Patient Comments (1)
Houston, TX |
I visited Dr Ahmed's office with my elderly parents and the total time of our wait to see Dr Ahmed was just shy of 4 hrs. Totally ridiculous! Yes my parents do not work and have no where to be, but I have a job and live 45 minutes away from their home and then have to drive backwards to get them to the doctors office. The staff is very helpful and kind, but Doctor Ahmed really needs to reconsider how long he leaves patients sitting, waiting on his office.
