She’s been my doctor since I was as 15 and is amazing! I won’t get a new doctor until she retires.


When she’s felt I’ve needed to be followed up sooner rather than later she’s had Yvette “work her magic”. They are a great team to the benefit of the patients.


She has been one of the best Dr's I have ever met , she listens and answers any questions we have she is amazing

She's an excellent doctor!


She truly cares for her patients, takes her time to explain any issues and is really friendly.


Doctor Aamodt is ver professional, knowledgeable and I have complete faith in her abilities to treat me.


I like her very much as a physician, but she is very popular and has supervisory responsibilities, so is very difficult to get an appointment with. I have not tried just doing phone calls or videos.
