    Dr Amamilo has been transparent from Day One when I saw him at the BMI Hospital in Stepney Green. He explained the methods of examination from start to finish and suggested various treatments. The suggested treatment helped me recover from my symptoms and I would come back to see Dr Amamilo if I had another issue.
