Not much personality, but I guess I'm not paying for personality. Dismissive. Judgemental, i would imagine doctors who have made up their minds to treatment before actually meeting the patient are more likely to miss things. He wasnt open minded. Clearly hadn't read my file from doctor that referred me. Contradicted info my neurologist and rheumatologist have already given me based on spending about 5 minutes with me. Luckily just a surgical procedure and I will go back to my neurologist who actually cares. He is pompous and rather rude. His staff at Brig and Women ambulatory care are awesome!!

Dr Amato's criteria for diagnosing conditions is highly questionable. He failed to interpret a test properly, and failed to see what three other neurologists could see from his same test. He yields many false negatives, due to incorrect criterion, thus subjecting patients to many expensive and unnecessary tests. He also spends very little time with the patient. The entire time he was in the room he spent yelling at his staff.
