Patient Comments (4)
in Houston, TX |
the staff is rude, dr. was an hour late. The nurse stated that him being late was the "usual". he never spoke when he finally walked in.. Searches for my babies heartbeat for literally 30 seconds and says "yep I don't hear one" walks out and we wait for another 45 minutes for an ultrasound. I look out and he's on the computer in his office. @ the ultrasound he says "oh there it is" come back in 4 weeks. Very impersonal, dry, NEVER coming back.

Dr. Amaro is excellent at listening to your needs and concerns. He is the kind of Doctor that takes that time to ask how you are doing? Every visit is pleasant and the staff are friendly. I have been seeing Dr. Amaro for more than 8 years. He is a cool dr. I highly recommend him.

The most terrible experience. On my very first time meeting him he walked in the room said his name and told me to lay down and open my legs. Didn't explain what he was doing didn't ask me if I had questions or concerns, didn't even attempt to smile or make small talk. I will never be back. I couldn't imagine seeing such an unprofessional awkward doctor my entire pregnancy

Throughout my pregnancy I got to see Dr Amaro only twice! He doesn't spend enough time with the patient after a looong wait (40 minutes +) and he doesn't listen to your questions or gives you a chance to ask. I wouldn't recommend this Dr. He was on leave when I gave birth and I had no Dr to take care of me and this is not the first time he goes on leave during my pregnancy period. The front desk ladies are very rude too.
