Patient Comments (1)
My husband was a patient of Dr Ahmed. I never regret anything in my life as much as a decision to choose him. The treatments doctor recommended didn't work And my husband's condition was worsening and in this critical time doctor just went on vacation for several weeks! He should have insisted on my husband being admitted to clinical studies at UIC when they turned him down. After that my husband wasn't given chemo that could prolong his life!
