Verified Patient Reviews
Staff was friendly. Use of tablet for paperwork was great. Dr. Ah san is a straight shooter who doesn't order unnecessary tests
I have already scheduled my next appointment with him. Very down to earth and highly intelligent.
He was kind and informative! The visit was great. I feel much better mentally and physically after seeing him.
He listens and reacts to what you feel.
Thank god for such a carrying divot and staff!!! The doctor is wonderful and professional and I feel so blessed to have found this place. I haven't been this excited about a doctor for years!
The staff from the receptionist to the physician was very professional...from the beginning to end.
With out word best dr ever i am so thankfull i had many years suffering anxiety and panic atacks he is helping me out of this hell help me yo enjoy my life and my family he makes me fell so good
I liked the fact that he listened to me, I felt like I had a lot of previous history that he needed to know about and he gave me the time to tell him. I never felt he was in a hurry to get to the next patient. I was satisfied with his plan.
Dr Ahsan is absolutely awesome. I have been incorrectly diagnosed with Epilepsy for over 10 years, essentially because I had good insurance and they would pay for the constant MRI'S and ambulatory EEG'S. Dr Ahsan tells you the TRUTH, along with an excellent bedside manner. He actually cares about his patients wellbing, is sympathetic, compassionate, and LISTENS. he is there to ACtually help-especially single mothers going thru anxiety and stress. This Dr is AWESOME!!!
I have had a couple neurologists before for a condition I've had for years. I liked the fact that he would not assume their diagnosis correct without doing his own consultation. He's funny too! And laid back. His coworker was incredibly friendly as well. It was a good visit.
Professional and knowledgeable. Too soon to tell
I thought he was very professional and he will be my daughters doctor
Changed all my meds and wasn't very forthcoming
He was very through.
This is the first doctor that i have ever been to that does not check any vitals. He sit's down in the chair and have you tell him whats been going on with you, and while your talking, he is writing down something then he hands you a prescription and tell you to take that. He never try and diagnose you or try to figure out the problem, all he does is have you trying different medication. I would never recommend him for anyone.
Very informative and scheduled scans right away to find the issue. Feel very confident we will find an answer to my condition.
This was a disappointment. I was attempting to ignore the prior reviews but they are on point. He has a disorganized room full of patient records-openly displayed to read if one was so inclined as they were all stacked in piles on the exam table. I sat in a chair in the exam room cluttered with patient records. He spoke with me less than 10 minutes, did not examine me at all, no vitals nothing. Took a brief history, cut off my conversation about crucial symptoms that brought me to his office. He asked if I was taking medications did not even ask why I was taking them. Just to mention that one is a pain control medicine . I am a drug minimalist so it struck me odd that he did not ask any questions in this day and age. I had a list of RX with exact dosages with my symptoms listed and he never looked at it. All of these are serious medications and any MD treating a person for the 1st time and especially a Neurologist should be looking into the reason for the RX's and if they were effective but how could he as he did not examine me. Only a few questions and then He wrote two RX and that was it. He requires you to sign a release to check your credit or he will not see you. Really I have never seen such a thing but I was already there and did not want to cancel as he also has a full pay for cancellations policy so he was going to get my money regardless. However having found out what I did I wish I did not see him and went to another MD as now I will have to do so anyway.
He is very pleasing and kind, very informative. I would definitely recommend him to others and my friends.
Dr. Ahsan is an excellent doctor who truly cares about his patients. He is the only doctor i have found that cares about your well being and not about how much is in his pocket. I have been to numerous neurologists in the area, with most of them you have to leave a message when calling, with Dr. Ahsan on the other hand I don't need to worry, he personally answers emergency calls during and after hours. Knowing that you can get a hold of a doctor when needed, makes all the difference in the world. His new front office staff has been extremely friendly and helpful whenever needed, from the moment you walk in, you feel like you are actually welcome. Highly recommended.
He eas very nice
I really liked Dr. Ahsan. He took the time to listen and is very knowledgeable in helping get rid of migraines.
Seemed like he ignored a lot of facts that may have been beneficial to the diagnosis. Not sure why they were forcing to get social security numbers from patients. Told me they'll schedule a follow up to get screened but never attempted. Wouldn't give me a receipt for the charges I incurred.
I thought he was very honest and up front with the information given!
My appointment with Dr. Ahsan was great. He was caring, listened to my concerns, and wanted to get to know me as an individual. I felt very comfortable with his diagnosis. I would definitely recommend him to others. The wait time was almost nothing, and the office staff was very nice and helpful.
The doctor seemed competent and friendly.
Great staff and service but lots of people visiting doctor Dr. Ahsan so arrive at least 30 minutes before your appointment also kinda of hard to find the place specially since there is no big sign outside but just on the door which is small.
