What People Say About Dr. Mustafa Ahmed, MD
RecentMost Helpful

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.

Dr. Ahmed and his staff at Southern Nevada Bariatrics are the most understanding and caring folks I've met in the health industry in Las Vegas thus far. I would not recommend any other surgeon for bariatric surgery other than Dr. Ahmed. Thank you, Dr. Ahmed for changing my life!
