Ny first cisit was geeat, he presxibed me a mesication that kills two birds with one stone!
I was able to get in and out of my appointment in a quick manner without feeling like my time didnt matter. Dr. Ahmed was extremely thourough with questions and made sure not to miss anything important. He was able to quickly come up with a treatment plan for me. I would definitely recommend Dr. Ahmed to someone who is having headache trouble.
Dr. Ahmed is great. I started going to him about 8 months ago for migraines. He is very attentive and I always get seen right away. I appreciate the front desk staff as well. Today I was afraid I would have to wait because I was a few minutes late but they checked me in and took me straight to an exam room.
Dr. Ahmed was great. I'd highly recommend him. As a busy professional, I appreciate the time he took to help me get established with a neurologist after recently moving to the area. I'm happy to have found him.
i felt that he didn't take enough time to explain how restless leg syndrome worked. i further asked him for treatment option and he said "don't get stressed". i also asked him whether i need to increase dosage for medication. his response was "it's up to you". i paid to get medical advice but was disappointed.
He and his staff were very friendly and made me feel at ease.
Dr. Ahmed is a wonderful doctor and the office staff is outstanding. Truly one of the best doctors office I go to.
Staff was very helpful and friendly definitely made me comfortable with visit and I appreciate that
Have seen him a couple times- always a friendly staff and the doctor doesn't rush.
Friendly staff..knowledgeable and friendly doctor.
Absolutely happy with my choice of a new doctor. He understood me to the tee.
I was pleased to have such a knowledgeable and caring doctor who took time to explain things to me, and actually seemed to care. He was very professional and caring, these are wonderful qualities in a medical doctor, I came away feeling I was in good hands.
Dr Ahmed is always looking out for me and make sure I am not suffering and listens. I can't thank him enough for all that he has done to help me. He is a wonderful doctor - his staff is one of the most friendly I have meet they are GREAT. I would highly recommend him.
Very knowledgeable of my diagnosis and what we need to due to correct it and make myself get better. Great personality!
Thoughtful, helpful. Very optomistic opinion of Dr. Syed based on my first visit.
It was very accommodatiing and personal. I felt right at home. My encounter was like meeting an old friendl
THIS DOCTOR SEEMS TO BE A VERY PLEASANT PERSON. MY APPOINTMENT WAS BRIEF AND UNCOMPLICATED SO I CAN'T SPEAK TO HIS ABILITY TO HANDLE DIFFICULT ISSUES.
Dr. Ahmed is fantastic! He is caring, takes his time with his patients and explains everything. He is also extremely nice.
efficient , competent , can think critically , attentive , listens well
Really liked Dr Ahmed. It was my first time and he really took his time to talk to me. He asked questions and really listened to my responses. Did not feel rushed at all which is sometimes the case with Drs these days.
Best neurologist I've ever had. He truly listens and cares. He's also one of the few docs in the area that uses Botox for migraines. The botox has worked wonders on my chronic daily migraines. Another huge thing is that his office staff is very nice. The main receptionist lady is very caring and helpful. Great office!!
I needed a new doctor because I am now on Medicare. I have used a CPAP for more than a decade and found Dr. Ahmend to be very helpful in making some adjustments to my treatment.
I've seen Dr. Ahmed before but I met him through ZocDoc. He's a great Neurologist. So far he's treated me for migraine. I know he does a lot of other kinds of things. My point is that he's helped me w/my headaches. It also helps that he takes my insurance and he's close to my house. If you have migraines or sleep problems I recommend that you see him.
I feel well taken care of by both Dr. Ahmed - whom handles my sleep management issues , and his supporting staff- who handle scheduling and Insurance items. Today was my third visit to his office over this past year and I would recommend this office to my family members and certainly anyone whom may be reading my message herein.
The office called me while I was on the way and cancelled.
I meet with Dr Ahmed first time four years ago for sleep apnea. He diagnosed me with severe sleep apnea. The appointment for the machine was about 4 weeks out. He got in the phone with them. Made them come out within 24 hours to set me up with the machine. He showed me how serious a health problem sleep is. And everything he told me would happen has. I have more energy, I am more productive in work, I sleep much better, my quality of live is better. I tell everyone I know that needs a sleep dovtor see Dr Ahmed. Because mostly he cares. Thanks again Doc
Appointment was fine. Staff is very polite & courteous. It's has been over 10 days and I am still waiting for staff to clarify my medication order with pharmacy. I haven't had my meds yet, and no call from office staff.
He always listens, gives options, and answers my quedtions. Great experience!
I finally found a doctor who could help me!!!
Very thorough and thoughtful. We have a good care plan and I feel confident in where we are headed.
Great doc. Very professional, very helpful.
Not less than what I expected.
He is one of the best doctors I have ever had. I wish he could take me on a my regular doctor. He and his staff at the front desk are wonderful.... I wish more office was like his.
Doctor is thorough and took time to explain all aspects of the issue.
