Specialties

Dr. Ramesh Amara has the following 2 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Hospitalist

    Hospitalists are physicians who specialize in the care of patients in the hospital. The majority of hospitalists are board-certified internists and have completed the same training as other internal medicine doctors including medical school, residency and board certification examination.
    Hospitalist activities include patient care, teaching, research, and leadership related to hospital care. They have more expertise in caring for complicated hospitalized patients on a daily basis since, unlike other specialists or primary care doctors, they spend most of their day in the hospital.
    They often coordinate the care of their patients and act as the central point of communication among the different doctors and nurses involved in the patient's care. They are also the main physician for family members to contact for updates on a loved one.

First Meeting Not So Great!

Terrible bed side manner! When he was asking pertinent questions about my medical history, he sounded so accusatory in the way he spoke and phrased his questions and kept making facial gestures, sometimes frowning when it appeared he did not like the answer. It was very uncomfortable!

Questionable billing practices

The doctor's service was fine but the office manager and billing function is the worst that I ever encountered. They had billing questions that I had issues on and they will not return my calls or emails. Meanwhile, they turn me over to collections. I paid the bill in full for the balance due. They then bill me 10 monthes later for lab services that the insurance company had paid them for previously. They wanted me to pay them over $250 in "balance billing". They billed me the difference the amount of the difference between what the negotiated rate that the insurance company pays and what they charge. This practice is not legal in Texas. It took a 47 minute phone call to resolve. The other billing issues cost me hours of my time. It is too much work to straighten out their billing issues to ever go there again. A nice doctor but the Centenial & Texas Health Physician Group staff made this a very time consuming process.

BAD STAFF!

DR Amara seemed nice enough, but the real problem is the staff at Centennial Medical Associates. They over book the doctors. What is worse is that they incorrectly file insurance claims which results in the patient being forced to pay the bill when the insurance should. The insurance companies aren't to blame. The staff and their inability to correctly file claims is a very serious problem at Centennial Medical Associates.
