Patient Comments (7)

He is a very thorough yet kind doctor. I was trying to find out what was causing my symptoms for over two years. I went to Dr. Amarakone and he ran some new tests on me. He found my problem and has treated me since then. Now he has left SSM Health and I am trying to locate him. Fantastic doctor.
