One Star

Called to express concern with the treatment option I was provided which conflicted with researched information; Dr. Ahmed informed me that I should not educate myself on my condition and then hung up on me.

PPoor follow-up on prescriptions, inefficient message system

Staff very pleasant in office but poor at follow-up for prescriptions. Still trying to get my test strips. They have not responded to Medtronic prescription requests, and they called in the wrong Crestor dosage to my pharmacy. Trying to straighten this out, I constantly get a recording that says "This line is not for prescription issues." It's a Catch 22. Frustrated!

Bad experience

I saw this doctor in May 2009 for a pituitary tumour. I was scared and anxious. He had no compassion. His bedside manners were horrible. I refused to "drop my pants" when he asked me to. I would not let him examine my genitals. I will never go back. His knowledge in pituitary seem very poor.
