Patient Comments (2)
in Philadelphia, PA |
Fantastic he explained everything and took his time. He did not rush
Dr. Amaral is a phony. He talks a good game and you think he is a good caring doctor until you are out of the office and need him for something. My mother has a zillion doctors. None of them talk as much or performs like Dr. Amaral, but, whenever I need any of them for a script, emergency appointment or clerification about an episode she is experiencing with her illness, they are always there to help me. I am not one to pester doctors, either. If you are really sick, go to a different dr. 411..
