New patient visit for my 16 year old daughter. He was funny, professional, explained everything so that she understood. She was scheduled for outpatient procedures for the following week. He saw her prior to procedures and came to discuss with me immediately after.

Dr. Ammar is wonderful! Yes, he does tend to run behind, but I think that is because he spends time with his patients doing thorough examinations and listening to our problems and concerns. I don't know about you, but I would rather wait for a doctor who genuinely cares for my daughters well being, than someone who rushes through appointments to stay on schedule. His whole staff is VERY helpful and friendly and has gone above and beyond for us! I don't usually write reviews, but after reading all of the bad ones, I can't help but think it's because people don't take time to write good reviews. I almost didn't go here because of the reviews and I am so glad it was the only one my insurance would cover, because our experience has been wonderful!

Dr. Ammar is textbook with no personal skills or bedside manners. From the moment he walked through the door, he was condescending with us and made our daughter very uncomfortable. He shows no compassion to the patient nor does he speak well with children, putting them Arnold ease. He’s even worse with his communications with parents, we left put appointment feeling very uneasy and will not be moving forward using this doctor. Also, on a side note, time management is terrible, wait time was 2hr

First appointment was scheduled at 10:30 a.m. but the doctor showed up at 1:p.m. He didnt apologies at all for been so late. Didnt show any compasion or sensibility to my daughter. Today we were schedule for a colonoscopy at 8:30 a.m. At the hospital we learned that the appointment was rescheduled and my daughter has to wait until late afternoon. No body called us to inform about it. Also the staff said that he usedto do this to his patients. I dont recommend Dr. Ammar at all. The worse!

Our second visit was terrible. We arrived a few minutes early. After an hour of waiting to be called back my 2 yo was getting restless and I was getting a bit irritated. The desk called the MA. I ask why it took until 11am for a 10am appt. She said because it was a specialty clinic. She got rude when I pressed her for a better answer. Two managers came in to smooth things out with conflicting reasons. One said they had late patients, the other unexpected ones. The doctor finally came in at 11:45

Dr. Ammar seems to be knowledgeable however, i didn’t see a true compassion for children. Dr. Ammar is more matter of fact. I would have liked to have seen him be more personal with my child. The staff has not done well at returning phone calls. I’ve had to call twice, on two separate occasions now. I do not appreciate this and it’s very unprofessional.

Dr. Ammar is a caring physician. He takes the time to explain issues and encourages questions. He and his staff are always welcoming and professional. He (they) talk to my child vs. at him. In the past, I was made to feel like I made mistakes with my child but thanks to Dr. Ammar and his team, my faith has been restored in doctors.
