I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Ahmed. He saved my Mom’s life in 2005 and was her and my Dad’s doctor until they both passed in 2016. I have been a patient of his for years and have never had a doctor so caring and friendly. Linda and Loretta are always helpful and friendly as well. I highly recommend this practice!

I've been a patient with Colonial Medcare for more than 10 years. The staff is pleasant, friendly and caring. Visits run on time and referrals are provided, if needed, for specialty areas outside the scope of this practice. The office is neat, clean and easy to locate with adequate parking available. Additionally Dr. Ahmed takes the time to listen and addresses questions promptly. Good practice. They care.
