      My experience with Dr. Ahmad was positive and wonderful! I have researched and saw many other surgeons. Dr. Ahmad is incredibly knowledgeable as well as compassionate. He takes the time to thoroughly explain the process to you as well as answer any questions or concerns you may have. The staff are also incredible.

      Dr. Ahmad performed a Gastric Bypass on me several years ago. He and all of his staff perfomed outstanding medical care on me and I highly reccommend him to anyone contemplating bariatric surgery.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
