- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

I have seen Dr Ahmad for such a long time and he is one of the best doctors I have ever visited. He is cautious but not over cautious. He takes time to understand what is going on and actually talk to you. I feel that he actually cares about me. My wife sees him also, along with a couple of my friends. Everyone thinks very highly of him.
I went to see Dr.Ahmad, the staff was pleasant, I had to wait in the examination room for 1 hour and 10 minutes. When I finally did see the Doctor, I told him I was upset about the wait, he responded, if I don't like it, then go somewhere else,I needed my medication so I stayed for the exam which consisted of using a stethoscope on me and asked a few questions,the whole thing took about five minutes, that is not my version of a physical, and it only cost 175 dollars. My advice, avoid this guy like the plague, his bedside manner was atrocious.
Dr. Ahmad has been my primary care physician for over 12 years. I would not hesitate to recomend Dr. Ahmad to anyone. He has always taken his time with me and listen to every word I say. His nurse Nancy has been with him for the whole 12 years as well and is as is as kind as Dr. Ahmad. Both Dr. Ahmad and Nancy are courteous and professional. I wouldn't think of changing to a different doctor.
