What People Say About Dr. Shahida Ahmad, MD
Reply
She started out ok. Her records are not updated. I had an appointment after an emergency room visit, her receptionist did not scan records into system. Also updated her with current MRI, records not in get system. Waste of visit. Disorganized and didn't care to follow up after their mistake.
