I have been a patient of Dr. Ahmed's for several years for more routine GI issues such as performing colonoscopes. Just before Christmas, I began experiencing severe digestive problems. By coincidence, during the same period, routine bloodwork I had done for an appointment with my cardiologist disclosed severely elevated liver function readings. I immediately contacted Dr. Ahmed's office. Although it was late on a Friday afternoon, and Dr. Ahmed was out of the office, his staff quickly contacted him and took action to arrange a needed CT scan on Saturday. I was added to Dr. Ahmed's schedule on Monday, and learned I had a tumor on my pancreas. Dr. Ahmed was clear and caring about all aspects of the diagnosis. Moreover, since this all occurred in the middle of the holiday season, he personally contacted the pancreatic disease specialist at Johns Hopkins to ensure needed care could be imitated without delay. Today, thanks to actions taken by Dr. Ahmed and his staff, my prognosis is good.

The receptionist lost my confidential medical data and had no explanation. The office is set up looking like it is in the 1940’s with old dirty furniture. This is a disgrace. The staff is unprofessional, rude, and irresponsible.
