I was impressed by Dr. Ahmed's personable but professional nature, and great sense of humor. In June 2020 he repaired my umbilical hernia, and did a laparoscopic repair of my inguinal hernia. I didn't experience any post-surgery pain. Every aspect of my experience was outstanding, from Dr. Ahmed and his office staff, to the staff, nurses and anesthesiologist at the Stone Springs Hospital. I am very thankful for the level of care I received, and highly recommend Dr. Ahmed and the Stone Springs Hospital.

I was in a great deal of sudden pain, and my own physician’s office, because of Coronavirus, offered me only a video conference call six days later. They were zero help. My daughter then called her doctor who recommended Virginia SurgeryAssociates, and I had an office appointment with Dr. Ahmed only three hours later. Everyone in that office was efficient, professional, and kind. Dr. Ahmed made a correct diagnosis of diverticulitis, and his staff immediately arranged stat bloodwork and a CT scan for me, and went out of their way to make sure I had the right directions to the nearest hospital. They were there for me in the days after diagnosis, even though I did not need surgery. I especially appreciate that Dr. Ahmed told me exactly what to do and where to go if things got worse, and assured me that I should call at any hour if I needed them. Everyone at VSA not only cared for me, but made me feel that they cared about me as a person.I cannot recommend Dr. Ahmed and VSA highly enough.

I found Dr. Ahmed and his staff to be professional and responsive. My general practitioner had two hernias repaired by Dr. Ahmed and referred me to him. The surgery appears to have gone well though a month out and I still have some discomfort. I called the nurse at the practice who provided advice, letting me know it take more time to heal. I would recommend Dr. Ahmed to others.

I selected Dr. Robert Ahmed based on an Internet search for a hernia consult. I found him very professional but personable with a great sense of humor. He took the time to make sure that all my questions were answered. He performed a laparoscopic robotic repair which by all accounts was a complete success. I recommend him as a surgeon for hernia issues and would not hesitate to use him again should the situation warrant.

Dr Ahmed thoroughly explained my condition, treatment options and didn't push surgery on me (although that was what I ultimately decided made the most sense). He made me feel very comfortable in the decision making process and went over the surgical procedure and recovery until I was satisfied that I knew what was going to happen. Everything went according to plan and my recovery was spectacular! I had been misdiagnosed for two years by other doctors and ERs and I'm now so relieved I won't have these pains ever again!

GREAT surgeon, GREAT sense of humor, a doctor with whom it is VERY easy to speak and ask questions. If you need an organ removed (or, presumably, put in), I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Ahmed. When he removed my gall bladder, he even found a watch I lost years ago! The staff at Stone Springs Hospital from Outpatient Registration to Surgical Recovery are TOP NOTCH. It's REALLY reassuring to know that there is a wonderful hospital so close to home.

Dr. Ahmed is an exceptional surgeon who truly listened, reached out to my daughter's other specialists and took extra precautionary steps to ensure her safety and well being. My daughter has had several surgeries from various surgeons but this was the first time I felt like she was in safe hands. I highly recommend Dr. Ahmed!

I was referred to Dr. Ahmed by my primary physician for gallbladder surgery removal because I was in severe abdominal pain. With one look at me Dr. Ahmed said.... "we need to get your gallbladder out now!" He was very personable, knowledgeable and caring about the surgery that I had to have the very next day. I was extremely pleased with his manner, understanding and compassion of the situation and completely put me at ease with my upcoming surgery. He & his staff are THE VERY BEST in medicine!!

Dr. Ahmed was my surgeon for inguinal & umbilical hernia repairs, colon resection, & I was a breast cancer husband when he performed bilateral mastectomy for my wife. He is very considerate; he kept me fully informed & comfortable w/recommendations & procedures. He has a wonderful, caring, & humorous personality. He is clearly technically superior, & he provides the perfect balance of professional care and personal caring. I regularly & wholeheartedly recommend him to as many ppl. TY Dr A!! :)

I was referred to Dr. Ahmed to repair two hernias. Following an initial examination, my surgery was scheduled. From my initial appointment through the surgery, I received excellent care. From the initial appointment through the follow-up, my experience was exactly as outlined by Dr. Ahmed. Were I to require a future surgery, I most certainly would seek care at Virginia Surgery Associates.

I highly recommend Dr. Ahmed for complex patients. Not only was my initial appointment informative and reassuring, Dr. Ahmed took steps to insure that I met with the anesthesiology team as well to insure the most complete, well rounded care during my surgery. I was incredibly impressed with his knowledge and capability to create a safe environment. Dr. Ahmed took care to leave as little scarring as possible when operating so I was left with only four small incisions. I am incredibly impressed.

After a suspicious mammogram, I was referred to Dr. Ahmed. His manner is professional, reassuring and personable. In the office and hospital he explained the recommended procedure, invited questions, and inspired confidence. His office team is accessible and supportive. If I ever have to go through this again, I will return to Dr. Ahmed!

Two weeks ago today Dr. Ahmed performed a Robot XI assisted, Laparoscopic hernia repair, Inguinal (Right) with mesh on me. Today I feel great. In fact, I never had to take the Vicodin that was prescribed. After three days, I even stopped taking Advil. Because of that, I was able to drive three days after surgery. I resumed working out (much less weight) yesterday and even played a few holes of golf. Dr. Ahmed and his team (Mary and Dynese) prepared me for the surgery perfectly.
