Dr. Ahmad Says:

Literally save my life. He listened and observed, payed attention to my condition and needs. I find his command of the English language quite acceptable. He is very knowledgeable and understanding as well as professional. I would highly recommend him to any one who is serious about overcoming any issues. Thank you Dr Ahmed.
in Greensburg, PA |
I had a great experience with Dr. Ahmad. He was very attentive to my son's needs and explained the choices in his medications to me. This is such a difficult illness to deal with and having support from a physician was nice during this time. My son is improving everyday.
in Greensburg, PA |
Dr. Ahmad barely speaks or understands English. He never makes eye contact with his patients, which is very disturbing. He gets angry, dismissive and defensive when anyone has a hard time communicating with him. His knowledge of pharmaceuticals is severely limited and he tends to over prescribe the same medications for every patient, putting them into a state of sedation that makes living a halfway normal life impossible. Avoid Dr. Ahmad at all costs.
