About Me

For me, there is a special gratification that comes with being a surgeon. Being a surgeon requires clinical knowledge and technical skill. While I certainly take pride in that, I believe it's the emotional connection with patients that elevates surge...

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.

He performed a hernia repair on me laparoscopically, and the surgery went very well with minimal pain and quick recovery.

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.

Had an inguinal herni repair and could not be happier with Dr. Ahmed, his staff and the quick scheduling of my surgery. I’ve had minimal pain and would highly recommend him.

My surgery experience with Dr. Ahmed was outstanding. My surgery and recovery went very smoothly without complications or setbacks. In addition, Dr. Ahmed has a great bedside manner and is very patient. He always had a positive attitude, took the time to answer my questions, asked how I was doing, and explained my procedure in terms I could understand.

You will find no better surgeon than Dr. Ahmed. He is simply the best in all areas. Great surgeon. Great communicator. Great person. His staff is always outstanding. Smart, kind and competent. I have two Surgeries over the past three years...everything went perfectly in all ways. Cannot say enough great things about the doctor and the practice. John L

I went to the ER at 3 am on a Sunday with pretty serious pain. Dr. Ahmed operated on me later that morning. His analysis of the situation was accurate and he was able to resolve my issue. He correctly set me expectations: my recovery has proceeded as he predicted. When I had questions after my surgery, the nursing staff was phenomenal: helpful, patient and understanding. I was very impressed at my post-op checkup and how much time he spent answering questions.

Spent over $100 for 10 minutes of his time. I could've just googled what he suggested.