Dr.Ahsan is great.very caring and knowledgable.staff is awesome.wasted so much time with other neurologist.dont waste time...if in pain or find other drs. confusing.make appointment NOW!
Dr Ahsan really listens and actually helps!!
It was ok very straight to the point in and out within ten minutes
Will never go back again. Tell you one thing and does another...
He seems like a very nice person.
The Dr. Was very friendly, and so were the staff.
Nice, informative and professional!!!!
Short and straight to the point, I will be returning. Also very nice and encouraging in general.
I like the fact that he wants to run test before he begins his treatment and diagnostics plan.
I've seen him before, he's easy to talk to and treats your symptoms and adjusts dose accordingly. Some docs make you suffer, he is reasonable. Keep gong back to get best benefit. I wish I came back sooner. I wouldn't have suffered as long. TU Doc
We are very and pleased.
Very pleasant staff. He went over my concerns and told me the best things he could do for me. I was in and out in no time.
Very calming n conservative
I felt at ease immediately, Dr.Ahsan was very knowledgeable and helpful in explains everything to me.
He is a very honest physician that cares. Glad I found him.
You can tell he genuinely cares about the patient and not the money or health insurance bs.
I thought the visit with Dr. Ahsan went very well. He was very understanding of my son's neurological issues and very knowledgeable about his condition. I would highly recommend him to others needing neurological services.
I've had headaches daily for the last 4 months, saw three specialists, had multiple CT scans and nothing was working. Went to see Dr. Ahsan one time and he gave me two medicines that have eliminated my headaches totally! I'm simply amazed! I highly recommend him!
I was very pleased with his honesty. He took the time to really hear my complaints and was very clear on answering all my questions.
He cares about patients more than anything else, and he advises and prescribes based on what is important to YOU not to him or other pharmaceutical companies. He's approachable and open, and he takes the time to explain his recommendations in a way you can understand.
Omg his office assistant was the best. I was in tears because I have a nerve condition and I am in severe pain always. The doctor understood and the office manager gave me a hug and wiped my tears away and have me water. She made me feel so good and told me I was going to be OK. I have never had anyone show compassion. I was late and she still made arrangements for me to be seen. The doctor was nice and wants to help me. I was about to give up because I been searching for help and other doctors I been to didn't care. But this doctor cares. Thank you so much.
never again he asked very quick very rude questions ran no test and wrote me 3 different prescriptions and told me to come back in a month very rude no bedside manner I will never go back
I have recently moved to Georgia and had a brain bleed. After searching high and low for a neurologist I ran across Dr Jawaid Ahsan MD. I had been suffering from migraine headaches that would cause me to be bound to the bed for most of the day. Upon entering his office my headache was a 10 out of a 10 and I had no idea that what I was about to experience would cause my headache to completely go away. Dr Ahsan treated me like family and appeared very concerned about my physical health as well as my mental health. He spoke with me as if I was very important to him. Although we used no pain medication in the office environment, I left his presence feeling no pain in my head at all. I love this guy and will return always on my schedule visits.
Showed concerned in my issues and interesting in finding the root of the problem.
Dr Ahsan was fantastic! First time seeing him and needed a quick visit with someone close. He is a very intelligent, thorough, and caring doctor! You can tell he really does care about his patients and isn't just trying to recommend medicine or procedures to squeeze money out of them or insurance for no reason. My favorite thing was that he has a great personality and sense of humor when appropriate. The office was a bit hard to find for a first timer but I will definitely go back to Dr Ahsan with any future follow up or neuro needs!
I didn't like him during the appointment because he spent more time talking with my wife (who later explained that it was because my conversation was jumping all over the place while she was able to answer specific questions with examples of problems I was having), but he did order tests to try to get to the root of the problems and called with results quickly afterwards, so I'm beginning to like him more. My wife, on the other hand, found him professional, knowledgeable and communicative from he beginning.
Dr. Ahsan seems to be very arrogant and uncaring. My daughter has severe headaches very often. He kept asking her what she wanted from him. Then he prescribed two medicines that she has been on before and said if they didn't help to get anther medicine that he was prescribing and bring back to his office and the would give it to her in and injection in her head. The insurance wouldn't pay for the medicine because they said that her doctor had to provide the medicine in his office. It's been a very frustrating experience trying to work with Dr. Ahsan.
He cares about his patients. He listens and actually takes in and wants to know what you have to say. When you choose not to do what he advises, he doesn't discard you and your needs. Instead, he provides an alternative treatment plan. I like that the doctor works with you and not just for you.
Dr. Jawaid Ahsan was great! He made me feel very comfortable to get to know him. I felt like I was being heard.
