First time going here and we showed up 10 minutes early for paperwork before our actually appointment time. 40 minutes later we were called back and waited there another 10 minutes before my husband said somethin and the office ladies were rude back to him without apologizing for the wait. We ended up walking out and were never even seen. Waste of time.

I went in today to see Dr. Amar, he has helped me with an issue I have been dealing with for 6 plus months. He was very compassionate and actually listened to my concerns. I have in the past been to two urgent cares, the ER, primary care, nerologist, cardiologist and have not till today been given any answers or hope for this to go away. As a mother of 5 this was debilitating. I cant even begin to express the gratitude I have for this Dr. and his whole staff. Very nice people and place.

I trust the whole facility. I absolutely love Amar, we become good friends very trustworthy.

Absolutely terrible experience. I have had a bad ear infection for several months and went to see Dr. Amar. He was extremely condescending and offered absolutely no help to my situation. I had been getting over a cold at the time, but he claimed my cold was impossible to have because nothing was going around. He failed to realize I had been out of the country for 2 weeks. It ended with him telling me I was in denial and simply had allergies. I'm seeing another ENT because my symptoms remain.

Dr Amar takes his time to listen to your concerns and explains to you in great details what options you have. Been to many doctors here in the high desert and they all try to get you out off their office as soon as possible more like a production line, not In his office. He also has a great friendly, attentive, helpful staff. Thank you and your staff Dr Amar

Listened well. Showed real concern. I am a retired RN and he treated me with professional respect as a fellow medical practitioner. Fully explained his findings, diagnosis, and treatment plan. This was a most pleasant experience.
