I have never been so pleased with a physician's thoroughness and concern for my health. I highly recommend Dr. Amazega and I am so thankful that my PCP referred me to her. She is wonderful and exhibits outstanding compassion for her patients.

I live in the South Hills and when Dr. Amazega moved to Wexford I chose to follow her , because I felt she really listened to my symptoms and explained everything I needed to do and why. She is the best!!

October 20, 2015

Everyone was very nice and showed concerns for my care. The Doctor was excellent in providing care and listening to my concerns and the best way to help solve my issues. I love Dr. Amexaga and don't want to go to any other Doctor for care!

This was my initial visit with Dr Urruela. I was so impressed that In spite of my long history she was very aware of my issues and past lab results, treatments, etc. She was thorough, efficient and exact in her assessments. The injections she gave me were meticulously performed and right on target. I was prompted to call her office the next day and comment with gratitude about the results I had experienced already! It was a difficult decision for me to transfer to Dr Urruela's service as I had a long time relationship with my prior Rheumatologist but I can assure you I am delighted with my choice. I am confidant in her ability to diagnosis and treat and especially for her insight.

Dr. Amazega is extremely thorough. Not in the least bit lazy or quick. She genuinely cares about your health and makes sure that you understand all options available.

October 15, 2015

Excellent visit
