Dr. Amberg is very kind and attentive. I get the impression that he has seen a lot of things and is not likely to be caught off guard by something unknown. He is practical in his approach, and I appreciate his honest candor. He's strait with me about my health, and my lifestyle choices etc.

Dr. Amberg always makes me feel important. He listens carefully and asks pertinent questions. He is a very caring doctor who makes you feel that you are the most important person in the world. I highly recommend him. I have been a patient for over 20 years.
