Dr. El-Amm is not only the very best Dr. I have ever had (and Shay Samara) but also a friend. His caring attitude and manners are far greater than I could ever ask for. I LOVE this doctor and have had a second chance at life after a transplant with him beside me all the way. He isn't in in for the money. He is a gift from God who cares about all the patients. Highly recommend him 1000%, My name is Brenda and I approve this message!!!!!!Please Lord~let the hospital and ins. co sign a new contract
