I was referred to Dr. Amari by a friend after a previous caregiver referred me to a different rheumatologist who could not get me in for 4 months. The staff was friendly and responsive to calls when setting up the appointment and upon arrival. Dr. Amari was knowledgeable and reassuring, which was a contrast to the doctor\'s office who referred me to rheumatology. She listened to me and addressed my concerns, and she followed up with me quickly when my lab results were available. I\'d highly recommend her!
