Dr. Ferhad Ahmad, MD

Psychiatrist

Professional statement

I specialize in treating patients with anxiety or Major Depressive Disorder (MDD). I believe mental health is a vital aspect of any individual's well-being, and I work to have every patient with depression be as symptom-free as possible and enjoy life to the fullest. I find Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) to be an important treatment modality as it allows me to work with my patients and tailor individual treatment modalities specific to their symptoms, and relieve their suffering from depression or another psychological disorder. I believe that TMS can be an instrument as alternative or additive to medications. I find a collaborative approach is the key to treatment success. I am a caring, calming practitioner and a good listener. I'm highly skilled in psychopharmacologic treatments and have a goal-oriented approach when working with patients. I appreciate helping patients understand their treatments and answering any questions they may have. Our practice is Northern California's leading provider of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), a highly effective, FDA-cleared, non-invasive therapy for patients who haven't responded to antidepressants and other treatments. We accept most major insurance plans. We have locations throughout Northern California.

I got lots of good vibes from the office staff and the doctor. Dr. Ahmad was great— friendly, knowledge, and caring. It was my first visit, as I just moved to the city (and was pretty sad to have to leavemy last doctor in DC), but I will certainly be going back!

Straight to the point and on time. Doesn't spend too much time getting to know the patient, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Scheduling the appointment and sending insurance information was hassle-free.
