I recently had cataract surgery and found Dr. Ahmedto be the best!!! He took time to fully explain the procedures he would be using. At the surgical center everyone took very good care of me. In the follow up visits he has shown great interest and concern in a very professional manner. I would highly recommend him to anyone considering cataract surgery.

Dr. Ahmed removed my cataracts in both eyes. He is very knowledgeable and answered each question that I asked! He was very patient explaining exactly what was going to happen, not only before the surgeries but also during the surgeries. The entire process was very smooth and the staff in the office was also very helpful. I am pleased that there are several follow-ups and feel very confident that I would recommend him to anyone for these eye procedures!!

Dr. Ahmed is a wonderful doctor - he is kind, patient and takes the time to answer all of your questions. He is very knowledgeable and makes you feel that you are in good hands and you are! Dr. Ahmed performed cataract surgery on my left eye in February and my vision is even better than expected. He is now my go to doctor for all my eye care needs.

Dr. Ahmed performed cataract surgery on both my eyes, one the end of Feb. 2019 and the second early May, 2019. From beginning pre-op discussions to post-op exams all was very positive.

Dr. Ahmed treated my cataracts successfully. I see better now than I have in decades. Before treatment, he clearly explained the benefits and disadvantages of each option, as well as the costs associated with the options. During treatment, he was most efficient. After treatment, he answered precisely all follow-up questions. Throughout, his manner was compassionate and his approach professional.

I needed to see an opthalmologist for a persistent sensation of something in my eye. I got an appointment quickly with Dr. Ahmed. Wow, I really liked him a lot. He diagnosed my problem right away and got me on a treatment plan and now my eye is healing nicely. Not only is he a great doctor but he's got a great personality. I'm moving an 1 hour 45 minutes away in 2 months, but I swear if I need to see an ophthalmologist I will make the trip to see Dr. Ahmed. He's that good.

My first visit with Dr. Ahmed was very informative. Dr. Ahmed answered my questions and provided me with the information needed to make an enlightened decision. Dr. Ahmed's staff was professional and knowledgeable regarding the procedure. Their were no surprises the day of surgery. I had been properly prepared by Dr. Ahmed and his surgical staff.

My vision was deteriorating and I needed cataract surgery. Dr Ahmed's examination was thorough, his explanation of alternatives was clear and helpful. The surgery was uneventful and a complete success. I recommend Dr Ahmed highly and without reservation.

After two years of my former opthalmologist dismissing the symptoms of double vision I described I sought another opinion with Dr. Ahmed. He has perfomed cataract surgery on my eyes and as of today I have 20/20 vision in both for the first time in many years. There are not enough superlatives for this former nurse to express what I consider to be the tender and exemplary care I received at his hands and I could not be more pleased with the life changing results.

Dr. Ahmed is a truly exceptional ophthalmologist who thoroughly evaluated the condition of my eyes and the complications for age-related cataract surgery the concerned me (congenital cataracts and torn retina). Laser surgery with Dr. Ahmed has given me the clearest vision I have had in my life: 20/20 vision in one eye and better than 20/20 in the other. Moreover, I now see a world that is bright and colorful. I can't thank Dr. Ahmed enough for the significant improvement he made to my life!
