What People Say About Dr. Naveed Ahmed, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I am very dissatisfied with my experience with Dr. Ahmed. My 5 minute visit was rushed and he seemed very unconcerned. He treated me as though I was looking for pain medicine, as I was crying from the pain caused by the hour trip, even though I have left 2 Drs because all they wanted to do was push drugs. He didn’t review my charts, labs or medical records from UK. He humiliated me, belittled me and then sent me away with only a two week appointment. He should be ashamed.

I would not recommend Dr. Ahmed to anyone. While I was in his office he talked on his cell phone twice...without an Excuse me or I'm sorry. He didn't seemed concerned with my seizures or the tumor. He just shrugged his shoulders and said, You can keep an eye on it.
