I visited Dr Amarnath when I was very sick and definitely not at my best. She was not warm and I felt treated disrespectfully. I think that she was frustrated that she could not figure out how to help me but it felt as if she was taking out this frustration on me. I felt blamed for my illness. When I left the first appointment she stated "come back to see me in 4-6 weeks" so upon leaving I made an appointment at the front desk. When I returned for the follow up visit when she entered the room instead of a greeting the first thing that she said was "why are YOU BACK?" This was over 5 years ago. She was quite young and seemed to be lacking in the empathy and gained wisdom of more experienced doctors. I leave this review not to discredit Dr Amarnath but in the hopes that there is accountability because, for a patient,a negative experience like this affects trust. Good medicine is built upon trust between patient and provider.

She was thorough and took time to explain. She appeared to be very concerned about my numbers. I like how she communicates through email. I'm not close and that is convenient for me. I don't know about the other Drs in this practice, but I really like Dr Amernath!
