Unlike the Doctor I went to at another hospital/practice, Dr. Amin took his time during the appointment, asked questions, and I will say was genuinely interested in my answers and concerns. He did a thorough exam, and at the end, I felt he provided an excellent evaluation.

Dr. Amin is one of the best doctors I've ever encountered. This round was my second with him. I came to him out of hopelessness. He diagnosed the condition right away and prescribed an ointment. 20 minutes after I applied it, most of the skin condition was gone. It was miraculous. It wasn't just what he did; it was how he did it. He has a great bedside manner. He's terrific and I remain delighted and gratefull to be his patient. And no, he did not pay me to say these things and, no, I am not his mom.
