I can echo the Nurse's complaints. Dr Amrani doesn't seem at all interested in the health of his patients and has a horrible bedside manner. He would not commit to any concrete recommendations for activity level after a hernia repair and ignored complaints of pain that made it almost impossible to stand or walk.

I am a nurse who works with Dr. Amrani. He is very arrogant and doesn't make time for his patients. He often leaves his patients scared with unanswered questions. He has poor bedside manner and treats nursing staff as his punching bag if things don't go his way, and will often dismiss their concerns when brought to his attention. I've had patients ask me if he's angry with me or them because of the condescending way he talks to others. I would NEVER take my family or friends to him for care.

Dr. Amrani is an exceptional doctor. New Mexico is lucky to have him. He is extremely thorough and also very caring.
