I never thought about the need to see an endocrinologist; thinking that a PCP could take care of everything. While my PCP is very qualified, I have seen the benefits of visiting Dr. Ahmad, who can focus on a major problem in my life and customize treatment and care, accordingly. I believe her to be one of the best and I\'m grateful that my first contract with an endocrinologist was with her.

I went to see Dr. Ahmad on 10/31/18 for my follow up visit for my thyroid. I expressed to her in the last couple of months that I have gained 13 pounds without any change to my diet, that I am exhausted all the time no matter how much sleep I get and that I am ver irritable. She had me get lab work done to check my thyroid for hypothyroism. I have had this lab work done several time in the past few months because I voiced my concerns with these symptons as they progressively got worse. Dr. Ahmad told me that my lab work came back normal and that I am not symptamatic which I completely disagee with. I feel like she is not taking my concen of how I am feeling into account at all. I am now going to seek another opinion because of this.

She is very friendly and good listener! She also has the same condition so she can relate to how badly you may feel! Her expertise & professionalism help make BS & White top notch! I have already recommended Dr Ahmad to several friends.

I\'ve always hated doctor\'s visits. The wait times are usually insanely long, the doctors I would see always seemed ready to get me in the chair and quickly back out so they could move on to the next patient. I love this clinic, the staff here are friendly and genuine. I was seen about 20 minutes before my scheduled appointment time, which was mind boggling to me. will be going back in the future.
