Dr Ahmed was patient, thorough, and extremely nice. He listened to all my information and asked me follow up questions so he would fully understand my condition. I thought he was fabulous. I am going to make an in person appointment with him in the up coming month. I would absolutely recommend him if you are looking for a new doctor or just a second opinion

EXCELLENT! He is such a caring Doctor. Listens to ALL you have to say and answers your questions so honestly and detailed. Never makes you feel like you are just another patient. Never hurries through appointments and leaves you feeling that you are important to him. The best among my care takers.

Visit was for a refill of intrathecal pump. As usual Dr. Ahmed is very caring in kind. I am a retired anesthesiologist and have had experience. Dr. Ahmed is superior to any other physician I have had for pain management. On a scale of 1 to 5 he is a 10.

Dr Ahmed saw me promptly at short notice He explained the reasons for the procedure, and performed it without undue delay, even though my visit had not been scheduled in advance. The treatment was performed very competent and without causing significant pain. The effects of the procedure were explained very clearly and I could report back to him if there were any unyoward effects
