Dr. Ahmad saves lives. I am 9 months Cancer free thanks to him.. He commands a large and loyal staff who provided the best possible care... This includes the nurses, aides and support at University Hospital. My experience with him and the staff was wonderful. I have the benefit of a year past the operation to see it all from a distance but it truly was a good experience to get the results.. Don't hesitate to put your life in Dr. Ahmads hands...

Dr. Ahmad has a stellar reputation within the medical profession, however, patients are treated like they are on an assembly line, & everyone receives the same care. Further, his bedside manner leaves much to be desired. Dismissive & rude are the terms that spring to mind. While in the hospital, you are largely left in the care of residents while he travels the country. For all I know, he's the best surgeon in the world at what he does, but personal contact with patients is definitely a weakness

Incredible doctor! From the moment you meet him, you realize how good he is. When I asked other doctors to recommend a surgeon for a Whipple, without hesitation, they would reply Dr Ahmad.
