I had a virtual visit with Dr. Al-Ahmad today. I can’t remember when I’ve ever been this impressed with a doctor visit, and it wasn’t even in person. He took his time, gave me all the information I needed, did not talk down to me, and I never felt hurried. He has a very pleasant manner. I recommend him with no reservations whatsoever.

Good experience! I reviewed his credentials and like what I read about his training and work experience. His demeanor and his knowledge made me comfortable that he would do a good job to fix my atrial tachycardia.

The visit was amazing. I have never seen such a beautiful and professional business. Everything from reception to the preop to the surgery and recovery was amazing. I have had two other cardiac ablations, both did not hold. Dr Al-Ahmad was recommended to me by my local cardiologist. I spoke to the doctor, sent my records and we decided to do a third ablation. It was successful and I am currently in a normal rhythm at 62 and that is without any arrhythmia medications. His technique, the advanced digital hardware and software and everything in the surgery room was beyond believe. I have a bad back due to several decades of lifting patients as a Paramedic. The first two were done on a stainless table and I hurt beyond belief when done. The table here had heated foam and I woke up with zero back pain. Final visit before leaving back to California, where I travelled 1700 miles to get surgery done here, everything was fine and he gave me his blessing .

Dr. Al-Ahmad performed a Cardiac Ablation on me about two years ago. His professionalism, bedside manor and attention to detail is like no other Doctor I've ever been associated with. I've had no issues with Afib after the procedure was done at St David's. With a sharp eye, Dr. Al-Ahmad noticed a small nodule in my Thyroid during the Ablation and called it to my attention. After testing it was identified as Cancer. I went to MD Anderson and had the nodule removed. Follow up has proven the Cancer has not spread. I would not have known about it if it weren't for Dr. Al-Ahmad calling it to my attention. He rid me of Afib and saved me from a nasty Cancer. I owe my life to him!
