Provider Reviews

He was very thorough. He looked at the studies that had been done and explained in very clear language why I didn't need surgery and what procedures could help with my multiple problems. Further, he helped me understand my problems better.

Review for Dr. Beshay

Dr. Ahmad is wonderful. I came in as an emergency patient with a ruptured globe. He is honest and explains everything in a very calming manner. The surgery was successful and I am healing well. He is a five star surgeon and I recommend him highly.
