I find Dr. Amos' candidness refreshing, not just concerning my skin, but also regarding other topics. I'd sit down and have a beer with him.

The entire office put me at ease during my appointment. Dr. has my trust so far. Treatment seemed a little rushed. Dr. didn't provide a lot of explanation regarding skin condition. I probably should have asked a few more questions.
