Dr. Ahmad performed a sigmoid resection on in mid November. It was nearly a 5 hour surgery. I walked out of Providence 48 hours later. I stopped using pain killers 3 days later. I was driving 2 days after that. All bodily systems were working just fine. I credit the speed of my recovery to the remarkable degree of skill and understanding of Dr. Ahmad. What he does is the place where art meets science. And to boot, he's a genuinely pleasant person with a refreshing dry wit. He visited me twice in the hospital and called me at home a week out to see how I was doing. The entire experience far exceeded my expectations. I would recommend him without reservation.

I never felt rushed in any of my visits and he took great care to make sure to answer all my questions and to address my concerns. In addition to being an excellent physician, he's also a warm and compassionate human being and has a great sense of humor and positive attitude. I highly recommend him.

Rehan Ahmed is a dangerous person. I can't, in good conscience, recommend a man with the title of doctor who, I have witnessed personally, abuse his power at the health of those he has been tasked with treating.

Dr. Ahmad is a compassionate, patient, and knowledgable Doctor. I cannot speak highly enough of his service. He took the time to review my past surgeries and understand my condition. I have never worked with a more thorough Doctor that is also well mannered. Dr. Ahmad took the time to explain, in detail, what was going on with my body and thoroughly discussed the options. He was able to perform treatment immediately and explained in detail what I should expect for recovery.
