Five Stars

I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Amble and his entire staff. Every staff member I ever spoke to or worked with had an excellent demeanor and bedside manner. Dr. Amble was very upfront with me regarding expectations, something I appreciated and respected, and I found him to be sincere and quite likable. I would recommend his office to anyone in need of sinus and/or rhinoplasty surgery. Jeff P.

I took my daughter to Dr. Amble for her sinus drainage issues. The nurse who talked with us before we saw the doctor was amazing and probably more helpful than the doctor himself. When Dr. Amble finally came into the office to see us, he was abrupt and arrogant and not interested in answering any of my questions. He did an approximately 15-30 second exam of each nostril with a scope after spraying some numbing medication up her nose. He prescribed some nasal spray and a CAT scan to be done off-site. We had a follow-up visit with him about 2 weeks later where did the same scope exam but for an even shorter time and without the numbing medication. He said that the CAT scan showed a blockage of some kind but he wouldn't know what that blockage was until he did surgery. We weren't interested in that option so we did not see him again. When I received the bill, each of those scope exams was charged at $600 each and I was not told there would be an additional charge. I assumed his exam would include looking in her nose!! I wrote a letter with my first payment and told them that I thought the exam charge was excessive and that I had no prior knowledge of the charge amount. I requested that the bill be reduced but I heard nothing back from them except additional bills each month. After paying for 9 consecutive months, I again sent a letter asking that my bill to be settled in full. I got no response so I called the office. I talked with a gal who said she would put my request before the administrator and call me back in about 1 week. I didn't receive a call back in 3 weeks, so I called again. The same gal gave me the same explanation and assured me she would call back in 1 week. She did not. I then sent a letter with my payment and said that the payment would be my last one until I heard back from them regarding the reduction of my bill. I requested that they take my final payment as settlement in full but that I would be sending no further payments until I heard from them. The gal from the office called me the same day she received that letter and said that the administrator had decided to accept that payment as settlement in full. So, I'm out nearly $1,000 and have no answers except that something is blocking my daughter's nose and causing sinus drainage which we knew before we even made the first appointment.
