Dr Ahmad is a very knowledgeable and caring physician who takes the time to listen to you and evaluate your needs. I have always felt that she takes the time to understand my concerns and answers my questions thoroughly. I would highly recommend her to my friends and family.

I feel so lucky to have been recommended to Dr Ahmad and become her patient several years ago. She is a very compassionate and caring physician. I had only recently been diagnosed with RA at the time and it was severe. I was practically incapacitated. But Dr Ahmad worked with me until we found, not just total relief from the pain, but the right combination of medications which restored my physical health and abilities. I can not say how how much her ongoing care means to me.
in Davis CA |
I was experiencing a great deal of pain and having trouble sleeping, but was concerned because my symptoms were so subjective. Dr. Ahmad listened attentively, examined me and told me she would rule out rheumatoid arthritis with hand and hip X-rays, as blood tests don't always tell the full story. My X-rays were negative, so she was able to diagnose me with fibromyalgia and treat me successfully. If I'm having a trouble she always works with me and adjusts my treatment plan;she's one in a million

I have Ankylosing Spondylitis. She did not have an adequate knowledge base about the disease. I had to do my own research and change doctors to be able to follow a suitable course of treatment.
