Dr. Amitina is very nice, patient and knowledgeable. But I had to wait more than 2 hours to be seen. The schedule has to be managed more efficiently considering patient conditions

Dr. Amitina examined me thoroughly and asked many questions about my symptoms. She is sending me to physical therapy asap I will have further testing done next week. She put my mind at ease that it wasn't stroke symptoms I've beenhaving. My hand & arm are numb and it was frightening.

I had an appointment with Dr. Amitina for issues with my right shoulder and left knee. She suggested a shot of a small amount of Lidocaine, without steroids. My shoulder problem disappeared after the first treatment, and my knee problem afterthe second. Thank you so much, I would recommend this doctor to anyone.

I had ulnar neuropathy in my left arm where I had constant numbness for over 6 months and had visited a different neurologist and physical therapist. I was referred out to a hand surgeon by my neurologist, but I wanted toget another opinion. After a few months of injections with lidocaine to specific points on my arm without steroids or any other medications with Dr. Yelena, I had noticeable recovery in my condition and significant reduction of my numbness. I was glad I was able to avoid surgery with the help of her treatment. She is very kind and answers all of my questions, the best professionalism I have seen out of any kind of doctor I had!

Wow! Probably the most personable and caring doctor I've ever met. She is a great example of what a doctor should be like. Not only does she knows her stuff, she really want's to help. I needed to do a nerveconducting test, and she even held my hand to support me (I am very sensitive). The office was quite outdated and dirty though, her technical assistant couldn't wait to leave and kept complaining, and her medical assistant didn't know how to spell pistachios or what they even were, which is pretty sad. But all that doesn't matter because the doctor is THAT good!

I’ve been seeing Dr. Amitina every once in a while. She is the best doctor I’ve seen in my life. She not only takes time to listen to your complaints, she takes it beyond your obvious symptoms looking deep into thewhole state of your body and mind, thoroughly reviewing medical history of all your problems, even not related to her specialty. Those who want just to get a quick prescription shouldn’t bother to go to see her – she spends a lot of time with every patient she sees. If she prescribes you something you can be sure this is what you really need, not just a way to get off your issues quickly. Her recommendations changed my lifestyle and led to much healthier life and well-being. I’d give her ten stars if it was allowed.

Dr. Amitina was great - she took a very thorough history and considered all my medical problems holistically - not just the migraines. It did take a while to see her, but she was clearly spending time with another patient, andwhen it was my turn, I obviously appreciated her attention and thoroughness.

I'm fifty years old, and in all my life, I have never experienced this level of professionalism and care from any doctor! Dr. Amitina is extremely thorough in her examination, and delightfully courteous. The clinic staff were equally professional and courteous. I am looking forward to my follow up visit.

I thought it was one of the best doctors visit I have ever had! Not only was I given a last minute appointment, but she gave me a very thorough check up and consultation. She listened and took her time! Ihave been searching for a doctor just like her and now I can finally say I found her. I would recommend her highly for taking action right away - I am scheduled for my first round tests today - only one day later! Thank you!

Dr. Amitina is a very caring doctor. I came to her with a lot of blood work and she looked through it all and she found a vitamin d deficiency my internal medicine doctor missed. She is very throrough and looksat the patient as a whole. She even suggested some useful supplements to take! She also helped me with my migraine headaches and neck pain that couldn't be fixed after months of physical therapy.
