As other reviewers wrote, I found her to be extremely attentive and thorough. She had obviously read my chart prior to my appt. and had written notes from it. I was seen on time. She completely answered my questions. My blood work was completed same day as my appt. and within hours her staff was reporting back to me the info from the lab work. Excellent care

Dr. Amezaga, is wonderful. Very thorough, kind and understanding. She makes sure I understand her directions. I was kinda scared when I first saw her cause I was having muscle tremors and Charlie horses. She did a lot of tests and explained everything completely.
