Dr. Amis did surgery on my eleven year old son. He was very kind, attentive, and could not have asked for anyone better! He took the time to answer questions, explain things and you could tell he really cares! I would definitely recommend him! Thanks Dr. Amis for taking great care of my kiddo!

Dr. Amis is very professional, courteous and a very good listener. I never feel rushed and he answered all of my questions both pre and post hand surgery and through out the follow up visits. I highly recommend Dr. Amis.

Dr Amis is as professional a doctor as I have encountered in my 71 years. I felt fully cared for and am sure my arthritic thumb will get better now.
