15/12/12 5 4 5 5 Dr. St. Amand is very kind and thorough. I was very scared the first time I walked into his office, and then to find out I have this life changing illness (fibromyalgia) but he totally put me at ease. He gave me all the infomation I needed to help start living my life again, and explain what was going on with me to my family. I recommend anyone who has recent found out they have fibromyalgia or have a family member who does read his book - "What your doctor may not tell you about fibromyalgia." Dr. St. Amand isn't just telling you try this medicine it "should" work. He tells you what works the best because he's taking it himself. He's an amazing doctor!

18/05/12 5 5 5 5 Dr. Amand has been treating me for Fibromyagia for at least 10 years. My condition has inproved from bedridden to a full and happy life. I still have fibro, however, I now know what to use regarding products, herbs etc to keep it at bay. If I do have a flair up I know it will go away. My son also has fibromyalgia, however, at 18 teen he was always in pain, with Dr. Amands help, he too is leading a happy, full life. Thank you Dr. Amand and the Staff. You saved my life.

17/01/12 5 5 5 5 If there is a better physician in practice today, I have yet to meet them or hear about them. Dr. St. Amand is a man dedicated to treating fibromyalgia and he has a treatment that works! He is full of compassion for his patients. Please, if you have fibromyalgia, do whatever it takes to see him and get on his treatment plan. I am convinced he will one day be nominated for a Nobel Prize in Medicine.

28/02/11 5 5 5 5 I spent over 6 years of suffering, seeing every Doctor imaginable.... even the top Doctors at Cedar Siani doing endless test with no results. I was prgressively getting worse when my husband came across Dr. St Amand on the internet and got an apointment that day. He has amazing bedside manor, has a genuine concern for his patients. I started seeing Dr. St Amand before Thanksgiving and was diagnosed with Fibromyalsia. I had over 70 affected areas on my body chart. It is now late February and I am not only feeling better I am back to work something I could have never thought of doing over the last 6 years. God Bless Dr. St. Amand and his staff!

27/01/10 5 5 5 5 Amazing! Amazing! The person who said "his schtick is using Guaifenesin" obviously never tried Dr. Amands protocol. It works. (I was skeptical at first) You don't even have to believe in it. Just do it, be patient and get well! He's amazing and he's patient, kind, caring and one of the most knowledgeable doctors I have ever met. He gives much hope to patients with Fibromyalgia. Excellent doctor!  Respond

05/06/09 5 5 5 5 Dr.St.Amand is one of the best doctors I ever saw. He specializes in fibromyalgia which is a difficult specialty in many ways. He also tries to help in other areas and is one of the few who treats the whole person. He does something else that is very rare: He LISTENS to patients. For this doctor, patients come first. He is focused, experienced, sharp and quite personable. I recommend him highly.

17/08/08 5 5 5 5 Perhaps the best physician I have ever consulted in my life. Knowledgeable and kind. A "real" doctor, like the old days, not like these new doctors who seem to be trained by the pharmaceutical companies and have nothing to offer except another expensive prescription medicine. This man is a treasure.

23/05/07 5 5 5 Dr. St. Amand is the most dedicated and professional doctor I have ever encountered. He has chosen a path that his peers have not made easy, but for which his patients are eternally grateful. I am well on the way to a pain-free life as a result of following the guaifenesin protocol which has enabled me to control the pain caused by fibromyalgia.  Respond
