Awful!! Rude,condescending, unethical, judgemental, no bedside manner. Office was filthy. Tracie Bethea
Charlotte NC |
Dr sets appointments up starting at 8:00 yet has staff meeting every day until 845 so you sit for hours waiting He is very condescending .Don't really see how anyone can leave a good review unless he just makes up names and reviews what he thinks of himself .Do yourself a favor stay clear of this nut

Horrible doctor!!! do not bother to see him. He does not like to listen and i felt very rushed. He can also be condescending which made me wonder why is he a doctor if he doesn't have sympathy for his patients. Only good thing about his practice is his staff. He has a very friendly staff, he should take some tips from them and learn how to treat patients.

As a new patient you try to explain your pain concerns over two years at this location he doesn't listen orders tests treatment that I have other doctor's for will not work with other doctor's provide injections if you tell him something isn't working he doesn't listen he wants to continue to provide treatment that you just informed him doesn't work this was my experience with Doctor Amara I am no longer a patient at Amara Pain Spine.

The worst environment i've even been in. This office is extremely nasty. The one and only bathroom should be a health department violation. Amara is rude, arrogant, and judgemental of everyone of his patients. You can hear most interviews from the waiting room. I cannot and would not recommend him to anyone ever!
in Charlotte, NC |
My family cannot recommend. We want a professional office. We have seen more than one client wait more than a over an hour to be seen with an appointment time? We have seen clients walk out without being seen or argue with the office staff. The website pictures are stock photographs and there is only one doctor, not plural. My family member just wants her pain medicine . . . it is sad.

This is unprofessional for patients experiencing TRUE pain.he only writes pain meds WITH tylenol. Makes you weigh yourself and then youre lucky if he spends 5 mins with you. Dont go sick or they treat you like your an animal scheduling time is great but dr isnt so great. Hes made sexual comments to patients as well. Highly advise you seek another dr.
in Charlotte, NC |
Dr. Amara was very serious about my condition and gave me a thorough examination. For the first time a doctor tried to find where the pain was coming from and give me concrete solutions right there in the office. Dr. Amara has found a way to relieve the pain I have from my neck/back/shoulder injury despite the fact that the injury is chronic now. Going from having pain 24/7 for over a year to being virtually pain-free and able to work and enjoy life again is hard to describe. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
in Charlotte, NC |
Dr Amara has been treating me for over a year and i highly recommend him for pain management. He has helped my current status and has made me consider the future and not use all my choices up at once. He is always considering the next step. He is in a difficult climate with the new rules for opioids. He is a caring Doc without being a pill pusher.
Charlotte, nc |
Very judgmental, rude would not recommend anyone visit this office, however the office staff is very friendly, can't understand how they work with him, does not like to talk to you about the medications he prescribes you, will write the script and tell you talk with the pharmacist about medications that he is giving you.
