Dr Amis is a kind person who treats his patients with respect, while diagnosing with point-on questions about symptoms and progression of the problem. He is thorough in his explanations and options. His wonderful technician was able to x-ray my wrist so a fracture was found that a prior Urgent Care visit and x-ray did not.

Dr Amis is a highly competent physician and very pleasant, too. Gives clear answers and educates well. He “fixed” What ever has been wrong with me each time I’ve had occasion to see him. Been my doc since 2019. Office staff helpful and friendly.

Dr. Amis was fabulous! Professional, yet personable, competent, kind and compassionate. He assessed my problems well, answered my innumerable questions and provided (but didn’t push) for the surgical fix I needed. I would happily go back for any future hand/wrist/arm issues at all, and would heartily recommend him to any friend, family or foe. :). The office staff is refreshingly human and the environment un-intimidating. Having some medical background myself, my standards are high and seldom met. Dr. Amis met & exceeded them. I give him a 10! ??

Dr. Amis performed a trigger finger release for me yesterday. Prior to my procedure, he explained everything thoroughly and in language I could understand so I knew what to expect. He encouraged questions and made sure that I knew exactly what would happen each step of the way. I asked many questions, all of which he patiently answered. He was concerned about my comfort and pain level the entire time and spent extra time cleaning my hand prior to beginning. He referred to this as “overkill.” I call it meticulous caution. Dr. Amis made me feel relaxed and comfortable throughout the visit and surgery. This is the second time I visited him for a procedure. If necessary, I would return to him again and again because I trust him explicitly. He’s a competent surgeon and a wonderful person. Every member of his staff is friendly, kind and efficient. COVID precautions are carefully followed. If you need a hand specialist, look no further than Dr. Amis and his staff.

Positive energy... customer service was exceptional. DR. Amis performed surgery on my hand for Dupreyten's Contracture. The procedure was exactly as he described it. The whole process was painless, and took 30 minutes. We had a friendly dialogue during entire process. I have 99% use of the affected finger with zero pain or bruises afterwards. I consider this to be my ' medical miracle'! My only regret is that I did not do it sooner.

I had a very serious hand injury where I ruptured at least one tendon in all four fingers. Dr. Amis performed an almost 6 hour surgery and repaired all the ruptured tendons. A little over 3 months post op I was playing golf and working out. I feel incredibly fortunate given the injury I sustained and without a doubt owe Dr. Amis more than words can describe. I couldn’t recommend him more.

I had open carpel tunnel surgery performed and I am very happy with the outcome. Dr. AMIS used local anesthesia only, and it was just awesome. No pain, quick, easy, and just after 24 hrs it feels so much better. His staff is very courteous and shows a genuine concern for you well being. I will definitely be getting my other hand repaired in the near future.

Met me Dr. Amis for an initial eval and consult. He and his team were prompt, friendly, professional and informative. I was provided with options with the accompanying risks and benefits. My questions were answered fully and without rush. We completed the interview with a short and long term plan of care. I also received an in office procedure. Throughout the procedure, I was assessed for discomfort or pain--there was none! Will return.

Respects your concerns and questions and gives an assessment with options for the best outcome for the patient. Not the first time I’ve been here, Dr Amis along with Dr Gallagher pretty much reconstructed my left arm after a very traumatic injury years ago and it is working perfectly fine. Wouldn’t leave my care to anyone other than Dr Amis or Gallagher.
