Trouble scheduling appointments

The staff does not return voice mails asking to schedule appointments. This has happened repeatedly over several years. Have given up on this office and will drive twice as far to see another doctor whose office responds quickly.

Great Rheumatologist

Dr. Ahmed is always available, helpful and incisive. I trust him to give me good advice and keep me up to date on my condition. He has a wonderful PA who is thorough and knowledgeable. The office staff is helpful and efficient. I recommend Dr. Ahmed highly.

Full Review Rating Breakdown

Dr. won't treat what he diagnosed.

Dr. Ahmed made a diagnosis and prescribed medication. When it came time for a refill he refused to fill the prescription saying that I should make an appointment with my primary care physician to treat the arthritis that I went to Ahmed for. I guess he made the $$ from the initial visits and tests and then couldn't be bothered. Wish I had gone to someone else in the first place.
