Said that he was 99% sure that I did not have a tumor. Well the 1% outweighed the 99, there was a tumor. Dr. Amiri did order the MRI which revealed the tumor. This alone was the one positive thing that he did. MW-Charlotte, NC

Horrible bedside manner, horrible overall person. Rude pompous jerk. My 11 yo son was upset with this doctor by the time we left. This guy drilled my son, twisted his words, and asked questions he didn't understand but would get mad if we helped answer or corrected what the doctor was reading into these answers. He would not listen and said he does not care what anyone else says he will decide what's wrong. He tried to say it was psychological. We will NEVER go to him again. Avoid this guy. Staff were nice but not worth dealing with him.

Most terrible weird doctor I have ever met. Stopped seeing him after three visits. Did not care about me at all. You are all right, spread the word his bed side manor was the worst. Not to mention he is very weird. Made me really uncomfortable. The office is unclean, did not even attempt to change the bedding from former person laying on it!!!! GROSS.

Dr. Amiri was one of the most horrific providers in this area. I waited a very long time to see him after being seen multiple times at Urgent Care for my migraines & tension headaches which have been debilitating. Dr. Amiri has an unprofessional bedside manner. I was advised by one of the scheduling reps that he was one of the best at this practice, and that couldn't be further from the truth. What kind of doctor needs to dictate his note on a cell phone during patient time?

Dr. Amiri was very rude and condescending. Not only did we wait an hour and a half but when we got in there to see him he said both CT-A of brain and neck were negative. I had to step in and show him the radiology report for my CT-A of the neck where I have 65-70% stenosis of the internal carotid artery. He then said that that percentage of stenosis is not a big deal. Told me to come back in a year to re-check. Called my GP and explained, he said he wanted me in his office within 2 days.

Horrible bedside attitude; He'd rather hear himself talk than actually listen to your complaints. During follow ups, he had my history wrong and was demeaning. He said my family Dr was wrong, I was wrong and that the pain was psychological - despite the MRI he had in front of him. 3 months later, I'm about to undergo surgery for things he said didn't exist. Worst Dr experience of my life!

This is Mom's 3rd visit for restless leg syndrome. She had suffered for years & was ready to give up & die. Dr Amiri asked thoughtful questions & changed her meds. Her symptoms have completely gone away. This Is a miracle. Very knowledgeable. This visit she was having leg cramps and he prescribed a med for that. Bad reviews are likely from patients that do not want to take time to communicate. He has a soft voice. Can request that he not use recorder but does not bother Mom. Great doctor!!!!

Can't diagnose me I had 3 seizures almost 5 years ago and haven't had another since. He wants me on meds which I haven't been on in about 5 years. He is money hungry

Took my mother in law to see Dr Amiri. Her primary care physician wanted her to see a neurologist because of headaches she had been having. Since it would be 4 months before she could get an appointment with the neurologist she had seen 10 years ago she was sent to Dr Amiri, now I know why she got an appt so quickly! He was rude, condescending, no bed side manners whatsoever and what I can only describe as a bully!!
