The Dr listened to all of my physical complaints and addressed each and every one, Then explained the options and gave me further options past those if I decided to do more to improve my chances of regaining my Physical Health. Dr Ahmad is extremely knowledgeable and his staff are an incredible team. Thank you so much for giving me the best chance possible.

My Husband and I both have used Dr. Ahmad. He helped my husband with his back pain caused by a pinched nerve. He ordered a MRI and found the nerve affected and was able to release it with injections. I also had wonderful experience when I turned to him for my CTS of the right hand. We tried several options before ultimately I had to have surgery. Dr. Ahmad came highly recommend and I recommend him to anyone with pain their regular physician can't correct.

I don't get it with the negative reviews. He has treated both me and my 89 year old mother with excellence. He is sharp. If there was only negative, it is that he speaks very quickly with an accent, but as a positive, his assistant deals with that and is very detailed. I had to stop seeing Dr. Ahmad a couple of years ago due to insurance coverage changes, but he's back on my plan and I intend to return to him.

Apparently the review I left a couple years ago disappeared, but, the gist is he prescribed me a medication that nearly killed me, as it interacted with another med. It left me with debilitating pain in my legs and joints, all the while he attempted to charge me for a missed visit AFTER almost taking my life. He has no idea about drug interactions, or just doesn't care, until confronted by them.

He is rude and thinks he has a higher power and so are his employees. Twice I asked (and signed to have records transfer (due to a move) and they never faxed them.

He is always kind and considerate. He treats you like an adult not like others Pain Management places that treat you like a 2 yr old. He has you come back in the appropiate time as the State of Missouri mandates.
