Dr. Ahmad was very thorough in trying to understand together what sleep issues I might have. She took her time in asking me specific questions about my sleep issues, and asked me questions I probably would have forgotten to mention hadshe not brought them up. I did not feel rushed and felt it was a smooth consultation.

I had a very pleasant experience with this sleep doctor. She was able to understand my need to get a new CPAP machine and recommended options accordingly. They are also a DME so they can get me the equipment directly insteadof going through another DME like Apria (horrible). I am writing this review after having seen this doctor and after performing a sleep study in their sleep lab. Highly recommended.

Visit was good, however I was asked a majority of questions I already answered online. Apparently all of the data submitted online didn't get to the doctor. Why is that?
