Dr. Ahmed saw me through diagnosis and treatment for thyroid cancer. I am so happy that my primary referred me to him. He is extremely knowledgeable and answered my many questions thoroughly and without patronizing. My messages to him (via the online MyChart) were answered promptly. His manner is reassuring, softspoken and very kind. What more could anyone want in a physician?

I saw Dr. Ahmed for thyroid management. He had a medical student or resident see me before he came into the room and then barely talked to me.

Just a waste of time. Worst doctor I came across. I took my wife to him because she had some thyroid problem. He is not interested to listen the patients problems. The worst thing he did was to give a dose of medicines and he is still sending the refills to my pharmacy. My wife had a test recently and she came to know that her low thyroid had gone beyond the normal level but the doctor never followed up. Just automatically sends the refills not even knowing the condition of the patient.

What a waste of my time! He does not believe in listening to his patients nor does he believe in the possibility that TSH is not the gospel when it comes dealing with hypothyroidism. He asked me what was wrong with it because it wasn't my thyroid, but offered no help nor tests to figure out what is wrong with me. Just dismissed me as a menopausal woman and told me my weight gain was not a concern.

While Dr Ahmed is a very competent physician, his office is often frustrating to deal with. They have called the wrong pharmacy for needed medications, have called in incorrect medications to the pharmacy, and failed to call the correct pharmacy when the pharmacy requested call back to confirm the correct medication - additionally they have failed to request needed blood labs to Quest requiring unnecessary repeated visits, and exhibited a defensive posture when asked to correct these mistakes.
