Cleveland Clinic strives to make scientific advances that will benefit patient care and support outside relationships that promise public benefit. In order for the discoveries of Cleveland Clinic physicians' and scientists' laboratories and investigations to benefit the public, these discoveries must be commercialized in partnership with industry. As experts in their fields, Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists are often sought after by industry to consult, provide expertise and education.

To assure professional and commercial integrity in such matters, Cleveland Clinic maintains a program that reviews these collaborations and, when appropriate, puts measures in place to minimize bias that may result from ties to industry. Cleveland Clinic publicly discloses the names of companies when (i) its physicians/scientists receive $5,000 or more per year (or, in rare cases, equity or stock options) for speaking and consulting, (ii) its physicians/scientists serve as a fiduciary, (iii) its physicians/scientists receive or have the right to receive royalties or (iv) its physicians/ scientists hold any equity interest for the physician's/scientist's role as inventor, discoverer, developer, founder or consultant.* In publicly disclosing this information, Cleveland Clinic tries to provide information as accurately as possible about its physicians' and scientists' connections with industry.

Dr. Amps is definitely an asset to the clinic.from the first time we met and all through the operation and post operation I felt very confident being under his care. I've waited years to take care of my back and I'm so so glad I waited. I highly recommend Dr. Ampsto everyone I meet. people are always asking me about my Dr. and since everything was explained in detail I have helped so many of my friends feel good about deciding about surgery. thank you

Dr seemed to leave my surgery decision completely up to me. I would have thought he would have said this is your better choice for what is going on with you but it is your decision ultimatley.. but this is what I recommend. And I really wish I could get in for my surgey alot sooner than I am scheduled.

I left there after seeing my physician not truly knowing much more than I already done. I was not happy with the visit! I expressed the discomfort I was in and how I couldn't stand losing mobility in my legs and arms!! Backpain, and neck is ridiculous. I can't stand it anymore. I was advised he wanted me to go to pain management therapy. I don't want pain medication, I want my issues fixed and off to a better life.

Dr. Jeremy Amps, the nurses and all other staff have blown my mind with exceeding my expectations. The hospital that is closer by my area makes me feel as if I'm a customer and if I have worse insurance then I'm less important. The 80 mile drive to Cleveland clinic hospitals and care facilities are worth it and I reccomend them to everyone!

I came to the clinic due to the confidence level and overall handling of my healthcare in my home state. I was VERY LUCKY that I was able to see a neurosurgeon while I was in town and not have to schedule and come back. Dr. Amps took the time to answer my questions and made me feel at ease. I have a great level of respect for your facility. I have a follow up in October. Thank you

Reviewed on Apr 8, 2019

I can not say enough good about Dr. Amps. I had received very little information from previous providers in my home state. Dr. Amps took time to answer questions I asked and explained what surgeries if any may be needed in the future if my symptoms worsen. I came to the clinic with a heavy heart about my future health, I left cautiously optimistic with knowledge that I may never need anything . I follow up in October with Dr. Amps.

Reviewed on Dec 3, 2018

Dr. Amps was meeting with me to do a one year follow up from back surgery that I had with a different surgeon that is no longer with Cleveland Clinic. Dr. Amps was did a great job of understanding the history of the situation and making sure that I was comfortable to move forward with no questions.

Reviewed on Dec 3, 2018

I had to wait in the waiting room approximately 30 minutes past my appointment time--however, I did not feel like I was being rushed during my appointment, and I feel that dr. amps does a great job of making all his patients feel that way, so it did not bother me that they were running behind- I think that spending time with patients that need the extra few minutes is important. I may have been a little more upset if I was waiting for more then an hour, but that did not happen.

Reviewed on Nov 23, 2018

I SHOWED UP ONE WEEK EARLY FOR MY APPOINTMENT. MUCH TO MY AMAZEMENT . THE STAFF ASKED THE DOCTOR IF THERE WAS A POSSIBILITY THAT I MIGHT BE SEEN THAT DAY. STILL MORE AMAZING , THE DOCTOR COMPLETED HISS APPOINTMENTS, STAYED LATER AND SAW ME JUST AF IF I HAD BEEN ON THE SCHEDULE. DR. AMPS WAS VERY CONCERNED ABOUT MY WELL-BEING , TOOK TIME TO ASK AND ANSWER QUESTIONS. HE SET ME UP FOR ADDITIONAL MRI'S AND STATED THAT HE WOULD HELP GET THEM AUTHORIZED SO WE CAN PROCEED TO GET ME WELL. THIS WAS A REMARKABLE EXPERIENCE BEYOND THE NORM. BRAVO TO DR. JEREMY AMPS & STAFF ! I WAS PLEASANTLY & CAREFULLY TREATED BY ALL PARTIES INVOLVED .
