I have read other reviews and don't understand why my experience was so different. He glossed over all my symptoms: rashes, itching, and pain on my back.. He said I have dry skin. I have been plagued with oily skin my entire life. Also I use coconut oil on my skin daily. He didn't think any further testing was needed. Dr. Ammar is not a thoughtful, careful doctor at all. My health has declined and the skin symptoms are worse. I have gone elsewhere for care.

Dr. Ammar is incredibly thorough, compassionate, patient and explanatory during the visit. His actual work is unbelievable...the results of his mohs surgeries is exceptional. His attention to details is great and he is meticulous in his work. The best doctor I have ever interacted with and his dedication to his work is of highest level. A true professional and an artist in his work. Highest recommendation.
