Dr. Ahmad was amazingly responsive and saw me 2x in the same day for my issues. [...] at the front desk was very polite and accommodating. [...] was also kind and on top of things. Later in the day when I returned [...] was very helpful and then ext day when I was having trouble getting a test scheduled quickly [...] made it happen. Dr. Ahmad was on top of my STAT labs and corresponded with me through my chart. I am so grateful to Dr. Ahmad and her amazing team for the kind, compassionate, and timely care they provided in my time of need.

10/18/2016
I scheduled this visit as a repeat visit of symptoms of back pain and distress, and hip pain. I'm waiting for a hip replacement with Dr. [...] My only problem is she described what is really a problem for me as mild symptoms of right sided bursitis- no it's pelvic, both sides and both legs and feet, and it's far from mild. [...] I feel she minimized my distress, but she did schedule help. I wouldn't recommend the practice because I have to wait 1-2 weeks to see her or have to see someone else who isn't familiar with my problem. However, the care is excellent, and she is highly qualified and personable.

07/26/2016
She's not really very good at explaining things and I don't feel confident that she is giving me good information as she has more than once given me WRONG information so I often do not trust what she is saying. But I really like her assistant [...] and I like the office and it's pretty easy to get an appointment and get referrals so I keep coming back. I tend to get better answers from her when I bring my husband and I don't like that she is more respectful to a man - that seems counterproductive.

03/18/2016
She diagnosed what she heard of my symptoms as bursitis of the knee and thoracic area. I never indicated there was pain in my knee. She ordered a blood test I requested, and 3 x-rays […] Dr. Ahmad did refer me for PT. [...] The pt tested me for bursitis, and said instead, I had inflammation of nerves in the area of my pelvis [...] I requested a referral for hip replacement, which Dr. Ahmad and I had discussed […] I don't think the time allotted was enough for the communication between Dr. Ahmad and me to be clear, because this is a complex problem. However, seeing the pt and getting an appt.with an orthopedic Dr. has been great.
