Dr. Amanquah is quite possibly the best pediatrician in NYC! She's efficient, quick, and thorough. I had a list of concerns about my two boys and my unborn babyboy and she addressed them all with ease. I left the office feelingmuch better than when I arrived. I thank Zocdoc everyday for making access to these great doctors so easy.

Lovely, lovely doctor. I decided to go to her as an emergency after having a bad experience with a different doctor. My experience with Dr. Amanquah was the polar opposite of the previous one and I'm even considering switching over to her as my son's official pediatrician. She's awesome.
