    Patient Comments (6)
    Baton Rouge, LA |
    Dissatisfied with outcome of hand surgery. Condition worsened after surgery. Dr was baffled with outcome. Nothing offered as viable remedy.
    in Baton Rouge, LA |
    Would not recommend Dr. Ahmad. Did not listen to my requests, refused to do necessary diagnostic tests I requested resulting in his medical midiagnosis, delayed healing, and he tried to perform an unnecessary surgery on me which I refused and healed without his help through another doctor. He rushed diagnosis. Does not seem up-to-date with all current medical practices [was unaware of and did not recommend important technology that would speed healing and decrease pain of injury].

    He was very sweet and caring with my young daughter.

    i would not recommend this doctor - he is apparently not aware of some new medical technology and rushes his patients resulting in medical misdiagnosis and medical errors.
    in Walker, LA |

    in Baton Rouge, LA |
    He did not seem to listen to my report of what happened. He was very abrupt.
