    I have a master's degree in Women's Health Care in Nursing and my husband is an OBGYN and we had, we received incredible care by Dr. Paula Amato. She listened. She gave us the current data. She was amazing. I would refer her to anyone, all my friends. Thanks.

    Dr. Amato is wonderful. I was just about to start IVF when I found out I got pregnant naturally. She still did an ultrasound to check the baby before moving me to a high risk dr. Always available for questions.

    I was provided information about some of my hormone levels that represented me myself having a low egg count, or poor quality eggs. The way that it was I guess provided to me was not very supportive and I got super emotional about it because I didn't know that that was something that was going on with myself and so I didn't feel like he provided any kind of emotional support or delivery of that kind of message in a way that wouldn't be so hurtful. So I thought that ... I think that she could use some you know, some help in that department terms of delivery of messages to her audience, which in this case is a patient who's having difficulty conceiving, so that's the feedback I have for Dr. Amato.
