Dr Ahmed takes his time to listen to you and addresses your concerns. Explained surgery and what to expect following surgery in details that are understandable. Surgery was successful and my recovery was just like he told me it would be. Office staff is very polite both in person and on the phone. They return calls promptly with the information requested. If needed, I would not hesitate to have him perform surgery again.
