I saw Dr. Gallagher for chronic back pain and Dr. Amis for pain and numbing in my hand. Both times, I was referred by other orthopedists I’d visited and trusted. I was thrilled to have seen both of these exceptional professionals.
Dr. Gallagher was thorough about my diagnosis. He never pushed surgery, however, told me honestly that there was nothing he could do for me. He has the perfect personality for a surgeon. He asked countless questions and made a concerted effort to arrive at his diagnosis.
Likewise, Dr. Amis spoke with me in a very relaxed manner and asked many questions. It was obvious that, in my situation, he prefers non-invasive outcomes if surgery is absolutely not necessary.
Just to be sure, he has recommended another colleague for further diagnostics and care. He provided me with a comfortable brace and has asked to see me in a month. He will consider the upcoming tests that his colleague will perform to make further recommendations for my care.
On the two occasions that I visited the facility I found the staff to be friendly and welcoming. They did all they could to make me feel comfortable and relaxed. I wasn’t made to feel like a person on a conveyor belt being rushed through the office.
Because of doctors like these, we can be assured we have trusted our health to capable hands.
Great experience overall.
Setting appointment was made easy with a helpful and friendly front desk staff. My wait time was about 5 mins which was awesome since I usually calculate wait time to see a doctor between 1/2 hr to 1hr. This tells me that the scheduling system in place is done well.
Also there was little to no paperwork to be filled out before seeing
Dr Ben Amis. Ashley (the doctors assistant/nurse) was very friendly and thorough in getting all the answers she needed about my pain, medications, history etc and made her own notes prior to Dr examination. Dr Amis presented himself with a lovely smile (always nice since Dr visits are not usually fun ), very approachable personality, very thorough examining my shoulder and wrist problem, explained exactly what was going on and used a dummy model of the muscle and tendons to make me fully understand and see what was causing my pain.
We all know that doctors are very busy and have multiple patients in different examining rooms waiting to be attended and most of the time I sense the feeling of being rushed but I must say this was not the case at all with Dr Amis. He was responsive to all my questions and gave me the time needed without feeling rushed.
Dr Amis will definitely be my ‘TO GO DOCTOR’ for any future orthopedic needs…Hopefully not anytime soon though ? sorry Doc!!
