Default My experience with the ripoff company called AMO.

It's a horrible company. I asked for a psychiatrist to be set up with a neurologist. They told me it's outpatient/inpatient rotation, while it was only outpatient. Told me it was a teaching hospital "the hospital the doctor used to work at", while it was not.

Default AMO Worldwide is a just another baby-scam

I have been given wrong details of the doctor. The doctor doesnt even work in a teaching hospital as mentioned by AMO. AMO told me it was an inpatient&outpatient setting but it was only outpatient setting in NewYork. They gave me the wrong office address where the doctor doesnt practice anymore and I had to google him to find his new office on my very first day of reporting. the doctor comes to the clinic only 3 times a week and stays for 2-3 hrs on the day he comes. So, he saw me like 12 times in 4 wks I was there. He always discouraged me for pursuing a medical career by saying things like doctors are no more making enough money and I could as well open a restaurant rather than being a doctor. Can you believe that. At the end of the rotation, he didnt even write me an LOR saying that he didnt see me enough to give me an LOR. By the way I never missed any of those 12 times he came to the clinic. AMO ripped me off literally. This is nothing short of a scam. Imagine how much I could have spend to find temporary accomodation in NewYork apart from hefty amount AMO charges.
