"The best part of my day is seeing the "light bulb" moment when a girl starts to really understand her health and grasp why she has been experiencing the symptoms she has been having. Seeing her make educated choices about caring for her health is its own reward. I believe that for girls and their families to make educated decisions and optimally manage their health, they need to understand why an illness is occurring as well as the benefits and risks of available treatment options. I believe that the best doctor-patient relationship focuses on the values of good communication, respect and honesty."

      I feel so fortunate to have my daughter cared for by Dr. Amies. She, along with a team of doctors, performed a delicate surgery on my daughter. What could be a very complicated procedure, became easier for me to understand because of Dr. Amies' way of talking with me and my daughter. I am confident in Dr. Amies' knowledge and care and would recommend her 100%. Thank you Dr. Amies!

      Dr. Amies recently operated on my daughter for a complicated uterine/vaginal defect. Not only was she extremely kind, open, patient, and understanding, she was very good to/with my daughter. She held her hand in the OR and offered to sing her to sleep. It takes a truly special person to treat their patients with such kindness and compassion. Thank you, Dr. Amies!!!

      We were extremely lucky to have our paths cross with this great doctor. She was great at explaining all that was going on in a way that we could ALL easily understand. Her demeanor is very friendly which made it great for our daughter yet she provided us with research and critical information that my "engineer-data-oriented" husband could be comfortable with. At every appointment, she was always prepared and was up to date with our child's history giving us the confidence that she had done her homework. We really appreciate a Doctor that is truly competent but can deliver a very human and friendly bed-side manner to the mix. She was wonderful with my sick daughter, her very concerned twin sister and her parents! I highly recommend her.
