Well he is a really good dancer!!!! Dr. Ahmed is part of my family now and he is a wonderful, kind, considerate, hopeful dance instructor soon! I heard he was going to retire and I wish Dr. Ahmed all AnnMarie's, Bryant's, Jonathan's, Bentley's, Danielle's and all that I hold dear. Thank you and your accomplishments. I have found comfort in life and take them each day at a time. Dr. Ahmed and Imbruvica Medication has what I feel brought me back from the dead! May life find blessings of plenty Dr.
