“Dr. Ahmad is the whole package.”
Susan, NYC

Susan, now 66, was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder at the age of 19. She started seeing Dr. Ahmad four years ago when her depressive states became unbearable. Dr. Ahmad helped control these states and Susan now knows that when they happen, they are temporary. Additionally, thanks to Dr. Ahmad’s attention to her physical well being, Susan feels great and is productive in her everyday life. As she puts it, he’s the “whole package.”

 

          

 

“Under Dr. Ahmad’s care, Susan is never out of sight.”
Ray, Susan's husband, NYC

Under Dr. Ahmad’s care, Susan’s husband Ray noticed a dramatic change in her depressive states, describing them as milder and shorter. He appreciates Dr. Ahmad’s holistic approach, specifically his awareness of Susan’s physical health, the involvement of her family and outside support system and his attention to what is happening in the lives of her loved ones. As Ray puts it, with Dr. Ahmad, “Susan is never out of sight.”

 

“Dr. Ahmad is, without a doubt, one of the most talented and approachable physicians with whom I have had the pleasure of working.”
Lina, NYC

Dr. Ahmad is, without a doubt, one of the most talented and approachable physicians with whom I have had the pleasure of working. I began to see him approximately two years ago, as I was experiencing a panoply of symptoms including, but not limited to, a heightened sense of anxiety. As we worked through the issues week by week – through a combination of medicine and therapy – he helped me to make sense of what I was experiencing. Moreover, he provided me with an analytical framework to understand what I was experiencing (in a lay sense) and to develop, with him, tools to deal with the same.

I would recommend Dr. Ahmad to anyone who seeks help. His breadth of medical knowledge, and his application of it, are truly impressive. His personal style is warm and compassionate. His office is inviting. And, one never feels rushed during sessions. Equally commendable is the fact that Dr. Ahmad never fails to return one’s calls or emails in a very prompt manner. I have reached out to him on a number ofoccasions – whether during the week or on weekends – and he always comes through. One can unequivocally rely on him.

Perhaps one of the things I most appreciate is Dr. Ahmad’s general “approach” to treatment. At core, he always makes sure to treat you as a whole person – rather than just a set of symptoms. His is a very effective “mind-body” approach to treatment.

“We have seen many psychiatrists, but we have never met such dedication.”
Shaindy, NYC

Dear Dr. Ahmad:

I cannot thank you enough for all you are doing for us (accommodating the appointment time, inquiring on speech therapist, remedying ________with the proper psychotherapy, and above all — really trying to make a difference in our lives).We will remember to make up for it next week (Purim Shalach Monos). We have seen many psychiatrists, but we have never met such dedication.

“Accord yourself the respect of seeing Dr. Ahmad.  He is a doctor who understands your disorder like no other doctor you will meet, and can help you live the life you deserve.”
M. W., Marblehead, MA

Dr. Ahmad has a unique competency in treating patients with bipolar disorder.  As anyone knows who suffers from it, bipolar disorder is devastating, with impact to one’s family, career, and hobbies.  There is no “cure” and most of us struggle with a “cocktail” of different medications that never quite work effectively.  One of the biggest challenges is finding a psychiatrist who understands the disorder, the psychopharmacology, and the delicate balance between biology and upbringing.  Dr. Ahmad is that rare individual.

Dr. Ahmad draws on deep clinical experience, and approaches things with confidence-inspiring leadership, a sense of humor, and hopefulness.  I saw Dr. Ahmad after working with different doctors for 20+ years.  In one session I realized that Dr. Ahmad knew exactly what I was dealing with.  In weeks I had a whole new perspective on my disorder, and hope.  In months we had recalibrated my meds, and I had a framework to start improving things in my marriage and my life.  Accord yourself the respect of seeing Dr. Ahmad.  He is a doctor who understands your disorder like no other doctor you will meet, and can help you live the life you deserve.

“I thought it would be challenging and extremely difficult to adopt a holistic approach to my health care after decades of self-destructive eating habits and disinterest in food as a healing power. Under Dr. Ahmad’s supervision I experienced astonishing results: the transformation was immediate and impactful in powerful, measurable, life-affirming ways.”
K. A. Taylor, NYC

Why did you seek help:

I initially sought help with Dr. Ahmad for psychiatric purposes. His keen intelligence and ability to analyze me properly from the first session gave me the confidence to pursue therapy in weekly sessions. Whilst immersed in treatment, Dr. Ahmad began progressive healing work with me through nutritional therapy. I thought it would be challenging and extremely difficult to adopt a holistic approach to my health care after decades of self-destructive eating habits and disinterest in food as a healing power. Under his supervision I experienced astonishing results: the transformation was immediate and impactful in powerful, measurable, life-affirming ways.

Why did you select Dr. Ahmad versus other doctors? What makes him stand apart?

I engaged in therapy and nutritional healing many times in my past but was unable to achieve continuity or success with other practitioners. Dr. Ahmad has a laser-like focus and listens intently to what is revealed in each session; more importantly, he has the remarkable ability to recall key elements from prior sessions without consulting his notes. This rapt attention culminates in extraordinary breakthroughs in almost every session. I have been graced with epiphanies and sudden resolution on issues that were unresolved for decades. He elucidates difficult concepts with ease and clarity so that full comprehension of everything we undertake is achieved.

How has Dr. Ahmad helped you with your health goals?

Working with Dr. Ahmad has stimulated a personal growth cycle which has resulted in my ability to live a more authentic and inspired life. He excels in illustrating direct pathways necessary to embark upon a lifestyle shift. He is supportive throughout the process, from identifying crucial first-steps through to goal achievement and maintenance. Once the initial exhilaration of the achieved goalwanes, he offers clearly defined and easy-to-adopt ways to sustain the work undertaken.

Additional Feedback

My work with Dr. Ahmad has led to a veritable rebirth of my personal life – from learning to care for and heal myself through nutrition, nutritional supplements and fitness – to sourcing the inner strength and courage to live a healthy, joyful, authentic and fulfilling life.

“I would highly recommend Dr. Ahmad to any patient who needs and wants help because he treats and provides his patients both mind and body as one. As the mathematical paradigm -the whole is equal to the sum of its parts.”
Howard C., NYC

I feel very fortunate to have been referred to Dr. Ahmad just about 5 years ago when my life became insurmountable with a host of psychological, emotional and physical symptoms, such as fear, anxiety, depression, extreme weight gain, and a lot of uncertainty, etc. It was Dr. Ahmad who assured me that he would help me to help myself regain a functional life again, but he needed my help to do so. With Dr. Ahmad’s broad and vast comprehensive knowledge ( a combination of medical, worldly, and practical information), he patiently and accurately diagnosed me and adjusted my medication accordingly to my needs of my individual diagnosis. I am extremely fortunate as well as extremely grateful to Dr. Ahmad because today, I can honestly say that, I am in a totally much better place then where I was when we first met and he continues to help me, so as long, as I help him.

I would highly recommend Dr. Ahmad to any patient who needs and wants help because he treats and provides his patients both mind and body as one. As the mathematical paradigm -the whole is equal to the sum of its parts. In addition, one can expect both professionalism and equally important is his care and concern for each individual patient. Dr. Ahmad always returns all you calls and reassuringly calls you to check in on you in times of need. I THANK YOU VERY, VERY MUCH, Dr. Ahmad, for I am FOREVER GRATEFUL for you and all that you have done and continue to do for me.
