What People Say About Dr. Tarek Ahdab, MD
RecentMost Helpful

Dr. Ahdab is a very caring and a patient doctor. Last year I went to Dr. Ahdab with a very serious heart condition and now one year later I am back to normal. He is very thorough and takes whatever time is needed for each patient. He will not let you leave his office until you completely understand your prognosis and treatment.
