I had my initial visit with Dr. Ahmed end of May. Dr. Ahmed first impression was fantastic. He listened to my concerns and gave me great advice. Not going to lie I was probably annoying to the front desk with wanting my referrals, but they were also super patient with me and attended my every need. I am now set for surgery June 21st. That was super quick! I will follow up with my after surgery reviews once that happens. Overall, I am super please with Dr. Ahmed and his staff! 10Stars!!

The first time I met Dr. Ahmed, I knew he was compassionate about his work and took a great deal of pride from the results. He listens first then he recommends what's best for you. The surgeries I had done in my stomach, back, and neck areas have changed my life. I am more confident and everyday I am trying on clothes that I haven't worn in years. To get the results you want is a process, however. So it's important to listen to the instructions of his staff as well. Those ladies have it going on. They have gone through the steps to inform you exactly what to do and the length of time it might take. For the first six weeks, please get the gentle massage to keep the water under skin flowing. At first, to wear the compression was uncomfortable but when I started to see great results I keep it on (stomach) everyday, and (neck) always when I'm at home. And I can't wait to get my vitamin shots for my hair. This entire experience was the change I have been craving for two decades.

Dr. Ahmed was the second Bariatric Surgeon that I was in contact with. The first was not accepted by my insurance and am I glad he wasn't. When I attended my seminar with Dr Ahmed I was amazed how sincere he was in his care for the individual more than how I would impact his bank account. It is rare to find a Doctor who really lives the oath he took to care for the Individual in his practice. I spent 6 months prior to surgery meeting with Dr. Ahmed and his staff as per my insurance requirements and I learned so much about my surgery that I was able to go into it with 100% confidence in the Dr. and his Staff. Post surgery has been a fulfilling experience and my success has been amazing. Since October I have lost 117.8 pounds under Dr. Ahmed's guidance. I strongly recommend Southern Nevada Bariatrics & Dr Ahmed to everyone.

Dr. Ahmed is a great surgeon, forthright, transparent, helpful and kind. My recent experience included a failed gastric bypass attempt due to unforeseen anatomical problems that was transitioned to a successful gastric sleeve. I am home recuperating well and the weight is dropping rapidly. His office staff, Maritza and Layla, are very helpful and quite involved with the individual and always have a smile. All questions were answered in a timely fashion. I highly recommend Dr. Ahmed.

Love Dr. Ahmed. he did my bariatric sleeve and fix a hernia while he was doing my sleeve. He cares about his patients . He is very through . Asking the right questions making me feel comfortable and at ease. Staff was very helpful. This was my first time to Las Vegas .I didn't know where anything was or how to get there. I am from a small town in north Alabama. They were quick to help me get to my appointments and to the hospital.

I love Dr. Ahmed and his staff. They are all excellent in taking care of their patients before, during and after the surgery. I cannot say enough good things about them. Below it asks how many office visits I have had in the last two years, I do not know if they mean all medical visits or with just Dr. Ahmed. I answered for all meds. With Dr. Ahmed I just had 4 visits. 1 preop, surgery, 2 post op in hospital, and one post op in his office before we went home. Go beliteweight.com to start.

Dr. Ahmed and his team surpassed all other surgeons that I inquired about in heart, skill, and organization. The journey through the process is a tedious one. The entire team is dedicated to making the experience a smooth one. Dr. Ahmed provides a FREE seminar at which you may ask questions that help you decide if the surgery is right for you. I felt completely safe in his accomplished hands. My gastric sleeve surgery was a complete success.