Dr. Ahasan was amazing and right on with his recommendations. I enjoyed the conversation and felt that he truly listened to me. He complimented me on my plan for my health. That meant the world to me! Great doctor!
We love this doctor. He is so kind and understanding. I really feel like he wanted to help our family.
I will say the staff was very nice and seemed very knowledgable. But as for the doctor? Absolutely terrible. I had a grand mal seizure and found Dr Ahsan because he had the earliest opening. When I went to see him, he did not want to see hospital records from my ER visit post seizure, he didn't ask any past history questions, and while I was describing a past experience he cut me short and said "no further questions, see you tomorrow". He did not seem the least bit interested in me as his patient. The following day I came back for an EEG and while reviewing the results he said "okay so this shows that it will get my name off the hook if anything else happens". EXTREMELY unassurring and inappropriate from a professional stand point!! I was appalled. I would NOT recommend this doctor by ANY means. I will be going to see another neurologist that with hopefully show more care and concern than this man did.
Excellent. I was taken back quickly and the doc knew what I needed and listened and asked many questions to ensure he had it correct.
Very personable and listens.
Excellent service provided, he was hospitable and very knowledgeable. Made me feel very comfortable, the most important part was he spent the time with me to talk to me about what was going on and my problem. He even did a test that was not required just for my assurance. Very professional and i highly recommend him!
He's very informative, and funny
Dr. Ahsan was awesome! My wife had a seizure Monday night, her first, and the ER recommended a Neurologist visit before clearing her to return to work. Dr. Ahsan not only saw us without insurance, but he was available sooner than any other Neurologist within 50 miles, and his prices were cheaper. He was very polite and asked many questions, and while he gave us the option of medication, did not recommend we do so at this time. He understood our need to return to work and squeezed in an EEG for her the same day, even though it meant he and his staff wound up staying past office hours to complete it. His pricing for the procedure was also 1/3 what Kennestone and other neurologists were wanting to charge. I cannot recommend him enough! There was a bit of a wait time initially, but I would attribute this to his high involvement with patients, as he was on the phone with a few "emergency calls" from patients while we were waiting. He saw us as soon as he was available and did not rush through our appointment, try to hurry us, or even check his watch a single time.
The office staff were very pleasant and he made my nervous daughter feel very at ease.
Jawaid is an excellent doctor professionally and personally. I already had 2 visits and both were excellent where he really spent time and methodically diagnosis the disease. He recommended B12 shots for my numbness issue which my primary care doctor should have done at first place by looking at my B12 levels. That is really working and I see a lot of improvement.
Dr. Ahsan is an amazing doctor. He is very knowledgeable and he really cares about improving the quality of life for of his patients. He takes his time and answers and questions the patient has. I really appreciate all of his help and I value the work that he is doing.
I have migraines once or twice a month. I hate taking pills, they don't usually work and then I have to miss work and feel groggy all day. I decided to let Dr. Ahsan inject a tiny amount of steroid and lidocaine into the nerve around my migraine. It was gone within 10 minutes and it has not come back. Will definitely recommend this doctor. I am an RN so I am pretty skeptical about this kind of thing, but I did some research and it turns out this is a little known therapy that has been proven effective.
Very in encouraging and informative. Look forward to my one-month follow-up appointment.
The actual office is very cluttered, staff was unprepared for my visit, and one staff member was very rude. Doctor had no real bedside manner, lack of empathy, came off a little rude himself. He was also quite short with us. On the other side one staff member was very sweet and knew their job. Went out of their way to accommodate us. Overall I would not recommend this doctor.
Pleased with my visit. Felt comfortable enough to talk to Dr.Ahsan without feeling like my thoughts about my health are not important to him. He listened and was very patient!
I had a severe migraine for the last 10 days straight. I tried everything I could think of but nothing worked. Even went the hospital twice. Still no help! So I found Dr. Jawaid Ahsan on Zoc Doc and I couldn't be anymore satisfied. My very first appointment with him was great. I walked in with so much pain and walked out with the biggest smile on my face. Pain free!!!!!!! Thanks agin Dr. Jawaid Ahsan
My daughter was literally in office 5 minutes referred to neur for headaches. He never looked at her said you have migraine now here is 2 prescriptions. Should you ask some health questions before prescribing any meds.
For the past 13 years, I have worked as an ER Registered Nurse. I had developed a severe tremor which caused me to be unable to perform IVs, catheters, and barely write legibly. It ended my nursing career. I went to another movement clinic where thousands of dollars of testing was performed, and my symptoms did not significantly improve.I saw Dr. Ahsan once, and he prescribed medication that has changed my life. I will have no problem performing my job duties and I can't wait to get back to work! Thank you Dr. Ahsan!
