Started trying to see Dr. Amundson in Sept. 10, 2016 and was made an apt on Oct.22, 2016. He did his "Neuro exam 101" that day and ordered an additional MRI on my brain and cervical spine. Those MRIs were done and sent to him. All the MRIs and Doctor visits and test went over three thousand...more

Worst experience with a doctor. Didn't want to listen when I tried to explain my pain and got an attitude when I tried to ask questions. Just because a doctor graduated from John Hopkins doesn't give him the right to treat patients they way he does.

This man is nothing but a JERK. My mother has been in constant pain in her back. Shy has cysts on her spine. She went and seen him and he treated her like she was dirt. Wouldn't listen to anything she had to say and told her to find a "happy" surgeon to do the surgery. It's taking everything in me...more
