Great Experience giving birth with Dr Amara and Sonoma Valley Hospital

I had the best experience of my life going through my pregnancy with Dr Amara and having my baby at Sonoma Hospital. Dr Amara is kind, professional, available and personal. He takes the time to make you feel reassured and comfortable. It is always easy to schedule an appointment, the staff at the office is nice and it feels very familiar to go back there. My birth experience was great. Dr Amara was calm and caring and professional. The nurses were so nice and the hospital room was very comfortable. All the other moms I talked to who had Dr Amara as a doctor and gave birth at Sonoma Hospital were as happy, satisfied and grateful as I am.

High inutero death rate

Many woman has lost their unborn child under Dr. Amara's care. My daughter lost 2. one at 3 and a half mos. along. A year later a son at 5 and a half months-she ended up driving herself out of Sonoma after being examined the night before and the good Dr. told her to go home, she wasn"t losing the baby. After passing more blood & clots throughout the night she went to Queen of the Valley Hosp. in Napa. The doctor who examined her told her she was infact losing the baby and that this could have been prevented. The doctor also said he was having a heck of a time getting my daughters medical records from Amara. Her baby boy was born dead that night. My daughter kept the Napa OBGGYN as her doctor & gave birth to a full term healthy baby boy 2 and a half yrs. later. Her doctor told her throughout her pregnancy that he was getting more & more new patients that were old patients of Dr. Amara. I have numerous friends who lost their grandchildren while their daughters were pregnant under his care, and a friend who lost his wife & child during child birth because of Dr. Amaras negligence. It just so happens he is the only OB in the town of Sonoma.

Dr. Amara is great. But his staff is some of the worst ever. They don't follow up on requests (for transcripts, other requests), don't call you back when they say they will, and are constantly over billing/over charging. This is based on several incidences, over a few years not just one.

just a working woman-Bookkeeper

I was hospitalized for one issue and my OBGYN problem was then discovered.The attending Doc called Doc Amara in on a Sunday evening to look at test results and to consult with me. He was very nice,had a gentle bedside manner and left me with hope towards a quick resolution to my medical issue. He did the surgery the following week,the Hosp staff at Sonoma Valley Hosp were great and I am on the mend. And very thankful to a competant and kind Doc Amara.
