What People Say About Dr. Hammad Amer, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply Flag
I first saw Dr. Amer when admitted to Chandler Hospital as an emergency patient. Later, I saw him in his office for a follow-up visit. Dr. Amer is one of the nicest doctors I have seen (and I have seen a lot of them!) He was patient with all of my questions, and my husband's questions. He did not rush me, and TALKED TO ME (rather than typing on a computer the entire time). I liked that he suggested a conservative approach to my illness. My highest recommendation for Dr. Amer.

Dr. Amer talks a good fight, but he is not thorough in explaining all that might go wrong with your surgery. Surprises can be in store. He scores poor on follow-up and answering questions. Not recommended by me.

Dr. Amer is fabulous. He and his staff treated my mother like family. We went to Dr. Amer for a second opinion and are very glad we did. We were very nervous regarding her carotid surgery and he made time to explain all the details thoroughly. She is doing well with no further mini-strokes!

Dr Amer is very knowledgeable and took the time to explain my condition and the subsequent surgery. Would not go any where else. Very busy office, sometimes there is a wait but worth it. I have a lot of trust in Dr Amer and his staff.

Dr. Amer saved my husband's leg. We can't thank him enough. He has a phenomenal bedside manner and although very busy made time to explain the treatment plan and options thoroughly. We were told by another surgeon that my husband's leg needed amputation and were recommended to see Dr. Amer. He was able to restore blood flow and we are very grateful. I highly recommend Dr. Amer, he is a wonderful doctor and a blessing to us.

Dr. Amer is a fantastic doctor. He treated my mother's aortic aneurysm after she was told by 2 other surgeons that it was inoperable. He explained everything in detail and made us feel very comfortable with his plan. He and his staff are wonderful and I highly recommend him.

Surgery failed and 7 days in the I C U. Two months to recover, so I could get the right AAA repair by another surgeon.
