Patient Comments (1)
in Parsippany, NJ |
I drove in rush hour traffic from Morris County to Hackensack, NJ. I was on time for my 6 pm appointment but the doctor was not...I was furious. I wanted to change doctor asap. Then I was finally called in to see Dr. Ahmad, my first time. He is genuinely a nice guy that knows his stuff. I will go back despite the wait time because of the psychiatric care I will receive in return. He is really great.
