Dr Amaro is a wonderful doctor, seemed very concerned with my disease and willing to help me get back to a state of good health. I would highly recommend him.
in Round Rock, TX |
I would not hesitate to recommend Dr Amaro and TDDC. Dr. Amaro is a very personable doctor with lots of patience and understanding, especially with an elderly patient like me. when I first went to him with a very serious problem, he was very reassuring and did a miraculous job of healing. He never rushes you when you have concerns and listens very carefully and then explains very carefully what can be done.

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
Pflugerville, TX |
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!
