I really liked Dr. Ahmad. I think she was genuinely concerned for my diabetes She was very thorough in try to find the best treatment for my diabetes and what the underlying causes are. The only thing that really concerned me was that she wanted to put me on a cholesterol lowering drug when I have never had high cholesterol She did respect my wishes not to be put on one. Overall I was very impressed with her and think that she will be a very good doctor for me to continue to use.

One of the things we addressed was testosterone replacement therapy and the cycle I\'ve been on. The doctor said to continue treatment for the next 3 months until a follow-up appointment but didn\'t actually give me my testosterone prescription. I can\'t do anything without the medicine. I normally wouldn\'t have forgotten and left without it but that shouldn\'t be and isn\'t my job.

Aside from the fact that she is only available on Wednesday , she was very pleasant, and knew her stuff. I appreciated that she did not push a questionable medicine on me but gave me all the information about it and time to review it. However she gave me no option of physical therapy or things I can do to help myself but not cause greater harm. I would like some physical therapy or at least occupational therapy, please. I do know about removing rugs, etc.

I have some pending test results, but I think Dr. Ahmad has been super & very fast with portal answers to my questions so far. I just hope she does post-menopausal blood tests, for that is where I think the problem lies.

Dr. Ahmad was fantastic. I got in and had an ultrasound scheduled that day. She was caring and transparent. She explained things in a way that was right for me based on my understanding and education on the topic. Transparency in decision making and thought process is huge with the availability of information to patients today and it\'s rare to find Doctors who do this well.
