Amazing Dr...knows what he is doing
Self-verified patient of Dr. Rene A Amaya - Posted on April 21st, 2018
My son was involved in an accident and got stuck between a bed and a treadmill when his cousin turned it on. He was stuck for roughly 2 minutes and couldn’t get out. Our pediatrician referred us immediately to Dr. Amaya. He looked at the wounds and after trying to treat the less severe wound in the office he realized how traumatic the experience was for my son and immediately stopped and suggested we go into the hospital. He was awesome and did the debridement three times. My son is healed!
