I don't trust him

Saw Dr. Ambrozic for a consult on Wharton's Jelly therapy. The session began 45 mins after my appointment time. He was in and out of the room in just 10-15 minutes, flippant with my concerns, and said some things that made me wary: 1. That the procedure was "100% risk free." NO MEDICAL PROCEDURE IS 100% RISK FREE. So the alarm bells were going off. 2. I told him I had consulted with Mayo Clinic about stem cells and Wharton's Jelly and Mayo's Regenerative Medicine Dept told me that I should be cautious, as stem cells that have not been modified to produce SPECIFIC cells could replicate damaged or harmful cells. His response? "Well, I don't know who you talked to, but they were wrong." 3. He said - without having my medical records or anything - that he'd immediately start me off at a double dose. A double dose when you haven't even seen how I would respond to a single dose??? 4. Lastly, he claimed he had treated other patients - with great success! - who had my same illness. I asked if he would please contact those patients and ask if they'd be willing to speak to me. He assured me he would, but I never heard from any of those patients. I did hear from a general neuropathy patient, who said his treatment was successful, but that patient also told me the price he paid for his services, and there seems to be some WIDE discrepancies in who pays what and how dosages are assigned (see #3) above. All in all, there are just too many red flags here. 2 stars bc the office staff I spoke with on the phone was very pleasant. Otherwise I'd have gone with 1 star.

Thermal ablation

I do not recommended this Dr.!!!!! I had a thermal ablation done and now I have nothing but poor venous blood flow and narrowing of my veins! Since going to another Dr. I have had to have 4 stents and still may have to have more. I wish I would have never stepped foot in Dr. Ambrozic's office!!!!!

Pro-Lipo, Skin-tightening, Mole Removal, and Tattoo Removal

Dr. Ambrozic epitomizes the kind of doctor that others need to take a lesson or two from. From the moment I met him, his right hand woman, Kathleen, and all of the rest of his staff, I felt as though I was not just a patient, I was part of a huge family; I never feel like I am going to the doctor's office, it always feels as though I am visiting friends. Ambrozic's bedside manner is one that I haven't experienced in years...regardless of what I am going to see him for, he always makes me feel as though I am important and he places my needs and my concerns first, above anything else. After having two children, I decided that I wanted to do something for myself, and I chose to have the Pro-Lipo done...and my results, from the procedure last year, are wonderful!! He listened to my insecurities and put me at ease not just with his bedside manner, but with facts and as much information for me to review, as I wanted, so that I could make an informed decision. Not once has he ever made me feel that he was in it for the money; if that was the case, my random messages and phone calls about the procedure (before and after I had it) would have been ignored. After the procedure, I was given his cell phone number so that I could reach him at any time, for any reason...I've never had a doctor care so much. I was so pleased with this procedure and my experience as a whole, I have recommended (and continually recommend) all of my friends (both female and male) to him instead of having abdominoplasty done by one of the plastic surgeons in this town. Another thing I love is that if the procedure won't work for someone, he will tell them, and that is just another small example of how he truly cares about his patients...even if he ends up recommending them to another doctor. All of my friends have been more than satisfied with his work, even the ones the procedure would not work on, because he was honest and told them the truth and pointed them in a direction that would work. A couple of months ago, I had to have some moles removed because they were changing color and becoming a concern to me. Instead of having my own PCM treat me, I chose to have Dr. Ambrozic remove them because I knew that he would really care about me, the procedure, the results, and how I felt about the entire process. Once again, I was given a substantial amount of information about the process, what to expect, potential results from the biopsy, and every question I had and didn't have, was answered thoroughly. And I received phone calls throughout the week, after I had them removed, checking in to make sure I was healing correctly. This morning, I had my first tattoo removal session. I have heard many stories about the pain involved in getting a tattoo removed...that it hurts worse than the tattoo itself. While I cannot speak for the pain tolerance levels of everyone else, I can say that Dr. Ambrozic's staff made sure that I would be as comfortable as possible during the procedure. My questions were answered and I was put thoroughly at ease before we began. Once my session was over, his technician (Rachel) answered all the questions I forgot to ask before!! While it didn't feel great, once again, I left the doctor's office, without feeling as though I had a medical procedure done. And that says a lot, in my book!! I would (and I always do) recommend Dr. Ambrozic to everyone that can benefit from his practice and wide range of services. He is a wonderful doctor and his staff is beyond amazing!!! Dr. Ambrozic has proven to me, time and time again, that he is only concerned about his patients, their needs, and their desires.
