What People Say About Dr. Amy Day, MD
Reply
Dr. Day and the entire staff was excellent. Dr. Day spent 45 minutes in my initial consultation session for gull bladder surgery. I expected 15 minutes in and out. Dr. Day clearly and patiently walk me through each potential scenario and answering every question. We selected Dr. Day from other Doctors that were closer to our home due to concerns of Bedside manner from other patients. Dr. Day was stellar in that department. Surgery was Thursday, back to work Monday. Thank you!

Dr. Day did surgery on me to fix my Inguinal (groin) hernia. Other health issues, necessitated Open surgery rather than Laparoscopic. She simply oozes with confidence and professionalism, and the results was everything I could hope for - completely relaxed going into the procedure, and minimal discomfort postop! I would recommend Dr. Day to anyone in a heart beat!
