Dr. Michael Amaro, MD

OB-GYN

Professional statement

PATIENTS, PLEASE FILL OUT INSURANCE INFO INCLUDING ID NUMBER WHEN BOOKING! In 1974, I received the most memorable award of my career. I had just graduated from High School and received a diploma that read "The University of Notre Dame proudly honors Michael Anthony Amaro as a Notre Dame Scholar in recognition of the outstanding academic and personal record that he has achieved in the exercise of his God-given talents. May he be granted continued success and brought to fullness of life." Since then I have been able to accomplish this as an Obstetrician/Gynecologist. The practice of Obstetrics and Gynecology is so rewarding because you get to practice women's Medicine and Surgery. One is able to see the joy of childbirth first hand and evaluate the psyche of the female, which is absolutely fascinating. You are able to witness families being born, grow and then develop. You watch as babies mature into little children, adolescents and then young adults. I will never forget the first time a patient came to me and told me that she wanted me to deliver her baby because I had been her mother's doctor when she was born. That was such an incredible feeling. I wish each of you could experience what I am able to experience each and every day. I have been granted an incredible gift that I would like to share with you. Please join me in a tour of my practice in Obstetrics and Gynecology.

The nurse practitioner was super sweet and you could tell she really cares about the patient. She informed me i was pregnant and assured me i would be okay. She also was very thorough & answered all questions i had. Very glad to have experienced a nurse like that.

We did not meet in an examination room, it was an office, where I sat in a chair in front of his desk, so there was no bedside manner. He just listened to my pain issue, wrote a prescription, and sentme out. He didn't ask for a follow-up, what it could be, nothing to find the issue at hand. this was in 2016, so maybe he changed.

Dr amaro is a wonderful dr, I he delivered my first baby. However the front desk staff was very unpleasant and also not informative. I also work for united healthcare so I'm used to dealing with providers daily. They have madethis visit extremely unpleasant to where I will never go again.

The first time I went I was seen by a registered nurse, who was amazing. Second time I was seen by Dr. Amaro himself, an experience I do not recommend. While he was doing my breast exam he was talking abouthow young and perky they looked and comparing them to the nurse's. I felt extremely uncomfortable.

Worst experience ever. The nurses and staff were nice but I'm assuming Dr Amaro makes to much money to feel like he has to greet, smile, or do anything to make his patients feel comfortable.

The office and staff are nice. Dr. Amaro is actually pretty cool, easy to talk to, very personable. My one and only complaint is the ridiculous wait time. My appt was at 330p but I wasn't called to the exam roomuntil after 430p. I left that office it was after 5p. I only had a check-up. Maybe it'll get better next visit...

This was my first time here and felt right at ease.The nurse who did my yearly check up was very nice. I never saw the doctor himself. I forgot her name(sorry) but she was very friendly. We spoke about our weighloss story. She was very easy to talk too. Answered all my questions and I left with my prescription for birth control. Exactly why I came in. I was recommend there by a patient of theirs,she is my neighbor. I'm a 28 years old.

I'm not happy with the service that they offered me. Doctor asked me to come back next day for the follow up. Nurse asked me to undress and waited about 20 minutes. Then nurse came to my room and told mewear back your clothes and see the doctor at his office. I don't understand why she had to ask me to undress at the beginning. Doctor just asked me how do I feel after a minor surgery. He didn't even check on me at all. He spoke to me within one minute and that's it. I feel like unprofessional and not respectful at all.

Receptionist does not give you a warm welcome since they keep the window close and even after knocking several times they take a while to open. Doctor Amaro is not professional at all, I understand that I look young but hisgreeting is not acceptable. He came into the room and said "What's up" spent less that 10 minutes with me. Visit was kind of awkward and uncomfortable.

My visit went well and the staff was EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT! Oh, did I mention that the staff was EXCELLENT? Dr. Amaro was interesting. He seems to be a man of few words and at the same time says everything. Hewasn't hurried so he didn't rush me. After Dr. Amaro examined me he told me to get dressed and meet him in his office and gave me directions to come from the examination room to him. Once I entered the office I felt so comfortable. He went over his findings along with the treatment and assured me that he would follow up with me if any of the tests came back with concerns. He then gave me the floor to discuss any concerns, etc. He's a bit of old school and new school blended perfectly. My visit today exceeded my expectations...and my expectations are always exceptionally high.

Although Dr. Amaro is a nice guy it comes a time where doctors need to just retire, I think. I had a LOT of concerns being pregnant for the first time and having complications from the beginning and I always feltlike he didnt take my concerns seriously and I ended up having preeclampsia. My child and I could have died despite ALL the times I showed him my concern about it throughout my pregnancy. I had high blood pressure and bad swelling from about 16 weeks and they not once tested me for pre e. In my opinion they were very negligent in my particular case. His nurse practitioner was also very passive and didn't take me seriously. He also did my sons circumcision and performed an "incomplete" circumcision and now my baby has to be put to sleep to have it fixed. I am a good person and I really don't like to leave bad reviews but I think this may save someone from negligence. I look at reviews before I go to ANY doctor and he had good reviews but I'm sad to say that he is not that great, AT ALL. Sorry Dr. Amaro, your a sweet guy but maybe it's time to hang up the stethoscope ;)

Dr. Amaro is a great OBGYN!!! I never missed well womens exams when he was my healthcare provider because I actually looked forward to going to my visits with him. I am saddened to learn that he no longer accepts UnitedHealthcare Community Plan. Dr.Amaro, you will be greatly missed. For those of you searching for a great OBGYN, look no further, you have found him!!! He cares about his patients and it shows.I recommend him to anyone without hesitation.
