I am from 9-11 I'm a first responder from when the World Trade Center was attacked. I have end-stage COPD very bad lung problems and dr. Ahmad is the only one that found out that clean eating my lungs every 3 to 4 months is keeping me going and making me live not a perfect life, but at least I could climb up the stairs now.

He ordered a series of tests - allergy, sleep study, pulminary, etc. When I went to see him, he indicated all was well and didn't review any of the results. Acted as if he didn't know they had even been run. It appears his sole interest is to generate traffic through his office with multiple office calls.

I arrived early for my 2:30 allergy appointment, went through the health assessment and was moved to the exam room at 2:30. All down hill from there! At 3:10 a nurse brought in two inhalers and told me these we recommended for me. When I asked who recommended them, she realize I had not been examined yet. About 20 minutes later, still no contact by the staff or Doctor, I went to the reception counter and told them I was leaving since I waited for an hour nobody had started a exam. Not sure if the problem was the utter chaos of the office staff, or just poor training. My time is important and I find that kind of wait with no contact or explanation from the staff unacceptable.

I was referred to Dr Ahmad for a follow-up from a biopsy. He was disinterested in the results and instead ordered more unrelated tests which would have led to 4-5 more office visits. I completed the additional C/T and labs. When I called the office to cancel the PFT, they told me he would not see me unless I completed the all tests he ordered. They canceled further appointments. Then I called back to get the results of the labs and they refused to give them to me unless I made an appointment, which they had just told me he would not see me unless I did all the tests. Seems like they want to keep you on a string . I'm going to someone else who doesn't strong arm you into lining their pockets and filing a complaint per Medicare instructions.

The doctor charged Medicare $525 for “an average 45 minute” consultation. In reality, however, he cut me short when I tried to give him a full picture of my problem and seemed disinterested. The codes for the lab work were incorrect. Three attempts by the lab company and myself to correct this were unsuccessful.

I was in Fort Myers on business and had an issue with my breathing. When I called to see if there was any chance they could see me to make sure it wasn't something serious, Receptionist was extremely comforting and got me an appointment the following day. Everyone was warm and welcoming, the office is clean, modern and professional. Dr Ahmad and his staff treated me like I was one of their regular patients and gave me excellent care. Thank you!

There are occasional disconnects between the office staff and the Dr or PA. Things like not inputting data from out of office tests so the PA doesn't see it when in for follow-up appt, which was about 2 weeks later. They also seem to have "challenges" with the downloading of the CPAP data cards. We were not informed that on the previous 2 appts they were unable to retrieve the data so I didn't bring it to the 3rd appt which is when we were told they had no data.

Today,I visited Allergy Sleep & Lung Care for a pulmonary test.The nurse(health care professional), Melody, who gave me the tests was absolutely wonderful. She was extremely pleasant, professional, and motivational. I was very impressed at how well she did her job. The tests consisted of various breathing exercises into an apparatus that she coached me through awesomely.I actually asked for her supervisor so that I could tell the supervisor how fortunate Allergy Sleep & Lung Care was to have her
