What People Say About Dr. Ahmed Nizar, MD
Reply Flag
Do not go to see Dr. Nizar for psychiatry. He is an awful doctor. He earned his degree from an island I have never even heard of. If you have depression, he expects you to give him a full answer as to why you are depressed and doesn't listen or communicate at all. I would never recommend going there. Do yourself a favor - DONT.
