in Austin, TX |
No problems w procedure, all staff very professional and helpful. Dr. Amato explained everything she was to perform, no surprises. My two week followup appointment went well, one little exception, my appointment was at 3pm, didn't get to see her until about 45 minutes later. She apologized which I appreciate, most doctors don't, its as if their time is more important than yours.

Dr. Amato performed my surgery and was great to work with throughout the process. She takes the time to answer your questions and shows genuine concern for the well-being of her patients.
