We are doctors who believe you should be treated by physicians upholding the highest standards of medical ethics to ensure the highest quality of health care.
Is this new treatment what I really should have? To answer that often asked question about new drugs or surgery, we have a star-rating system designed by leading doctors to give you some easy-to-understand answers. For example, how good are the “clinical studies” that say the treatment is effective? Were they paid for by the company that makes the product? Were the doctors in the research paid employees of the company? Or was this really independent high quality research? THIS is what AME sorts out for patients to understand!
You are not alone-AME is a community of ethical doctors you can rely on to help you find the right treatment and specialist for unbiased and independent treatment – not just the latest pill a company is pushing on TV ads and based on poor data that you find out about when it’s too late.
Also, do you want to know if your doctor is a paid consultant of the drug company whose pill he just prescribed for you – but are afraid to ask? Then check him or her on AME’s DOCTOR SEARCH database. AME has downloaded hundreds of thousands of names of ALL companies that have released information about their consultants and how much they’re paid. By 2013, this will be mandatory due to AME’s Herculean effort to get the Physician Sunshine Act passed that requires this transparency. AME’s president was the ONLY physician to testify before Congress for this – at the opposition of medical societies and companies alike, both of whom don’t want you to “follow the money” in research.
