    We just love Dr. Amaro, we felt like during the consultation he was really listening to everything and loved the fact he was writing it down with a pen and paper. Yes he does go back and enter the data into the computer system but that just makes us feel he really care's because he is doing that extra step. Will recommend Dr. Amaro and Thank him so much for taking such good care of his patient.

    I love dr. Amaro he's helped me so much and he got me really healthy. The only problem is if I call in after-hours to ask a question or have someone call me back everytime I press an option it says invalid entry that is my only complaint otherwise I really love him and his staff

    I have only seen Dr. Amaro once, but he greatly impressed my daughter and I with his willingness to listen to you and by the depth of his questions to you. As far as I am concerned he did not leave any stone unturned in his questions. He spent a great deal of time with me and made me feel as if he could solve my ongoing gastric problems. We will see.

    Dr. Amaro is a liar. I had a procedure done almost 2 years ago that he said he would re-code so that it would be billed as preventative. 2 years later and multiple dispute letters with the hospital and his office I am now fighting against a collection agency. I have tried to contact Dr. Amaro directly but he refuses to speak with me about what was said on the day of the procedure in front of other witnesses. Do not trust this man to handle your health!
