Self-verified patient of Dr. Irshad Ahmed - Posted on February 1st, 2010
I have been with Dr. Amed for almost 4 years. I have found him to be very caring and will not give up on a problem until the answer is found and treatment is complete. His "bedside manner" is well above any physician I have seen in the past 30 years. When illness forced my hospitalization, he did all he could to make my stay as short as possible and be able to reach the correct Dx. find the corret medication and treatments that were needed.I would recommend him to anyone in need of a primary care physician, young or old.The one minor problem I have encountered is availability in his private practice office. Due to commitments to the local hospital, it limits the hours available to his private practice. However, if he feels a patient needs to be seen immediately, he will make himself available. Most physicians do not have that level of caring for their patients and families.
