Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Amory "I treat each person as a unique individual. I get to know that person and listen to the medical issue(s) that led him/her to see me. I spend time in conversation and examination to gather the information necessary for a diagnosis and treatment. I discuss the management options so that we can jointly select the appropriate treatment. Every question is welcomed. I enjoy learning about each person and sharing the benefit of my expertise. I hold sacred the trust placed in my care."

Dr. Amory performed my laparoscopic cholecystectomy in 2010. I was completely satisfied and impressed with my care. Naturally, when my spouse needed triple hernia surgery we sought his opinion. There are no words to convey Dr. Amory's skill and compassion. I am a nurse and my husband a physician (both retired). Dr. Amory is a rare bird and I am grateful for his care and attention.

Dr. Spencer removed my gall bladder years ago. You can read so much about issues with diet after gall bladder surgery but I've had none and my G.P., looking for the "scars" after the surgery (very hard to locate) said she'd never seen such fine work.
