When I met with Dr. Ahmed for the first time, he looked at his computer and did not greet either me or my significant other. Did not get up, shake our hands or even say hi. He took a personal phone call during the appt. Dr. Ahmed thinks it's okay to stop Ambien and Xanax cold turkey at the same time. When my significant other questioned him on the safety of stopping both and the fact that appointments are 10 minutes, Dr. Ahmed got up out of his chair, opened the door and told us to 'get out.'

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.
in Haslett, MI |
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
