What People Say About Dr. Ahmed Hefuna, MD

Dr. Hefuna is a knowledgeable psychiatrist with a terrible bedside manner. He is incredibly condescending and verging on disrespectful. He seems to assume all his patients and parents are uneducated and ignorant. He makes assumption about people without asking questions. While he did help my son I found him so off putting I decided to change doctors. Also the office staff is absolutely horrible. It’s incredibly difficult to make an appointment or get a prescription refill and they are down right rude!

I would never trust a psychiatrist again. After seeing him and asking help for my problems I've been having, I left feeding utterly betrayed. He has been late every appointment I've ever had by at least 10 minutes, but this visit it was by 27 minutes. When dealing with any patient, but especially one who's trust, anxiety, fears, and basic mentaI health is depending on your relationship with this person, I would think being temperate, reasonable, and respectful is BASIC professionalism, but I did not leave feeling I had been treated this way. If you dont care, he is the doc for you..... if you need someone Punctual, Respectful, and deserving of your trust and money.......keep looking. You wont get that here

Extremely rude. Demeaning towards patients. Always at least 45 min-1hour late for scheduled appointments. Please don’t see this doctor.

I like Dr. Hefuna because he prescribed me Lithium for the first time since I was diagnosed in 2011 and I felt the best than ever before. However, he's very reserved & I don't always understand what he's talking about. The office staff is another story. They are horrible!!!! When you call their office there isn't a person who answers it's just a message and it's impossible to get a hold of anyone. How in the world can you have a mental health office without humans answering the phone???

ALWAYS late for every appointment (over 25 min, to the point of rescheduling after having arrived and waited in office, for a 5-min eval). Called my sexual assault an "accident," and has prescribed ineffective, inappropriate meds more than twice. Will get frustrated if I don't understand his questions the first time, and treats me like my misunderstandings are intentional and/or a symptom of mental illness. Treats mental illness in general as a character flaw. Cold. Look elsewhere please.

Has moved around to many offices. Currently in Olney, MD. Has NO idea how to actually address disorders. He does not explain medicine changed, and in general, as an off-putting personality. He never smiles. Getting a hold of him is a nightmare. I have never has a problem with any other Doctor in my life. I looked for a new Dr. immediately.
