I had BAD headaches 24/7 for 8 months. Tried PT & massages. MRI showed a Chiari Malformation, so I drove to see a Jacksonville neurosurgeon. My MRI showed NO CM. Bummed — and still in pain. First time I saw Dr Amodeo, he ordered blood tests. I questioned if he were a real doctor. Odd communication skills. So I researched him. Then gave him 1 last chance. With his advice, I was PAIN FREE in a week. Now I take 1 pill if the headache returns —.3 in 6 months! I won’t see anyone else! He’s a Genius.
Dr. Amodeo is probably very good at what he does but, he has no basic idea how to talk to patients in common language. He deluges you with technical terms and when you question what they are he looks at and treats you like you are some kind of 3rd grade drop-out. If he is not sure of a diagnosis or doesn't believe or understand the issue he immediately goes to Psychiatric Issue. (there must be something in your past making this happen). Find someone who does not demean you.

I'm surprised by the negative comments. I have been to Dr Amodeo several times over the last three years and have found him to be very personable. He generally spends at least 20 minutes with me and answers all questions without appearing impatient, explains everything in detail and is friendly and approachable. I would certainly recommend him if I knew of anyone needing a neurologist.

I experienced medical symptoms for months and saw a couple of physicians. Dr. Amodeo ordered many test and scans. He got to the bottom of it. He called me personally with my results. I have not had that happen in sometime! A great doctor who is very knowledgeable. Recommended to my family.

I am a Registered Nurse with 'several years' experience. This doc is a JERK. I was there for Tremors, confirmed by my primary care. He told me the referral was for headaches (which I do suffer chronic migraines). He was asking me how this and that medication worked - I had NEVER taken these medications!! I conveyed this to him stating you must have someone else's information, he didn't even review the paperwork and he says 'so why are you here' NEVER AGAIN, NO, NO, NO

He is very arrogant and kind of makes fun of me. I went to him with neck and pain problems but he said my primary physician said I was there for restless leg syndrome. So I told him that I was having headaches, he had a CAT Scan done. He told me he didn't see anything. I went back and he said he doesn't take care of headaches, no neurologist does .
