new HMO patients or under 6 years old. 

Becoming a physician fulfills my life-long desire for a career that allows me to assist people in making positive changes in their lives.

Originally from the European country of Serbia, Dr. Appleby moved to the United States to complete her medical education and training through a three-year residency program at the University of California, San Francisco.

Dr. Appleby chose internal medicine because of the patient-centered aspect of the specialty and the opportunity it gives her to create long-term relationships with her patients. She believes it embodies the very core of medicine and demands an intimate understanding of the broad medical spectrum.

Outside of the office, Dr. Appleby loves spending time with her family. Her other interests include playing sports, traveling, music and the arts.
