I absolutely love my appts. with Dr. Amezega. She listens and shares and asks questions. She is very down to earth and explains things on a lay person's level - not a doctor's. I actually was on my way out of the office and remembered I another important question. She took me back into an examine room and we had another discussion. Can't ask for more that that!!!

Dr. A always comes into the appointment with notes that she want to go over with me. She is the only Dr. I've ever had that is this prepared. She knew results of my blood work from August that I didn't know! Definitely, 1 of your best!!!
