Dr Ahmed is an example of what patients pray for when diagnosed with a serious illness. Dr Ahmed took the time to hold my hand, wipe my tears, and listen to me. Most of all encouraged me throughout the process of being treated for uterine cancer. I truly believe she saved my life.

Dr. Ahmed is wonderful. I was diagnosed with cervical cancer January of 2014 and she performed a radical hysterectomy on me March 5th. I owe my life to Dr. Ahmed and I am still her patient. Parents please check out the HPV vaccination. That is how I got cervical cancer.

Dr Ahmed diagnosed me with ovarian cancer in 2015. She's been with me every step of the way. She is the reason I am alive today. She's kind, professional and very knowledgable. I would recommend her to any woman that is looking for a gyn/oncologist
