Palm Desert, CA |
I love my doctor. He is a kind and caring man. It is true that I sometimes have to wait longer than I would like, but I always leave Dr. Ahmad's office happy that all my questions were answered and fully understand his recommendations. Dr. Ahmad has treated my entire family for various injuries over the years; we have been very happy with his service and quality of care.
in La Quinta, CA |
This doctor doesn't explain surgical procedures. He rushes patients into surgery. He is unprofessional as is his front office staff. I would warn everyone to avoid Dr. Ahmad!
in Palm Desert, CA |
Extremely busy, no time to tell you anything. Always have to wait at least an hour to see him even with an appt. Doesn't seem to care much about the actual problem.
in Coachella, CA |
waited since 2:00 Pm to finally see him at 4:50 PM
He is rude and a slob.Talks down to you.Don't recommend at all.They pack the tiny waiting room and half to wait a hour or more to be taken back,and that's with a appointment.
