Very rude, condescending and dismissive. He has lots of positive reviews, but if he is covering the hospital and busy, then watch out - you may see the "dark side" of Dr Ahmad. Not a pleasant experience.

Dr. Ahmad is an exceptional doctor and I highly recommend him. I have asthma and bronchiestasis and since I started seeing him on a regular basis he has helped me tremendously. He cares about you and his staff is very congenial as well. Karyle

Excellent! Dr. Ahmad took the time to come to Doctors Hospital on a Sunday to meet with us to discuss a procedure that my brother had to undergo during his stay in the hospital. Looking forward to his expert advice on the upcoming care and management.

Dr Ahmad visited my mother in law at Doctors hospital. He was great with her and was able to remove the fluid in her lung. Waiting for lab results.
