Patient Testimonials

"I cannot say enough about the kindness, concern and warmth [Dr. Amar] showed me. His entire office staff is like family to me. I worked extra hard at getting better just knowing they were all rooting for me. Sherry is my Champion; she means the world to me. She went to mass each morning and said a prayer for me. I was, and still am, deeply touched that another human being, who didn't know me until the day she had to schedule a series of appointments for me, could exhibit such compassion towards me...I feel compelled to commend Holy Cross Hospital as well as the group for the pleasant spaces and the nice ambiance provided at the main hospital and in the individual offices. When a person is sick and has to undergo treatment, it helps to be in a nice...environment coupled with a warm and friendly staff...I hold Holy Cross Hospital, its doctors and professionals in the highest regard."

"I have nothing but glowing and positive comments regarding the care that I received from Holy Cross. To me, there is no other facility that I would entrust my life with! From the day that I first met Dr. Patrick Amar and his caring, supportive staff...I knew that I was where I should be...I know it sounds crazy now, but even when I was hearing the awful diagnosis, I was very comforted by Dr. Amar's reassuring and kind words. I returned...to meet with Sherry Saunders [Holy Cross Medical Group Office Manager], my guardian angel (who prayed for me and sent me cards every week!), who outlined the next course of action...I feel very blessed to have had the level of care that Holy Cross afforded me. I feel that I have made life long relationships with...Dr. Amar and [his] wonderful staff. I know that I would not be here today if it were not for them. I am so thankful to all of them."
