What People Say About Dr. Shahzad Ahmad, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Negligent. Never had any education or explanation of my conditions whatsoever. He told me 100% I have Hashimoto’s and have me hormones without checking my levels. Turns out I have Grave’s and went severely hyperthyroid. His office never returned any calls. I had to walk in to get my labs and had to keep insisting I needed a test they forgot the last time too. They had to call me after I left to say I was right but needed to go to a difference lab. I could have done all of it at my lab instead of it being an all day thing all over town. I kept calling about another lab indicating if I could start my medication, but for over two weeks they said they had the results back but Dr. Ahmad still needs to look at them. You see, untreated hyperthyroidism can be dangerous. I was at the urgent care yesterday. I found a new doctor that tests before giving medications. I told his receptionist about being ill and she was very uninterested. Canceled my follow up and found a better doctor.

After seeing many endocrinologists in Utah; Dr. Shahzad, in Endocrinology Center of Utah located in Lehi was the exact consultant I was looking for! Very straightforward, accurate diagnosis and gave me knowledgeable information about my condition. Furthermore, he gave me clear cut instructions, and made me feel much better after leaving my appointment. I’ll be continuing with him and I would definitely recommend Dr. Shahzad to others.

I am truly blessed to have found Dr.Shahzad Ahmad at Lehi. When I first came to his office, I was confused and a complete mess of what was happening. He took his time explaining me my disease which helped me understand the real concern. I left his office with confidence and reassurance, which made me feel that he was the doctor for me as he knew what I was going through. Now, I have been consulting him since the past year, and have experienced visible results. Thank you for your assistance Dr.Shahzad!

I have been a diabetic for 12 years. Reaching out to Dr. Shahzad was one of my best decisions. On my every visit at his Lehi office, he ensures that I’m taking my medications on time, and regularly updates my supplements & medicines according to my test results and health improvements. I appreciate having him as my doctor.

Very thankful to have Dr. Shahzad Ahmad as my endocrinologist. He’s been very supportive and understanding of the challenges that I’ve been facing since the past 4 years with my type 2 diabetes. He’s passionate about his area of medical practice and I can clearly see that as he has helped me in bringing drastic changes in my health only through his passion & motivation to genuinely help his patients. Best thing is that he has shifted his office to LEHI which is not so far now from my home.

Dr. Shahzad Ahmad is highly professional, very humble and always listen to me very carefully. I had gone to other doctors before but Dr. Shahzad Ahmad was beyond reproach. He prescribed medication and now I feel much better physically. I would never go to any other doctor for my problem.

Last month I felt pain at the base of my neck, which was causing swallowing and breathing difficulties. I consulted it with my family doctor, who diagnosed me with fluid-filled lumps in my thyroid and referred me to Dr. Shahzad Ahmed at Endocrinology Center of Utah. I found Dr. Shahzad Ahmed very kind and expert in treatment. He suggested a fine needle aspiration biopsy. Now I feel quite comfortable and healthy with his treatment. My overall experience with Dr. Shahzad Ahmed was excellent.

My experience with Dr. Shahzad Ahmed at Endocrinology Center of Utah was tremendous. I never felt rushed or pressured to make a decision. He answered all of my questions related to my autoimmune disease and worked with me to decide on the best treatment. He and Lora showed genuine care for me. I recommend Dr. Shahzad Ahmed to anyone experiencing thyroid related problems.

My experience with Dr. Shahzad was exceptional. He took time and answered all the questions that I was concerning the post-surgery visit. Staff are professional yet friendly and caring. The ease of moving from one area to another was great in Park City Hospital. I would recommend Dr. Shahzad to anyone looking for the best endocrinologist.

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Shahzad Ahmad! He is a wonderful doctor. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Dr. Shahzad is always willing to help me at any time and goes out of his way to make sure our needs are taken care of. He spends enough time with you to get to know you and to treat the whole person. Dr. Shahzad was highly recommended to me by another physician and I totally see why. His nurse, Lora, is great, too. Thanks to a great team!

Few months ago, I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism and was treated at Park City Hospital by Dr. Shahzad Ahmad. As always, my visit with Dr. Shahzad Ahmad was great! He is always so good at covering all the bases. But the one thing I would say is his outstanding trait, he is never in a hurry and answers all my questions and concerns. I would recommend Dr. Shahzad to anyone seeking best endocrinologist in Utah.

Dr. Ahmad is super knowledgeable and friendly. My appointments with him are always quick and easy, but he does not rush through them and makes sure that all of my questions are answered. Since my appointments are usually booked long in advance, I sometimes forget to work them into my schedule. In those cases, his staff is always understanding and flexible with me getting things rescheduled.

I went from doctor to doctor trying to find a cause for my weakness and thyroid tenderness symptoms for the last two months and they could not find a diagnosis and they kept putting me on some different medications. But those medications made me feel worse. Then one of my friend suggested me to visit Park City Hospital. I visited there and met with Dr. Shahzad Ahmad. I found him knowledgeable and expert in his field. I could see him thinking as he kept asking me more and more questions and diagn

After being referred to Park City Hospital by my local doctor, I have been seeing Dr. Shahzad Ahmad for over two years now for autoimmune disease and have had nothing but a wonderful experience. Dr. Ahmad listens to your concerns, spends as much time with you as needed and genuinely wants to get to the bottom of the disease. He is very quick in getting lab results back to you. I found him proficient in his treatment expertise. He is always available for any questions or concerns. Thank you Dr. S

I was recommended to visit Park City Hospital for my thyroid. I went there and visited Dr. Shahzad Ahmad. Where I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism and Propylthiouracil (PTU) was recommended. Now after two weeks of Propylthiouracil, I am feeling quite well. I found Dr. Ahmad very supportive and open to discuss anything about my disease and treatment. Now I am looking forward for my next follow up with him.
