Dr. Ahmad is wonderful. I came in as an emergency patient with a ruptured globe. He is honest and explains everything in a very calming manner. The surgery was successful and I am healing well. He is a five star surgeon and I recommend him highly.

I was referred to Dr. Ahmad by an opthomologist due to an eye infection requiring surgery. Dr. Ahmad and his team put me at ease concerning the surgery, were compassionate, provided extensive information prior to the procedure and answered my questions. Dr. Ahmad personally follows up with patients and maintains open communication with patients. His team is excellent as well. I was very pleased with the results of my surgery and treatment. I highly recommend Dr. Ahmad.

Dr. Ahmad recently did corrective surgery near my eye. I was impressed with his patience in initially explaining the procedure in great detail. After the surgery he checked on me and called me the following day to answer questions and check on me. I was so impressed with his availability and care which is not often seen these days. I am still in the healing process, but I know from my previous dealings with him he will be there for me. He also has a great caring staff in Dina and Sabrina.

Dr. Ahmad is one of the most kind and compassionate doctors that I have had the opportunity to visit. Dr. Ahmad took the time to listen and learn about my symptoms. His staff was equally as friendly and helpful. Dr. Ahmad also took the time to provide outstanding referrals to other specialists and visited with those specialists prior to my visit to discuss my symptoms. I would recommend Dr. Ahmad wholeheartedly to anyone.

I personally found DR Ahmad to be very perfecinal, he definitely goes above and beyond to make you feel safe and comfortable. I personally have never had a DR that's willing to give you his personal number & say call me any time if you have any ? And I did & he answered EVERY time. I would highly recommend him to anyone who might be in need of a ophthalmologist or oculoplastic surgeon.

I dealt with almost 9 months of near constant tearing in my left eye, I consulted with 5 or 6 doctors (including 3 at UTSW medical school). I received different recommendationsi including cornea deriding, canthopexy. and possible DCR. I saw Dr Ahmad and he prescribed a special eye ointment as well as special eye drops. The tearing stopped within a week. I consider him a miracle doctor. His treatment made a huge, positive difference in my life. Also, Lillie, who works in the office is great.

Dr Ahmad is hands-down one of the best doctors from which I have received treatment. I was referred to him in Feb. 2017 when I suffered an orbital floor fracture that necessitated surgical repair. Dr Ahmad and his staff were patient, thorough and extremely kind during the evaluation process, appointments, surgery, and follow up. My eye is recovering nicely and I am grateful to Dr Ahmad for his excellent skill and care.

Dr. Ahmad is EXCELLENT! He spent a lot of time with me and never seemed rushed. He cared whether the procedure accomplished what I had expected and worked with me to make sure I was satisfied. he gave me his personal cell phone number after my surgery so I could contact him directly with problems. I would highly recommend him. My sister went to my appointments with me and she was extremely impressed too.
