It has been a long time since I have been to the "female doctor" and anyone who knows me, knows I am not Dr friendly. I got a recommendation from a friend and called in Sept to make an appt. The earliest they had was the end of November. Great 2 months to stress and worry. On the fateful day I drove towards the office and within sight of my exit I blew a tire. Someone took my 4 way out of my car so I couldn't change my own tire. :-( Needless to say I missed the appt. Called to reschedule and the next appt available was today (GREAT another 2 months of dread). This morning I actually made it to the office. Trembling hands provided the paperwork and insurance information. After a brief wait I was escorted back for the scale of shame...lol, not as bad as I thought. The pre appt questioning and vitals went smoothly but I was still terrified. The staff was very nice and didn't laugh at me. As I waited in the room for the Dr. I was as nervous as the proverbial long tailed cat in a room full of rockers. The Dr. came in and actually sat down, talked with me, didn't laugh at me (and believe me I can ask some stupid stuff) and made me feel completely at ease. After our talk I changed into the cloth gown (thank God, no paper) and waited. She was kind, informatory and professional. If anyone is looking for a good Gyn in Amarillo I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Amanda Murdock. She and all her staff were just wonderful. I will let you know if she continues to exceed my expectations when she preforms a small procedure for me.
