Dr. Amar is one of the best drs I have encountered. She is extremely professional and is super thorough during each of our visits. She has provided an expert level of care and has made herself accessible in the case of last minute appointments. Dr. Amar has several locations available for appointments. Her staff members are professionals and are incredibly attentive to all patients needs or request. Patient waiting time is no longer than 10 to 15 mins. Dr. Amar is very much a people person that

While I respect you as a "doctor", you have lost me as a "patient" And, here are the reasons why! l. Your air conditioning wasn't even working on a hot day. 2. The "girls" that worked there totally unprofessional and not very bright! When I asked them how long I would have to wait...NO ANSWER...AND AT LEAST 8 PEOPLE AHEAD OF ME. 3. If you don't treat your patients properly you will none left! I would NEVER wait "forever" in an office to see a doctor.. YOU OVERBOOKED!!! SHAME ON YOU

Dr. Amar is the best! The compassion and comfort that she has provided me with has helped make my recovery a lot less stressful. I am so thankful that my primary care physician recommended I see Dr. Amar. I am not just another patient, I AM HER PATIENT! Thank you for being an outstanding physician.
