I saw Dr. Ahmed one time in my 6+ months of being a patient at Healthy Minds. He shook my hand and left. Every appointment I had was with Kristi the Nurse Practitioner who I can only assume hates her job based on her total apathy towards anything you say. I left a long review on a certain popular review site that I cannot name here in case you are looking for more information.

I will keep at this until no one sees this man anymore! Those recent good comments are fake and obviously made by someone who works there! He is a terrible doctor with zero compassion for a patient who is need of some kindness! He’s only in it for the money!

The services provided here can be met by a primary care physician. If you desire to see a psychiatrist , go elsewhere, they will have you see a nurse practitioner. She will ask little questions and write you a script, scooting you out the door. Any disagreement by the patient will be met with vitriole. Good luck on the quest for good quality psychiatric care. On a side note, he is known throughout Oakland county psychiatrist, interesting reviews. Do your research.

Avoid him at all cost. He doesn't care for his patients and has an awful bedside manner. He just wants to push medication and charge for his 5 minutes visits.

He saw a family member for like 3 months and never gave her a diagnose but he always prescribed medication. When I asked him (with my family member's permition)what was her diagnose and why he was giving her all the medication he throw me out from his office. She voiced that she was having suicidal thoughts and he dismissed her with no direction of where to go to seek support. He doesn't care for his patients and HE IS THE ONE THAT IS PUSHING THE MEDICATION TO THE PATIENTS. Avoid him at all cos

He saw a family member on referral one time and dismissed her. She voiced that she was in the midst of a mental health crisis and she was summarily dismissed, with no direction of where to go to seek support. In reading Dr. Ahmed's tone-deaf response to very similar reviews here he implies those leaving negative reviews are drug-seekers, which is an irresponsible response. We are filing complaint with the State Board, the insurance co's network department, and the referring doctor.

I waited months to get into him. I wrote down all the medications I’ve been on and my symptoms. He showed up 20 minutes late. He called me back, read through my symptoms and medicine; asked a few questions. Raised his eye brow in judgment when I spoke about my previous addiction issues... then less than ten minutes later tells me he isn’t qualified to see me. Gives me my money back and that’s it. Couldn’t refer me to anyone Bc I’m not a patient. I TOLD HIM I WAS IN THE MIDST OF A BREAKDOWN

Save your time, find a Dr. who actually cares to help people dispute the insurance they have. They dont take the time to evaluate you they ask name, phone number, address, and insurance info. and make a decision based on that if they are going to see you or not... what sense does that make..... my primary doctor recommend me to these guys and I will make sure he does NOT recommend them to anyone else because they will NOT help you and the staff is RUDE and MEAN when you ask questions

Very nice and caring psychiatrist. I like his detailed evaluation and great treatment plan. I trust him as my provider. I have referred several friends to him and they all like him a lot. His communication style is wonderful. I could not find a doctor like him in 20 years. Feel so grateful to him. He is always very busy. I think he is the best psychiatrist in Lansing area.

I have been seeing Dr Ahmed for over 12 years and I have great respect for him. He is very simply the best psychiatrist you can find. He saved my life and put me on right kind of medicine. Dealing with PTSD and depression was never easier for me. He provides excellent care with empathy and respect for his patients. I am so surprised to see some negative comments about him.I know he does not help people get addicted on prescription pills,
