Heather: Living Proof
I have been a patient of Dr. Ahmad for 10 years and I owe my life to him. I sought treatment with Dr. Ahmad as a young adult at a time when my life had spiraled out of control. I had been previously misdiagnosed and therefore, had no idea that all the emotions and problems I was facing were in part due to a mood disorder. Dr. Ahmad was quickly able to properly diagnose me and provide me with the talk therapy and medication I needed. Very soon after meeting Dr. Ahmad my life drastically started to improve because he was in my corner, guiding me and helping me make the right choices so I could build the beautiful life I have today. I owe everything I have today to Dr. Ahmad. I hold his advice and perspective in the highest regard and am forever grateful for how his expertise, advice, and knowledge saved my life.
“[Dr. Ahmad] makes sure to always be accessible and returns calls or prescription requests immediately. He truly cares and believes in what he is doing and IT SHOWS. He wants to see you get well and if you invest in your care with him you will get to where you ultimately want to be – I am living proof of that.”
I am so proud of the person I have become and the life I have built and I know in my heart none of it would have ever been possible without Dr. Ahmad. He makes sure to always be accessible and returns calls or prescription requests immediately. He truly cares and believes in what he is doing and IT SHOWS. He wants to see you get well and if you invest in your care with him you will get to where you ultimately want to be – I am living proof of that.
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 of occasions – 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.
