Dr Amro was my physician while I was in the hospital. He wanted me to call and get a stress test completed within a few days of discharge. I first called the office and they said there was no order when it was clearly in my orders. After a week I was able to get scheduled with the assistance of my primary care doctor. The stress test was completed and I was told if it was bad I would bet a call in a day or so but other wise it would be about a week. It has now been 3 weeks and no phone call

I have been seeing Dr. Amro for about six and a half years now maybe 7 since I had a angioplasty. He doesn't rush through an office visits and is very thorough with all that he does. He asked questions and always ask if I have any questions. I highly recommend him and he is a family man so he understands the importance of getting healthy for my family too! Thank you Dr Amro
