Saw Dr. Ahmari inpatient and she was very thorough and helpful. She is very kind and understanding. I already have an outside Linden Oaks provider but I would recommend her to anyone who doesn’t.

She missed diagnosis of hypothyroidism after I had a baby. For over a year, she continued to prescribe and change my depression meds. My list of symptoms were growing and health declining. Her suggestion visit after visit was to stay on the meds & give them a chance. After about a year and a half and doing my own research, I asked her if I could have hypothyroidism. She said it was possible (?!?!?!?). Why didn't she run those labs then?! New doctor discovered I was hypothyroid, not depressed!
