Cullman, Al |
After being transferred, by ambulance, from another hospital, my dad was unable to breath and had been given a low chance of survival. We prayed, we cried, and began to try to accept the finality of life. Then Dr. Ahmed walked in and we knew almost immediately that we would walk out of the hospital as we came in, an entire family. He did a new procedure called tav-r, it was like flipping a switch. His kindness and smile is only overshadowed by his obvious intelligence/ability. Grateful!

Met with Dr. Ahmed and his team for a 3D TEE which can be daunting procedure for the patient. His team (nurse Brooke, CRNA Jason, and Anesthesiologist Dr. Patel) immediately put me at ease with good information and answers to all my questions. They work very well as a team and I highly recommend Princeton Baptist Medical center as they were "All" perfect from my admission to discharge. After being in several hospitals for A-Fib related issues (including Cleveland Clinic) I will return to PBMC

Lived up to every expectation and even with such a strong reputation was so down to earth.
Dr Ahmed replaced my aortic valve last year. The procedure was done through my leg and I was able to go home 2 days after the procedure. I've been able to basically live a normal life since that time. I couldn't recommend him or his team enough, simply excellent.

Dr Ahmed fixed mothers heart valve and we are so grateful. She was told there was no option and would die. She is 86 years old and had been in 2 hospitals 5 times over 1 month for short breath when the tight heart valve was discovered. She was sent home to die and told her risk was too high. Finally we were referred to Dr Ahmed. He asked mother if she wanted him to try and he fixed the valve with mini-surgery. She went home in 2 days, we were shocked. She's doing so well. Dr Ahmed is the best.
