      He is extremely patronizing. He made me feel like an idiot for even being there. He refused to look at anything I had brought with me from a different clinic and told me he would just crumple them up and throw them in the garbage. He would not allow me to discuss any symptoms. He even told me that the two other doctors I had seen previously didn't know what they were doing and I just needed to lower my medication dose. I left with a prescription for the same thing I have been on for 2 yrs.

      He made me wait almost an hour both times I saw him then spent about 10 minutes with me each time, even though one of them was the initial appointment. He didn't allow me to finish reading my list of symptoms. I got about halfway down the list when he stopped me. I do not feel like I was able to give the basics about my symptoms or concerns.

      Excellent care...was very respectful.
      in Provo, UT |
      Dr. Ahmad is respectful and straight forward. I appreciate that he takes the time to make sure I understand the test results as he reviews them with me and takes time to explain what needs to be done in the future and makes sure I am okay with those future plans. I found him to be genuine and caring.
      in Salt Lake City, UT |
      The worst physician experience of my life. He is arrogant, egotistical and disrespectful, all in the extreme. After the first time I saw him, I was just angry about the experience, but I thought 'maybe I am making too much of it'. Then, the second time, I took my wife along. He was even worse. He didn't listen to us at all...and he wanted us to know he wasn't listening. She also experienced him as the most closed-minded and arrogant of any doctor she had ever sat with. You people can do better.
      I went in for a thyroid check up and he made me feel like I was only on the medication to lose weight. He was out to prove I didn't have hypothyroidism. I went off the meds for five weeks and felt horrible. All my symptoms returned. He only tests TSH levels and they came back within range so he told me there was nothing he could do for me. I asked him if it could be something besides hypothyroidism and to test me further. He refused to continue treating me. Very rude.
      in Provo, UT |
      Dr Ahmad, Was very rude and condescending. He had to be interrupted many times to be able to ask a question. He was more worried about me being over weight than he was about my thyroid or pituitary working. Do see Horrible experience.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
