Patient Reviews
Sep 17, 2022
I have been with Dr Ahmad for at least 20 years. He has been my psychiatrist and trusted advocate in these many past years. He really knows what works and does not, understanding the circumstances as well as the deep cause of underlying symptoms in my personal case. He is a believer that meds alone are not the solution, but can stabilize to take you through the process of healing with talk/ group therapy. In the past years and still I deeply trust his judgment on the dose and choice of meds knowing he will only recommend what is necessary and will be sure he follows up and follows through making sure the meds are a complementary combination. For me and my family he has made an amazing impact on looking at pharmaceuticals as well as he is of great knowledge about past ones and most recent ones. Always answers questions. I am thankful for all his hard intentional work. Punctual with refills on prescriptions.
