Dr. Ahsan is very efficient and knowledgeable. He gives you a feeling of confidence and is willing to help a patient in pain. He was able to ease my migraine WHILE I was in the office, much to my surprise. I'vehad migraines since I was a child and seen many, many specialists. Most of the time I would be prescribed medications that made my headache worse. He was the first to actually help with the pain.

I had an overall awful and unprofessional experience with Dr. Ashan. He did not shake hands or introduce himself and he left the door open while discussing private medical issues. Additionally, he kept interrupting me when i was talking andonly spent 5 minutes total on my problem before sending me off. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND HIM TO ANYONE. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME.

I arrived at 8:40am for a 9:00am appointment. Dr. Ahsan did not arrive to the office until 9:45am. He immediately called my name to begin my appointment. No apology or statement was made regarding how late he had arrived to theoffice. We sat down to discuss why I was there. The door remained wide open. I tried my best to explain what I was struggling with. Dr. Ahsan cut me off many times and trivialized the reason I was there as if I had no reason to speak to him. Within 7 minutes of being in this room, he had written me a prescription for 2 medications. I told Dr. Ahsan that I was seeing a psychiatrist and counselor regularly. He quickly told me seeing them was "a waste of time" and that "they are just there to take my money". After once again explaining I had not come to the office to get a prescription, he asked why I was there. I told him I was hoping to get an MRI. He responded "you want an MRI? Sure, go get an MRI, but it won't help you. It will come back normal." Dr. Ahsan spoke to me in a very rude manner the entire time and was clearly in a rush to move onto his next patient. Our appointment lasted a total of 10 minutes. I received absolutely zero help from this doctor. I emotionally proceeded to the front desk where I asked for a refund. The women at the front was very kind and could tell I was upset. She said she had to ask the doctor if I was okay to issue a refund. Dr. Ahsan said he would not offer a refund and that he had provided services to me. This could not be further from the truth. No service was provided. When I tried to ask him why I was being treated the way I was, he said I was "wasting his time." I wouldn't recommend this doctor to my family, friends or anyone for that matter. I am incredibly disappointed. I would urge anyone seeking care in this field to find another doctor.

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 writingdown 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.

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 withan 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!!!

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 neverattempted. Wouldn't give me a receipt for the charges I incurred.

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.

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 pileson 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.

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 neurologistsin 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.

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'thelp 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.
