On my first visit, Dr Ambach did a very complete exam of my knees and she asked many questions concerning my problems. She did not rush me and gave me a chance to ask her my questions and understand her responses! Quite a change from what we are used to these days! She ordered MRI's and on my followup contact, again all the same concerns were provided. I am looking forward to seeing much improvement in these 'old' knees after the procedure!!

Dr. Mary Ambach is one of the most caring, concerned, knowledgeable, patient, and healing person I ever met. I had been in terrible pain with a torn hamstring and rotator cuff that was impacting my busy life for 3 years on and off. I met Dr. Ambach in her Los Angeles office in March, 2019. She read my MRI’s and proceeded to do an ultra sound of the affected areas. After looking at the tears she came up with a few different ways we could address the situation. We discussed the options at great length and decided to go with Prolo therapy, which is homeopathic. During the procedure Dr.Ambach explained exactly what she was doing and always asked if I as in pain. I never felt any pain during the injections or after that a bit of icing did not help. I left her office feeling like I was on the right track to healing my body. (Part 1 of 2)

Dr. Ambach took a lot of time to look at my previous MRI and explain them to me. She was very clear about the next steps and I was very impressed with her professionalism, intelligence and kindness.

My experience with Dr. Ambach, was amazing! She was caring and listen to my concerns. She was very informative and took the time to explain every step of my bone marrow procedure. The whole staff was great and all work together as a championship quality team! She Is definitely on the top tear of doctors in LA.

Dr. Ambach is wonderful human being and truly cares about her patients. Unlike other doctors, she's not in this profession for the money. My only regret is that I didn't find her sooner. If you are "thinking" of getting better, STOP IT!! You don't have to live in pain. Just pick up the phone and make an appointment. You will not regret it.

Takes the time to listen to my problems, figure out a plan of action, and helps me successfully carryout said plan. Even after everything is addressed during my appointments Dr. Ambach makes sure all of my concerns were covered. Very comforting during injections (performed at least 10 on me) and always makes sure you are not experiencing too much discomfort. Could not be more satisfied.

What an incredible refreshing experience it was to consult w/ Dr Ambach. I was truly treated with the utmost respect and compassion from the moment I entered her office. Dr Ambach was professional, personable, and clearly an extremely knowledgeable medical practitioner. I would highly recommend The Orthohealing Center to everyone - - from young athletes to the more mature members of our community. Thank you for all the impeccable listening skills and overwhelming bedside manner.
