My experience with Dr. Amar and her staff was exceptional. Her team is very professional and courteous, and Dr. Amar is the same. What I appreciated most about her was that she listened to me and then came up with theleast invasive plan to treat my illness. She thinks and practices regarding long-term preventative care. It's refreshing to have a doctor that is honest and concerned with your long-term results. I would recommend her and her staff whole-heartedly.

The wait was around 30 min but it was a busy office. Also, if you are in a rush, then you shouldn't have booked a doctor's appointment in the first place. Anyway, Dr. Amar was super speedy, incredibly personable, and thorough.I felt taken care of and I really appreciate her for it.

I was thoroughly impressed with Dr. Amar and her office, I have been in pain with my right foot for about 2 weeks and my daughter had enough. I was able to see her same day, which was a God sent.Her staff is super helpful and Dr. Amar is very pleasant, always a smile on her face. If I have another foot pain/problem, I would definitely go back to her in a heartbeat.

The wait time this visit was slightly longer than usual, but this may have been due to the fact that I had the latest appointment. However, do not let any potential wait time deter you. For the most part, the waitis usually no more than 10 minutes (very reasonable), and the service is worth even the longest wait. Dr. Amar is both professional and knowledgeable. She will take the time to explain what is wrong and to offer different solutions. Moreover, she will always try to make any procedure as painless as possible. Dr. Amar always remembers me and asks me how I am doing, and even remembers little details. It truly makes a world of a difference when a doctor greets you with warmth and personal care. I would not go to any other doctor- it is very rare that you come upon a doctor who provides such a positive experience.

Dr. Amar is simply fantastic. She is genuinely concerned for her patients, highly personable, and extremely knowledgeable. It's rare to find doctors of her caliber. Everything she has advised for my plantar fasciitis and subsequent sprainedankle (a secondary injury) has helped relieve the pain. Both times I've seen her, she's been extremely empathetic about my love for exercise (specifically cardio, which is temporarily off limits), and took time to explain which workouts and activities I can do safely. In short, she's ensured that I heal without going mad from lack of activity. Yes, the wait time was long, but I overheard her instructing the receptionist about how to avoid this in the future. That said, she's got a television and magazines, which kept me entertained while I waited.

Dr Amar was great, however the staff needs to be a bit more professional. They didn't talk to me inappropriately, however their side conversations were inappropriate. Patients are not interested in knowing who you like/don't like in the office.

I highly recommend Dr. Amar. She was very informative and compassionate. She also took into account the different options to approach on a budget. I did have to wait over an hour to be seen, which of course was no fun.My only complaint was that I wish they would have called me before I arrived to inform me that Dr. Amar was called into surgery, giving me an option to reschedule. Either way, I was very happy with the overall service I received.
