Knoxville, TN |
Good doctor, very poor at maintaining schedule. Sad to say but I along with other family members will be changing from KOC to TOC where things are run much more efficiently.

Dr Ambrosia has done 2 bicep tendon tear repair surgeries on me, both with excellent results. I was basically crippled before the surgeries. I highly recommend Ambrosia for surgery.

He does not listen to his patients. He knows better than them. He did not even document when I told him I was in pain or had problems with my hand. After surgery he didn't even go out to speak with my family. He called them on the phone. More issues than I care to write. Go see someone else!
in Maryville, TN |
I waited 1 1/2 hours to be seen then Dr spent maybe 15 minutes with me telling me he was referring me to a Spine Doctor and the referral was never made by him or his staff. I will seek out my own Spine Doctor as not happy with patient care nor their follow-up.
New York, NY |
Over books is an understatement. My appointment was 8:40. At 10:30 I got up and walked out without seeing him. Going to find a different doctor who respect patients time.
