Dr. Ahmad and his team were excellent. The program includes nutrition, support groups and you are closely followed before and after the surgery. Recovery time was nothing short of remarkable. In my case, everything went smoothly with no complications and I was discharged the next morning.

Dr. Ahmad and his staff were wonderful and very professional. From front desk to all The Drs and assistances. I would highly recommend this practice. Aside from their kindness he is an amazing surgeon. I have minimal to no scarring and had almost no pain after my procedure. Unlike the other surgeon I used in the past they all have gone above and beyond to make sure I was doing ok after surgery
