Extremely inefficient, don't use if you urgently need a CPAP.

We had to wait weeks for an initial visit for a sleep study evaluation. Then my wife had to wait another month for her first sleep study, which they canceled on the day of the study and rescheduled us for another appointment a month later. We did the sleep study and were told that we had to do a second study, a titration study. It took another month to get this done, then it took two weeks before we could discuss the results with Dr. Ahmed. He wrote a prescription for a CPAP and his office informed us that they would work with their medical supplier to get us a CPAP. Between this office and their supplier, Lincare Medical Supply; we have been waiting almost 4 weeks and we still do not have the CPAP. I wouldn't recommend this facility and it's supply partner if you need a CPAP.
Felt taken care of

I was here for lung test and then followed up with appointments with the doctor. I felt taken care of and he has asked for and rec'd tests on my lungs.
Terrible experience with this "doctor".

After 55 minutes total in the office, Ahmed strolled into the room and asked me why I was there. After a month trying to get in to see this pulmonary specialist, I realized that he had no info from my PCP. I explained that my PCP thought that I might have valley fever and I had asked to see a specialist. Was referred to Ahmed. In the meantime while on a trip to Colorado I suffered a DVT (deep vein thrombosis) and went to the emergency where they found that a clot from the DVT had traveled to my left lung which then became a PE (pulmonary embolism), a very serious condition. I was admitted to the hospital for two days so that they could get me stabilized, return home and see the pulmonary specialist. I had 8 sheets of information and a disk with cat scans, ultrasounds showing my condition. Ahmed breezed through the papers and stated that he had no information from my doctor so we would have to wait for that. Two times he rejected my offer of the disk, actually stating that he did not care about that, he was only concerned about the valley fever and only wanted to treat that. It does not take a mental giant to know that a pulmonary embolism is a critical condition and compared to valley fever is a much greater concern. Ahmed finally ended his "examination", gave me orders for blood work, an xray, and told me to come back in 6 to 8 weeks! Worthless!

He is a very rude to other doctor's and you have to be on your death bed before he will admit you at some hospitals. If he doesn't want to come to where you are to be admitted he sends you home after the buses quits running.
the most arrogant man on earth

My husband was admitted to Mercy Southwest and this man was assigned to him. He wont spend more than 2 min in the room and asked me on two occasions to Google the questions I asked about his condition. He is very arrogant and talks down on "regular" people. He is not concerned about whether this patient is improving or not and kept telling me the mortality rate is very high for his condition. After 5 days in the ICU with this man spending a total of about 6 minutes with my husband we requested a change and miraculously Dr. Pacheco -Garcia brought him back to life. Today he has joined us at home. If you love yourself or your loved one stay away from this man. I don't know if our ethnicity , religion , color or anything had to do with this horrible treatment but the Allah he worships would pay him for all his deeds.

THREE times this doctor stood me up. Each time I waited over an hour only to have an attendent tell me that Dr. Ahmed wasn't even in the office yet. The first two times I rescheduled. The third time I found a new doctor. The kicker? His office billed my insurance for a full office call even though I never saw the doctor!!!

His name may be on the building and he may be the owner of the group, but I have never seen him. If he stood in front of me today I couldn't tell you if it was him or not. He is never in the office and I have always been assigned to see someone else.

Elitist doctor on autopilot. Questions were never answered without attitude, and his demeanor was we were wasting his time.

I have been a patient for 15 years. Dr Ahmed and his staff have treated me and my family for years and has saved my grandmother when everyone else couldn't. His nurse practitioners are very nice and talk with Dr Ahmed all the time as far as my care has been concerned. I would recommend this office to everyone!
