I was shocked and saddened to read the news of Amy's passing tonight, October 11, 2020. I had no idea. Amy treated my son for many years, for ADHD. She was such an excellent doctor. She was so careful, and thorough. She spent time, getting to know him, and us, and his strengths. She was so gracious with her time. We were especially grateful for how careful she was with prescribing medicine. She checked everything so carefully, and that helped her to make wise decisions for her patients. I was looking for her # to give to someone, and was saddened to learn that she had passed. I send my deepest condolences to her family. She was a loving person, and a compassionate professional. She helped our family immensely. My deepest sympathies to all who knew and loved her.

He is now 33 years old. She not only treated him, but we as a family became close. Our hearts and prayers go out to the Rowan and Sloate families.
