After my severe closed brain hemorrhage a year ago, Dr. Ahmed has taken and still takes excellent care of me. His attention to detail, excellent bedside manner and genuine care for me has seen me and my family through this very frightening time.

Dr. Ahmed is the most experienced neurologist in the entire region hands down, he has been doing this before I was even born, he spends lots of time with me as a patient and is in no rush when he is in the room. I couldn’t be more happier and satisfied as a patient, I don’t know that there is a case or problem out there that he couldn’t figure out and solve.

This man might be the kindest doctor that I have ever encountered. Not to mention, he's clearly incredibly intelligent and thorough. Not once, have I felt rushed to conclude business so he could move to the next patient. I believe Dr. Ahmed, seeks quality of service over quantity of patients. Admittedly, at times, it is difficult to understand him, not really because of his accent, but because he's a soft-spoken individual. He's great, especially, if you're one to ask a lot of questions.
