Worst doctor I've ever visited...

Very unprofessional atmosphere, my boyfriend compared as to if he were waiting for his oil to get changed while I was being seen. The nurse was very unhelpful and seemed a bit rude and when I met with Dr. Ahmed she was in a small room filling out OTHER patients files as I waited there to talk to her. After about 15 minutes she finally asked me why I was there... (also very rude about this) I explained and she said.. hmm... ok.. and I continued to sit right in front of her as she opened up another person's file and began writing in it until she finally wrote me an order to go get an X ray. HORRIBLE. NEVER GO HERE.

Amazing

Dr. Ahmed is an amazing doctor. I had a very rare disease when I walked into her doors, I did not even know anything about. She was kind and caring, and even talked with my boyfriend who was with me, and my mother who was over the phone in another state. She explained in detail what needed to be done, and made sure it was followed through after admitting me into the hospital. She even stopped in to see me while I was there. She is truly one of a kind, and I would tell any and everyone to go to her office. And not to worry about what it looks like from the outside, because it may be small, and not flashy, but I really think it is because she is all business - and really a kind, caring woman, and knowledgeable doctor.
