Don't waste your time

I too had a horrible experience with Dr. Ahmed. He did not have his facts correct about history or medication. I had to correct him several times. Extremely narcisisstic. He spent far more time talking about himself than talking about my son. Made assumptions without getting all the facts. He talked down to me throughout the entire appointment. I will definitely be taking my son elsewhere. What a complete waste of time.

Hello?

From the start I felt that I was not being listened to & felt talked down to. He would ask a question and then cut me off with his own answer. Guess I wasnt answering quick enough. I am surprised if he would even remember my name if it wasnt in front of him, several visits I had to remind him of signifgant details of myself. The final straw was when he started crossing an etichal boundry of religious suggestions for treatment. Unfortuntly if you choose to change Dr.'s you cannot switch to another person in that facility. Seriously! A couple side notes, Reception is AWFUL & RUDE! Make sure you have them print your appointment for you to have proof of the time scheduled so you dont get charged for an appointment scheduled at a different time.I DO NOT feel that he has enough experience to work with adults.
