Dr Amin is so approachable, knowledgeable and open minded. He relates so well to our daughter and makes sure to include her and make her an agent of her own well being. Auto immune disorders are so tricky and he looks at the entire picture and offers many additional approaches to achieve best health. He thoroughly answers any questions, no matter how strange or silly! We feel very lucky to have found him.
