As an initial visit I found it to be as expected and only offer my desire for Dr's to be more forthcoming as to what they are looking for when sending pt's for tests etc.

She is very personable, knowledgeable and reassuring. She listened to all our concerns and explained her thinking about the problem in easy to understand language. Couldn't have asked for any better care. Her staff is welcoming and the wait time was quite reasonable. Very busy admitting area because that area is for multiple physicians. Don't let that concern you! Even the admitting staff was friendly & helpful. Very impressed!

I have been a patient of Dr. Sophia Ahmed’s for almost a year. She is warm, caring and listens. Last visit I told her she should teach other medical professionals her social skills. Her nurse is so pleasant and welcomes you and actually thanks me for coming in!

I’ve been with Dr Ahmed for over a year. She’s pleasant but often forgetful of things discussed. She is always running very late but does take her time with patients. The staff are moderately pleasant. It’s impossible to get ahold of anyone on the phone though. You’ll wait on hold to talk to a nurse for a good 20+ min. Scheduling has to be done a good month or more out. I’ve had to wait more than an hour to be seen more than once. It’s more the typical than the exception really.

My elderly mother, who has Alzheimer's was there, a nurse took her to the restroom and walked away with another patient. My mom, who is 87, got out of the facility and was walking down Tiffany Blvd. in the pouring rain! They didn't call the police. We were notified when PSL police called us to say they had her and that a good samaritan had picked her up and called them! There is NO excuse for this. I wouldn't recommend this group to anyone.

Dr Ahmed is the best doctor I have ever had. She told me "you are not just a back, you are a whole person." She found my AAA and several other conditions that were corrected I lost a great doctor when she moved to Florida.

I was very happy with the service and advice she gave me. I would recommend this Dr. She is knowledgeable and takes the time to listen and answer your questions. My husband and I liked that when I couldn't answer she listened to his answers as well. She is sending me for test that will help find out what is going on with me and it didn't take 4 days in a hospital to find out nothing as it did in Okeechobee's Hospital. Thank you for your time and effort to help me get healthier.

Well I am just heart broken at this time found out today that Dr Ahmed is no long here in Indianapolis Indiana anymore She was my Neurologist for the past 5 years after having 2 Strokes in 2010. She fought to find out what the cause of the strokes where from she never gave up and she literally saved my life She's the Doctor that knew my History without looking it up I just felt secure with Dr Ahmed by my side. Dr Ahmed patents should be truly blessed to have her as your Doctor I know I was.
