I was an ER patient at Gulfcoast when I 1st met Dr. Ahmad. I was 4 wks living in Cape Coral and I couldn't ask for a better physician match for both my COPD and sleep apnea. Judy, the office manager is to be commended for the smooth operation of both offices.The receptionist is extremely pleasant a nd sets the tone of your appointment. Matt, the physicians assistant, is a welcome addition to the practice. He goes about his duties efficiently and always with a pleasant attitude.

Dr Ahmad is one of the best, if not the best Doctor, I've ever had. He has improved my life and health in so many way's. He knows his trade very well. He also can effortlessly can explain, what is going on with your health in terms you can actually understand. I must also give his wife and staff a honorable mention! They are all wonderful people. Which to me is as important as every thing else. Tom Spera
in Fort Myers, Florida |
I am wholly satisfied with the treatment I received under Dr. Ahmad's care. He comes off condescending but I feel as it is because he is an expert in his field so his knowledge and responses to your questions and concerns sometimes can be perceived as such. It doesn't bother me, I obviously do not have the knowledge and training that he has. His office staff is wonderful, kind and personable. They really make you feel comfortable.
