I had my first colonoscopy with Dr. Ahmed… not that it is a pleasant experience for anyone (due to the awful prep day), but when I got home I had a negative after-effect. Dr. Ahmed called me immediately and counseled me as to my next step. He called again to check on me, reassuring me even if I had to return to the hospital to see him. He solved the problem and continually checked on me. He reiterated that I need NOT freak out (which I was readily doing), and that if I needed him after hours, his office would find him, and he would call. Highly recommend Dr. Ahmed. Not only due to his excellent knowledge but also due to his kindness.

I was glad to see Dr.Ahmed. I hadn’t been able because of Covid-19. I first saw him in 2019 and he found the reason for my anemia and arranged for iron infusions in a room at the clinic. This past time, he did an endoscopy to stretch my esophagus and to check my stomach for any ulcers. There were none. He took biopsies from my esophagus and called me when he got the results and referred me to an allergist because the inflammation in esophagus appeared to be caused by my having to cough so hard to clear my throat. I think he took the extra step in referring me to an allergist and I really appreciate his looking out for my well-being.

I can’t say enough good things about Dr Ahmed’s comprehensive care and attention to detail. While at his office, he scheduled me for a future CT but when I told him I was going out of town the next day, he managed to get the CT scheduled that same day. Dr Ahmed called me the very next morning with the results which was such a relief.

My previous gastroenterologist retired last year, so I was referred to Dr. Ahmed after a trip to the emergency room with elevated liver functions. I was very impressed with him from the beginning of the visit. He was extremely thorough during the intake and examination. He paused several times to ask if I understood what he was describing. He also asked multiple times if I had questions and took the time to address all of them. I was so impressed that I’ve already referred a friend to him.
