Four Stars

Dr. Ahmed is a psychiatrist, not a psychologist. He diagnoses and treats your medical condition(s) with prescriptions and referrals. If you are looking for psychotherapy, you need a counselor. It's just the way it is. He is not the only doctor that practices this way. Once you understand you'll more than likely need 2 doctors to treat your problem(s), you'll appreciate him a whole lot more.

Do not make an appointment

I have been a patient of Dr. Ahmed for about 2 years and I have finally had enough to leave and search for a new psychiatrist. For the first year of seeing him he didn't even remember my name or school from visit to visit. I find this incredible given I am a student at the college across the street from his office and during that year I was admitted to Snowden for inpatient care, yet this did not merit him remembering my name. When he suggested that I begin to come off my medication I objected, claiming I had been feeling more anxious than I had in months, his reasoning was that I didn't want to surrender his attention or admit I was in recovery. He humored me an increased my dosage. In my most recent and final visit I expressed feeling more anxious that normal, his response to this was a a chuckle and "well hopefully we wont be having another breakdown now will we?" as we approach the two year anniversary of my visit to Snowden. Dr. Ahmed is demeaning, disrespectful, arrogant, rude and i truly believe he does not care about his patients. Look elsewhere for psychiatric care.

One Star

If you are a fairly new patient of Dr. Ahmed's or thinking about scheduling an appointment with him, please broaden your horizons. This doctor sucks, bottom line. He's very cold and stale, there's very little communication in my 1 minute or 2 minute visits where all he does is look something up on a computer and says he'll see me in another month. Maybe for some, that's beneficial, but for someone who suffers from serious depression and other mental illnesses, this is complete trash. If you are taking the steps to battle your mental illnesses and you get stuck with a doctor like this, it's only asking for bad news. This at the end of the day is all opinion, but as an ex-patient of his, please take my advice and run away. This is personal motive for him, he's not about the people.

Five Stars

As a patient of Dr. Ahmed's, I have always found him attentive and helpful. He encouraged me to pursue a combination of medication and counseling, which I found very effective. I would gladly recommend him to my family and friends if they were ever in search of a psychiatrist.
