What People Say About Dr. Marvin Ament, MD
Reply
I took my son to see Dr. Ament to try to determine if he has celiacs. After testing my son for other things we got conflicting information from Dr. Ament. One visit he told us just to not worry about anything, then the next visit he strongly recommended an endoscopy and gave me incorrect test results? I'm terrified that he's giving incorrect care to other children.
