The office sent me a letter saying I did not answer my phone. That is not true. I immediately went to the office to see what the problem was. A ultra sound that was 6 weeks old identified cancer and no one from the office called to inform me. On the report the doctor reading the ultra sound talked to Dr. Ampelas that day. The MA came and talked to me, not Dr. Ampelas. When I did talk to Dr. Ampelas two weeks later, he told me to take my husband and put him in Hospice, that he had six months to live. Well, it is 2.5 years later and he just died.
I finally found a doctor!

I had been hunting for a doctor to be my primary care doc and hadn't had any luck. I just didn't feel like I mattered to any of the doctors I visited. Dr. Ampelas treated me like an individual with individual needs and issues and answered any and all questions I had. He spent as much time with me as I needed and never made me feel like I was keeping him from something. I feel he is thorough and proficient. He is our official family doctor now.
