Fort Myers, FL |
First of all, I never give an "excellent" rating, so 4-stars is as good as it gets from me. I met with Dr. Ahmad today for to go over my tests and ask him a few questions. He is very knowledgeable. I liked the way he answered my questions - he was not going to "put his foot in his mouth" and I admire that in someone. I am putting my trust in him and believe that he will give me the best treatment possible. I would not hesitate to recommend him..
in Estero, FL |
Dr. Ahmad is the best doctor I have ever had in my 71 years. I do not believe I would be alive if it were not for his competent care. He is caring, takes all the time you need. If you are hospitalized he will be a ferocious advocate working on your behalf! For sleep apnia, allergies, or lung issues - he is the best. His office treats you like family. I highly recommend him.

He was very informative. Took his time. Set up necessary tests. Nice man!
Cape Coral, FL |
Went in for allergies and wanted to be tested. Went right into a sleep study. Had that done at another doctor. Didn't feel listened to. Prescribed an inhaler that my insuranse Wouldn't pay for. Called for a different one. Nobody returned my call or called the pharmacy.
Thank you for the review; I am saddened to hear that your care was not satisfactory. Please call my office at (239) 437-6670 and we will do our best to rectify the situation. Sincerely, Dr. Ahmad

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.

I have seen Doctor Ahmad for a condition that I have had for several years. I have seen a great improvement under his care, which I did not experience with previous doctors. His staff is friendly and also very knowledgeable. I would readily recommend him to others.

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.
