A lovely smart female doctor. I just had my first visit with Advanced Gastro. and with Dr. Amy Tilara. I found her to be lovely and very smart with an excellent bedside manner. She really listened to my complaints and put together a plan of action. I have total confidence that she will come up with a diagnosis and have already made some adjustments in my habits and feel 100% better already. Highly recommend her and her efficient office.
