Dr. Ahmed immediately diagnosed and treated my severe asthma which I developed in my mid 50's. His treatment has allowed me to return to a regular work schedule. After multiple specialists couldn't diagnose my condition, including another pulmonologist who I saw the day before Dr. Ahmed. Excellent Dr.
