Could live without her

Dr. Ahmed has been a saving grace in my life. I firmly believe I'd be disabled without her. She diagnosed my RA, found the right combination of drugs to keep me stable and active and the staff is great. Never had to wait more than 15 minutes to get in for my appointment. And it is convenient to have my blood drawn right at the office. Love this place!

TWO MONTHS TO GET AN APPT!!

Haven't been to a doctor yet, and I'm sure they are wonderful, but seriously, two months to get an appt. for new patients. That is a little extreme. I might be better off driving a bit to see a doctor sooner!

I really enjoyed how Dr. Ahmed takes the time in getting to know you. Tells you exactly what is going on, what will she do, and what she expects. She will give you the good and the bad of the the results, so that you won't be surprised if the results are what she expected. The appointments might be hard to get, but she is worth the wait.
