Great visit with a great PRP treatment on 7/15/2021. Dr. Amback explained everything as she was doing the PRP injections in my L3,L4,L5 and my SI joint. I would highly recommend her to anyone considering this treatment.

Dr. Ambach is very knowledgeable about regenerative medicine and all the injection therapies. She is very concerned with her patients’ well-being and looks for solutions that will work for each patient. She has helped my lumbar pain tremendously with PRP in both the epidural space and facet joints. She’s awesome.

My experience at Dr. Ambach’s office was exceptional. As a former dentist I want to compliment Dr. Ambach on a wonderful caring staff. First impressions are so important and her staff went above and beyond. Dr. Ambach did a neck injection and I found her equipment and her administration of the injection were painless and flawless. I want to thank the entire office for a very professional experience. Paul

It's so nice to see a physician and be welcomed, listened to and given a realistic explanation of what the issues are and how to address them. I wish we could replicate this process for other institutions both in and out of the medical field. Best experience in a doctor's office in a very long time. The entire staff was great.

Dr. Ambach and her staff over the past year have provide excellent care for my spinal stenosis treatments. They are first concerned with ME. They take the time and effort to understand ME and my health issues. We discuss what options I have, how to proceed with care and if what I see as the problem and the outcome that I am looking for is reasonable. I have fully and unlimited confidence in Dr. Ambach's care of my medical issues. Thank you.

I was having problems with my knees even going to the grocery store. I had to lean on a shopping cart. I live on the beach and couldn't walk very far on the beach without knees hurting. I had both stem cell and PRP treatments in both knees. I became pain free in 9 weeks! Minor flareups every once in a while for example when I carried four bags of heavy grocery bags upstairs. A little Alleve for 3 or 4 days and all good. Oh, I used to have problems going up and downstairs. No more. As I healed my knees became stronger and more flexible. For example, lowering myself to the floor and getting back up. Much better now. I am very thankful this treatment option was available. I did not want knee replacement surgery.

Every step of the way from the initial appointment through our treatment plan, recovery PT and now releasing me back into action, Dr. Ambach has been fantastic. I highly recommend Dr. Ambach and this facility for any orthopedic issues/needs.

I highly recommend Dr, Ambach, her staff and the PRP procedure. I had been in a car accident back in 2012, had a surgery on my shoulder and physical therapy, but things never really improved. I spent years dealing with chronic pain and flair ups. My son had heard about PRP and suggested I look into after being concerned about my chronic pain. I am soooo glad I did. The PRP with Dr Ambach and then my work with Megan at Evolve Physical Therapy has been life changing. I have full range of motion now and am pain free. Thank you to Dr. Ambach and Megan!!!

My experience was amazing! The staff did everything they could to keep me comfortable during the procedure. Dr. Ambach explained everything as she performed the procedure. The follow up by Dr. Ambach and her staff was very thorough. I would definitely recommend this. I have already noticed good results in the first 6 weeks.
