Dr. Is the BEST
Forefront Dermatology
Dr. Amos was very patient explaining my condition. He told me step by step what would happen. He made me feel at ease with the procedure. His nurse was also very helpful explaining my after care for the procedure. I would highly recommend Dr. Amos. I am the 4th person in my family who has been his patient.

The office was quite busy on the day of my appointment, and as such I expected to be rushed when I met with the doc. That was not the case at all, and Dr. Amos gave me all the time I needed. He explained my options with patience and understood my nervousness and concerns. My husband has been seeing this doctor for quite awhile now, and I am a fairly new patient. I am staying with Dr. Amos!
