Dr. Ahmad has been very preoccupied during every visit I have had with him. I have been a patient at this office for two years, and I have tried to give him the benefit of the doubt, but he continues to be distracted. He doesn't listen - but rushes in and out. When I do try to talk to him about concerns, he brushes me off. I have tried to talk to him in the past about health Issues and he has just dismissed me and left me feeling like I'm not very smart. On my last visit, he asked me If I had any concerns, and I just told him that I didn't because of past experiences. I will not be going back to his office. I have tried long enough and wish I would have changed physicians after my first visit.

Dr. Ahmad got me through a very difficult health issue. He is very thorough and has always explained everything to me. He answers my questions and I've been so pleased with my treatment.

I would recommend his procedure and medical competence. In the past, he has been impersonal and not listening to me. However, that behavior improves when my husband accompanies me, so far THIS VISIT he was recommendable.

Dr. Ahmad is knowledgeable & I never feel rushed when I have an appointment with him.

I felt like he had & quick answer for everything - told me at follow up that I was healthy the nothing wrong. No other explanation for my symptoms - No wanting to try other things just sent me on my way.

Dr. Ahmad was in my room for less than 2 minutes. Literally told me my labs looked great. Asked if the medication was working and then left. Wasted my time to travel to see him. Next time just call and tell me that information.

The appointment felt rushed. Again, I joined late due to a miscommunication as to appointment time. My email said 10:20am, the office had me down for 9am. The appt got started 10 mins late due to the office having to contact me.
Jul 22, 2020
I have already recommended multiple people to Dr. Ahmad's care and facility.

Dr. Ahmad is very great to work with and talk to about my hyperthyroidism. He's also comfortable and clear on what is known of the disease, as well as what is not known.
May 17, 2020
They've always been great to work with both in the check-ups, like this visit was, as well as when I was under treatment.

His nurse wasn't very personable or pleasant.
Jan 15, 2020
He was a great doctor - Very kind and reassuring. I really liked him, but I'd rather not go back to see him since my co-pay was too high.

Love Dr. Ahmad, he's best thyroid dr. I've had.
Sep 17, 2019
It takes me more time to find a parking spot then he takes in the room with me. I won't be going back.
Sep 17, 2019
I used to love him but I feel like he doesn't listen to me anymore. He brushes my concerns off and makes me feel like he knows better what I'm feeling then I do.

They kept getting my birth date wrong, caused problems @ the lab. Dr. wasn't thorough in my ultrasound. It took him 30 sec. I have now went back to my family practitioner for care of my thyroid etc.
