      I would avoid this provider in my view like the plague. He would not even see me after reviewing my condition and expressed that I need to seek treatment elsewhere. Well then where? I am not questioning his skills, I am in question of his motivation.
      in Holt, MI |
      After talking to two different office staff members and giving them quite a bit of information (they each asked different questions and I had to start the process all over with the second), I received a call from the staff that said they came in to a list of people to call and tell them that Dr. Ahmed recommended that I seek treatment elsewhere. I am extremely disappointed it took three weeks and gathering all sorts of insurance information on me to find that out.

      My experience with this doctor was through the VA. Got maybe 5 minutes per appointment. He believes that if you have tremors to the point of being unable to write your name it is an acceptable side effect from the medications. I could also barely understand him and he didnt bother explaining anything

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Ahmed's Care Philosophy

      I believe that mental illness is just like physical illness and we need to treat mental illnesses with medication and psychotherapy.People should not look down on mental illness. Mentally ill people need your compasssion and not your prejudice.Derogatory terms for mental illness should not be used when referring to a person with mental illness.
