in Newton, MA |
It is always a delight for my visits as the staff are just great, from the warm greeting at the front desk through the various staff members that I encounter. They are all personable and friendly and make for a pleasant visit. You are so much better than the various medical offices that I visit for treatment and show a sincere interest in my treatment. It is also an efficient, on-time run organization.

I will never forget how good it felt to have Dr. Ahmed listen to me sincerely when I first came to the office. My pain had been constant and debilitating for two years with medical treatment. He understood my symptoms and it has meant everything in terms of his treatment approach - I am much better thank God.
