Most Caring and Forthright Doctor I've Ever Encountered

He was my physician over 30 years ago. To this day, I've never met a more compassionate, caring or talented physician that Dr. Amsterdam. He is not only technically competent, he is also one of the more ethical physicians I've encountered in my 49 years, with the highest standard of professionalism of anyone I have ever met. I have never forgotten my experience with him, and know that I will never encounter one like him again. He is the gold standard.
