in Ipswich, MA |
I was impressed with Dr. Amato. He was charming, polite and answered any and all questions I had. He spoke in understandable terms. He could have ordered more tests and didn't because they would not have impacted anything I was doing. I would highly recommend him.
in Attleboro, MA |
Came to see Dr Amato for possible diagnosis of ALS. He spent maybe 5 minutes with us and never introduced himself. Made us feel like he had better things to do and left all the testing with a students. At the end of the visit we were forced to walk into a dark hallway with no direction. The person at the desk did not even know how to make an appointment for us. After waiting we were told someone would call us. NEVER HEARD BACK!!!
in Boston, MA |
terrible experience and a waste of time and money. He didn't listen, talked right over me, and had no empathy or interest in how symptoms effect daily living/goals/ambitions. There are great physicians in Boston, don't waste your time here. I'm not a difficult patient and simply wanted a consult on progressing symptoms. I was practice for his students and then saw him for maybe 5 minutes. He couldn't leave fast enough.
