I loved Dr Ahmed! He was thorough and compassionate. Spent time with me and answered all my questions. You can tell he has excellent training and is very knowledgeable about the kidneys. I am very glad I found him.

Horrible bedside manner! His appointments consist of coming in typing on the computer for 10 minutes, if you have questions he’s very dismissive and does not answer the actual question. His nurse practice Yvonne talks in circles. I’m no physician but it’s clear he doesn’t have it he has no idea what he’s doing which makes sense since he’s only been practicing for two years I will definitely be switching
