Self-verified patient of Dr. Ahmad Almai - Posted on April 9th, 2011
This Dr. has the most discusting attitude towards care of patients. He not only went bankrupt on his practict and closed it without giving us enough notice, he refused to release my childs records so he can obtain good medical care from another good Dr. who is unbelievable. He took my child off of some medications and now my son is better. I wonder if Dr. Almai was keeping my son ill to get money.STAY AWAY FROM THIS DR. !!!!!!!
Self-verified patient of Dr. Ahmad Almai - Posted on December 11th, 2008
I had Dr. Almai while taking part in a study at the yale anxiety clinic in 1998. I had agoraphobia for 12 years at that point. I learned so much from him as far as cognitive behavior therapy and am still on Zoloft 11 years later. I am no longer housebound. I have a job, can drive, can go out alone, can bring my children where they need to go... can go in stores, restaurants.. I can never thank Dr. Almai enough for making it clear to me that it was now up to me... The meds were doing their job.. I knew the breathing techniques... and that the only thing holding me back was me. Thank you Dr. Almai.
