I have been a severe migraine sufferer with over 15 migraines a month for several decades. Needless to say, I have been many places and tried many things seeking relief. I was very impressed with Dr Ament's knowledge, caring and follow though. He took quite a long time talking to me to understand the specifics of my issue and did offer off-the-shelf solutions for protocols that would have benefitted his business. Ultimately, we ended up with a very sensible plan of action

Dr. Ament was wonderful for my first visit but it fell apart the second. I drive a long way to see him and he was 45 min late. He forgot who I was and forgot why I was there. Then he advised me to do something I already told him I didn't want to do. I figured that everyone has a bad day and I called to convey some information to him and asked him to call me back. That was a few months ago and he never called me back (maybe he forgot who I was again).

Worst Doctor I've seen. He does everything in the office himself including scheduling and insurance. Cold, cocky and wants cash. When he found out my insurance changed he dropped me and would not return my phone calls. My new neurologist tried to get records sent over from him 3 times and he would not even respond to them. I would not recommend Dr. Ament.

I've been seeing Dr. Ament for over a year now and I must say that he is one of the best doctors I've ever had. I can tell that he really cares helping me reach the highest level of health possible. He is extremely thorough and very knowledgeable. He has a good bedside manner and his office is run very efficiently. He really takes the time to try and find the underlying cause of your head pain/neurological problems. I totally trust Dr. Ament.

I had an excellent initial consult. He took the time to listen and really heard what I was saying.
