Dr. Ahmed Says:
"

Prescription drug abuse is on the rise ,therefore, I adhere to very strict criteria for prescribing Benzodiazepines and Stimulants. People seeking Benzodiazepines and stimulants without a valid reason are disappointed and get very angry and post negative comments pretending to be valid patients.

A very busy schedule at our clinic speaks for itself when it comes to patient satisfaction.
