Dr Yasir Amad saw me for s year. He then had no problem prescribing pills but refused to help me get medicinal MJ. He pretended that never happened. he became judgemental did not help and billed me then lied about "evaluating me" they charged ahead of time and asked for cash twice before appointment. Once in his office he refused participation. Hackensack Meridisn Health denied assistance in refunding.

My wife has been a patient of Doctor Ahmad for a couple of years now. I have noticed a regression in her behavior and mental health under his care. Issues have exacerbated in the past few months. She has become extremely frustrated and he is not very responsive to her concerns.

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.
