I wanted to take a minute and thank Dr Ahmad for everything he did in helping my dad. He went above and beyond to see that his care while in the hospital was second to none. I highly recommend him and his friendly staff.

Wonderful caring professional physician and staff. Both husband and I have been seeing him for years. Never had any problems with incorrect billing. (Infact, he helped by providing me with major discounts when I was uninsured....other providers would do that.)

I WOULD NEVER GO TO HIM AGAIN, HE PLACED A PACEMAKER IN JULY 31, 2013 , AND TOLD MY HUSBAND AND FAMILY THAT EVERYTHING WENT GOOD, BUT ALSO SAID HE PLACED 2 STENTS. WHICH IN DECEMBER 17, 2018 I WENT TO THE HOSPITAL AND HAD A EMERGENCY CATH, I FOUND OUT I HAD NO STENTS, BUT HE CHARGED MY INSURANCE FOR THEM. AND IT'S ON MY MEDICAL RECORD THAT HE PLACED 2 STENTS. SO WRONG. NEEDLESS TO SAY I'VE CHANGED HEART DOCTORS.
