Wonderful doctor

Dr. Ahmad has amazing bedside manners. He was funny, charming, reassuring. He quickly made the right diagnosis and promptly came up with the right treatment. I started feeling better in just a few days. I would highly reccomend this doctor to anybody.

did not feel he was well informed about my condition

I felt Dr.Ahmad was disinterested in finding the best therapy for me but took the approach of lets prescribe the strongest antibiotic that will take care of any bacteria that may cost those symptoms. I got very sick from the prescribed antibiotic and had to pay for another antibiotic prescription. In his defense I like to ad that a Patient First environment is fostering this medical approach and I should find a good family practice where hopefully Dr's. Have more time to develop a relationship with their patient.
