The fondest memories my husband and I remember is he treated us like human beings with the utmost respect as persons undergoing & thru the most terrifying times of our life not knowing if my husband would ever have use of his arm again after the original doctor said there was nothing else could be...more

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!

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.
