What People Say About Dr. Ahmad Tuffaha, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

This nephrologist did not provide patient education regarding renal failure treatment options. He just ordered me to in-center HD dialysis at a dialysis clinic that is only open 3 days a week. I mentioned that I would not be able to continue working. He didn’t see why not. I said that the dialysis clinic he was planning to make me use was only open 3 days a week. It would knock out three of five workdays. It was clear that Dr Tuffaha didn’t care. I’m a proactive patient who expects to have an active role in my medical care. Clearly this doctor is not comfortable with that. This doctor also sees no need to share all treatment options with the patient.

Dr. Tuffaha was very professional, knowledgeable, kind, compassionate, and patient in his care of me. When I had an acute kidney issue arise suddenly, with no prior history, he made room for me to be seen within a few days, even though I was a new patient for him. It would be a great pleasure to recommend him to family and friends.