He is a great doctor. He really takes the time to listen to his patients and o determine the best course of treatment for them.
Compassionate and informative. I am satisfied in knowing that my issues are in the good hands, Thank you Dr. Ahmed.
He is wonderful!! I would highly recommend Dr. Ahmed.
Never said hello. somewhat arrogant!
Dr Ahmed is treating me and my mother. I am a difficult patient because I read about our symptoms on the web and argue with the doctor. Dr. Ahmed is very knowledgeable and patient. He has been taking a great care of both of us patients. Dr. Ahmed makes sure to pay attention to details and plans the treatment accordingly. It is nice that a neurologist of Dr. Ahmed's caliber is practicing in our area.
Enjoy my visits with him... he is a likeable person that seems to know how to connect with his patients
Dr Ahmed is very down to earth and professional.
Dr Ahmed was friendly and helpful. I was seen right away.
arrived 20 minutes early, was escorted to a room immediately for my first neuro consult. doctor was extremely receptive and helpful. was out of the office before my appointment was even scheduled to start
I have been a patient at Dr. Ahmed,s since he opened his office. Ii highly recommend him. He is very easy to discuss issues with and great at reviewing treatment options. His diagnostic basis is in clinically proven treatment and has not steered me down experimental treatment. However, promising treatments such as DBS (deep brain stimulus) are also considered. His staff is professional and friendly.
I really like Dr. Ahmed and will recommend him to anyone, My friend recommended him to me.
He listens and he cares!
The staff is friendly and polite and the wait is never very long. My problem is I think Dr Ahmed is more a sleep specialist and doesn't seem to want to get to the root of other neurological problems. He likes to prescribe meds which, i realize, is needed in a lot of cases but how about finding out why the nerve is doing what it's doing?
Very impressed - found an unknown issue - addressed the issue quickly - made referrals and followed up on progress
Dr. Syed Ahmed is really great!! Thanks to Dr. Ahmed my migraine headaches are no longer a problem! Vanessa
First time visit, found Dr. Ahmed very pleasant and patient. Easy to talk with, and understanding of my situation.
Very good bedside manner. Really listened and developed an appropriate treatment plan based on my individual needs.
When I went to go see this doctor I was having four Migraines a week and I was not very functional. Dr. Ahmed was very helpful in setting up a treatment plan and getting my life back under control and back into my hands again. Since then my appointments are always on time and finished quickly. It is also fairly easy to schedule an appointment with him. I def recommend this doctor to anyone who has chronic and severe migraines
I had a great visit. While we didn't come to a diagnosis, the doctor made sure to prescribe a lot of tests to come to a diagnosis.
Doctor Ahmed seemed very knowledgeable and was encouraging and responsive to my questions
The receptionists were not very friendly and cold. The doctor was not very detailed. I felt like a number and he didn't feel like finding any cause to my problem. He didn't help me at all.
This was my first appointment with Doctor Ahmed, and I was very pleased with his bedside manner. He seems to have a genuine interest in his patients and helping them manage and treat their symptoms.
Always a pleasure meeting with Dr. Ahmed.
I was looking for a second option since I was not getting results and he diagnosed my issue quickly and helped solve the problem.
Dr. Ahmed is very professional and kind. He is patient and really listens. I found his bedside manner very pleasant and down to earth. He is genuinely interested in getting you healthy and keeping you that way. He will find the best possible treatment for whatever ails you!
Dr syed is the doc to go to he listens and no rushing here great Doctor!
Dr. Ahmed is the first neurologist I have met with that has taken a full spectrum approach to helping me with my health problems. He cares about me as a person, and even remembers details of my life events. I can't recommend his practice enough.
I came all the way from Baltimore and it was worth the trip. Finally a doctor that spent time to talk and explain things to me. Two thumbs up !!
Dr. Ahmed is a wonderful doctor. He listens to what you and your family has to say. I was passing out, had shortness of breath, and loss my memory. I have serve sleep apnea. Dr Ahmed suggested that I have a sleep test to check my air. They found out that my air had to be changed from 9 to 18 and they switched my CPAP to VPAP machine which puts out three times the air pressure . After using my new machine I stopped passing out, my breathing got better, and my memory came back. Thank you Dr. Ahmed!!
Dr. Ahmed is a breath of fresh air after spending my entire life dealing with doctors that just aren't willing or able to invest in me or getting to know or understand me. I have a great relationship with Dr. Ahmed. I trust him and I value his opinion. He plays is straight with me regarding my medical issues and treatments and is willing to take my input into consideration.
He really listens to what is said and askes a lot of questions. The office is very nice and the staff is competent and friendly. I wish all my doctor's appointments were as productive and easy.
It was good! I'm looking forward to my next appointment.
I think it went well, helped out with was needed. Got the job done effectively.
He spent a great deal of time with me, carefully explained the treatment plan and the next steps to be taken. I have never spent so much time with a neurologist before; it was very refreshing.
very informative and professional.
