This was one of the worst experiences of my life! I debated on taking the time to post a review, but I received a bill. Every time I see or hear anything about this Doctor and his staff I cringe. I had a wonderful Doctor for 20+ years by the name of Dr.Rizk. Dr.Rizk, retired in Dec. 2017 and forwarded my records to Dr.Amaro's office. I needed my Well Woman's exam and I faithfully take them on time every year and didn't take the time to review Dr.Amaro's reviews (worst mistake). Annual exams are covered by insurance. I was able to speak with the doctor prior to the exam and explained to him how my menopause was coming along, but also shared I had experienced the death of my BF (suffered a heart attack) while we were on vacation. So to say the least anything that didn't feel normal to me I was on high alert. My mom had breast cancer, so I get mammograms faithfully. Exam was performed without a hitch. I was working out and explained that he would see in my huge file (Dr. Rizk) I am aller

Would give less stars if I could. This doctor refuses to talk to patients over the phone about any issues. He refuses to renew prescriptions, even for just one month until you can get in to see him. It doesn't matter if it causes you to lapse on your medications. The front desk staff is unsympathetic and rude.

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.
