About Dr. Amani

Philosophy of care

Burn injuries can be devastating. To provide excellent burn care, I address the patient's surgical, medical, physical and emotional needs. My focus is on form and function. It's my responsibility to help a patient heal so they can function to the best of their ability and have the best possible cosmetic outcome.

Why I entered medicine

Many members of my family were physicians. I saw the difference they made in people's lives. My dad was an ophthalmologist. He cared for people in a clinic at no charge. People who had cataracts arrived not being able to see and left with sight. That was incredible to me, and it taught me how great and rewarding the medical profession can be.

Community involvement

I provide education to ER physicians, firefighters and EMS personnel about how to treat burn. I tell them what to expect and what they should do should a burn injury occur in the field. I also teach first responders how to prevent burn injuries so they never need to come to our Regional Burn Center.

Personal interests

I do woodworking because I enjoy the challenge of making something out of nothing. I make furniture, cabinets and knickknacks. Closing the door of my wood shop and shutting out the world is therapeutic to me. I also enjoy cooking, painting and sewing.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
