July 30, 2015

doctor was very caring and took time to explain everything to me. I let family and friends know if they need a doc in her field of practice go to her.

July 27, 2015

She was so informative with my husband and I. I was very concerned with my health and she was able to give me hope and helped me feel better immediately.

July 15, 2015

first time meeting Dr. A She seemed courteous and interested in my understanding of my condition.

July 14, 2015

The doctor spent a lot of time explaining my test results to me. She went out of her way to be sure I understood everything she was discussing with me.

July 08, 2015

This was my first time seeing this doctor. I was very happy with my experience. She ordered blood work and xrays that I haven't gotten done yet so I guessed on that answer. We did discuss some of my medications but not all of them. And no one has ever discussed all of them with me. She was very caring and had a plan of action in mind. She was prepared for my visit and not just reading my chart as she walked in.

July 01, 2015

The entire staff was wonderful. Dr. A was great. She was very knowledgeable about my concerns and treatment as well as thorough on every aspect of my care. She is the best rheumatologist I have seen since I was first treated at children's hospital. Best doctor I have seen in the last 9 years for sure!!!

June 24, 2015

Dr Amezaga is the 5th rheumatologist I've seen in 20 years. She is the most knowledgeable, helpful and professional Dr I've ever been to, specialist or general. She is always on time, answers my questions, listens to me and is very proactive. I may be moving back to Ohio this summer, but I will make the drive to see her, and if my new insurance won't pay her, I will pay out of my pocket.
