Dr. Syed M Ahmed has the following 2 specialties
A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.
A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

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.

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.

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.