I brought my brother who has a traumatic brain injury and a severe movement disorder to this doctor. We have spent thousands of dollars on multiple CTs, MRIs, and irradiated and medicated for years with little effect. After his first visit with this doctor last week, my brother's tremor has markedly improved and he is significantly more alert and awake during the day. We will continue to see this doctor for all of his neurological care.
Dr Ahsan was very friendly and nice. He has a much bigger vision than most other doctors I have seen and that really helped me with my condition.
Dr. Ahsan did a great job of examining me and making sure that I tested out ok after a recent head injury. I would definitely recommend him to anyone.
He was very aware of what was going on with me once I told him my symptoms. He knew exactly what my treatment should be and I look forward to the follow-up appointment.
This man is an amazing doctor!! I have been to so many doctors with not a lot of relief. Right away Dr. Ahsan knew what questions to ask to get to the root of the problem. He dug into issues I didn't know I was having and was able to diagnose the actual cause of a lot of my problems, instead of just sending me for more tests as others doctors had done. I was convulsing and thought I was having seizures, migraines, sleeplessness, a hard time breathing, and it was all being caused from panic attacks. All the other doctors I went to, kept running me around in circles and were not able to find the actual problem. I highly, highly recommend! He actually listens to what you have to say and does not over diagnose or over medicate.
I've seen other neurologist before but Dr. Ahsan was by far the best, he diagnosed my condition without needing to get more testing done. The last neurologist I saw want to get more test but I just couldn't bare with all the testing any longer. I went there for a consultation and left with a diagnosis, thank you so much Dr. Ahsan.
He's a great doctor, and he knows how to help.
Best neurologist I have seen thus far. He really cares about his patients and cares in general. It is hard to see that compassion in a lot of healthcare professionals, but he truly cares and it is very genuine too. He seems to know a lot about what he practices as well. He tells you what you need to know. Then, his office staff is very friendly and helpful. You will feel very comfortable within the office because I was. I fully recommend him to anyone. I would 120% recommend him.
Waiting time was fast, by the time I went into the room he was there within 5 mins. He was friendly and had good manners. He explained things in detail, he addressed my issues. Overall I was happy to pick him as my doctor!
The doctor was very personable. He offered great advice. I had a problem with one of the staff, she was not customer friendly at all. They may want to put her behind the scene somewhere not dealing with the public.
He is a great Doctor
I left satisfied knowing the reason for mt daughter pain in her arm.
Didn't attend me as quick as i wanted he was very rude and was not what i expected from the reviews i saw
Nor the office employees or the doctor seem very professional. The staff was loud and unprofessional and nothing seemed of importance to the doctor.
Dr. Ahsan is a excellent neurologist with great bed side manner very patient
He enjoyed making jokes and enjoyed me joking with him.He is direct to the point and your out.The only problem he was hard to find his name is not on the directory board in the lobby.I wound up in a total Russian Internal Medicine Doctor's Office but one of the Russian Nurses walked me to his Office.
Dr Ahsan was very helpful and considerate. He quickly was able to give me a diagnosis without putting me through unnecessary tests. I would recommend him to anyone.
Truly satisfied!! Dr. Ahsan is a thorough professional who cares for his patients and attends to their needs. He is attentive, compassionate, and makes you feel at ease with his sense of humor. He is an erudite man who understands your problems and addresses them effectively. Highly recommend Dr. Ahsan:))
I think he took time to care for me as a patient instead of caring about what kind of insurance I had and not caring enough to try to help my problem.
He was great!
I think Dr .Ahsan is an excellent Neurologist and a very good individual with a conscience. This goes a long way with trusting him as a doctor.
He's very personable, and warm. My wait was a little long, but I did not mind as he came out and acknowledged us rather than ignoring us as happens in most doctors' offices. He seems to be very cost conscious, and does not recommend procedures that are not necessary. Bottom line: Two thumbs up!
Extremely friendly and professional. Very knowledgeable is his assessment and treatment! Did not request unnecessary tests. Would definitely recommend!
Very attentive and thorough.
The doctor was great, the staff was very unprofessional though! Very uncomfortable while in the waiting area listening to some of the conversations that were going on in front of me but Dr Ashan made up for it. Very nice man and very funny! I would recommend him but he definatly needs to have a talk with his staff
I was very impressed with the service and even more impressed with the doctor. By far it was the best experience I have had with a physician ever.
very good caring Doctor. I woud recommend highly to my friends.
The visit went well and I'm satisfied with the time I spent with the dr.
Dr. Ahsan was thorough and direct with questions and the diagnosis, which I prefer. I have scheduled a follow-up and hopefully the prescription and recommendations he provided will be helpful. I will provide another review after my follow-up visit.
