Specialties

Dr. Sheikh I Ahmed has the following 1 specialty

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

I went to this doctor with flu symptoms. He said he didn't know what's wrong and sent me away. Turns out I was pregnant.

This is one of the worst general practitioner sites I have ever been. I had an appointment all set for 11AM and when I walked in the waiting room was completely filled. It took more than 2 hours to be seen by the PA. I should mention that this appointment was for something as simple as going over blood work results. this is something that most doctors will just talk to the patient over the phone if a visit is not warranted. However this office insists that the patient come in for blood work, probably to get more insurance compensation. I HAD TO WAIT OVER 2 HOURS TO GO OVER BLOOD WORK RESULTS.I also had an appointment earlier this year after I had been in a car accident and I was set on my way after they prescribed pain pills. I returned a month later because I could not tolerate the pain pills. It was at this time they mentioned something about physical therapy. THEY FORGOT TO GIVE ME A PHYSICAL THERAPY REFERRAL AFTER MY CAR ACCIDENT.I AM SWITCHING DOCTORS AND I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS GP TO MY WORST ENEMY.

I had to wait a long time, over an hour, to see the doctor. Staff there was very unprofessional and when I finally saw Dr. Ahmed, he spent less than 3 minutes with me, was in a rush, and gave me the wrong diagnosis. I got sicker thereafter and had to go to another doctor. Never going back to this place again.

I go to the Meriden office on a regular basis. Everyone in the office has always been great to me including the doctor. The only big problem is the wait sometimes. Making an appointment means nothing you might as well just walk-in. It gets so, so busy I have waited as long as an hour and a half. On those visits the Dr. Ahmed usually is overwhelmed so time spent with him is very limited.
