excellent experience

Dr. Gennari is an outstanding physician and is a model for providing exceptional care. She is smart, knowledgeable, generous with her time, and kind.

Dr. Gennari is an excellent physician. She's thorough and detail oriented. Although I've only seen her a few times for routine, annual check-ups, I've been impressed with how prepared she is prior to my consultations. For as infrequently as she sees me, I wouldn't expect her to remember me; yet at every visit it is obvious she has reviewed my chart prior to entering the consultation room. She greets me warmly, takes a current history and only then gets on with the examination. She is clearly knowledgeable about the health issues common to seniors and has given me good advice for maintaining and improving my health. Furthermore, she asks good questions about health issues I should be paying attention to but wouldn't have thought to bring up myself. I have never felt rushed with her. She is respectful towards her patients and also towards the younger physicians and health care professionals who shadow her as part of their training. I noted how she patiently took time to point out and explain how to diagnose a couple of my physical problems to the younger P.A. she was mentoring. As a former teacher myself, I must compliment her on her natural teaching skills. She involves her students in the learning experience rather than having them stand off to the side and silently observe--a less effective teaching technique I've observed many other senior physicians use with the younger people they are mentoring. I have enormous confidence in Dr. Gennari and feel fortunate to have her as my primary care physician. I sent my husband to her after my first visit with her a few years ago. We both highly recommend her to anyone who wants a highly skilled, conscientious physician with a wonderful bedside manner.

Dr. Gennari is very attentive to my needs and concerns. As a busy physician, her patients have her highest priority.

My last visit with Dr.Gennari on 12/18/17 was very positive and extremely helpful.

Dr. Gennari always looks out for my best interests.

Wonderful and caring nurse. Dr. Gennari really cares, and is the best doctor I have ever had.

September 18, 2017

It is obvious by my response that I was very pleased with my recent visit with Dr. Amelia Gennari.

September 18, 2017

before I met with Dr. Gennari I was interviewed by a Resident male student. When she interned the room, before addressing me, the patient , she spent a lot of time quizzing him. She did a good exam for me, the patient,but spentmuch more time talking and suggesting things for him to notice. While I know it is important to train future Doctors, I felt that I was secondary to the whole visit. I should have had time alone with my doctor at the end of the visit! This person was a large and somewhat stumbling presence in my exam.

Dr. Gennari is WONDERFUL! Can she be cloned? All doctors should be like her.
