Doctor Ahmad is a very good neurologist. He spends 25-30 minutes explaining everything in high detail. He is also a very honest person and does his job well. I recommend going to him if you are in the area

Poor Inter personal skills. Very Poor Communication skills. Poor knowledge of Neurology. Spend not more than 2-3 minutes . Writes on a tiny book. No skill writing. Writes in a different language. Very poor in diagnosing and explaining. Office assistants are helpful but seems like not professional....more

I had an appointment with the Doctor but he showed up for 3 minutes standing in the room no added value to what I already knew. The screening process by medical assistant is not why I went there.
