This provider was grateful that I brought my own medical records of labs and scans, etc., because she had no interest in going through the medical records that my PCP\'s office took the time to send in advance. I was disappointed that she didn\'t review them before meeting with me, and had no interest in looking at them during our visit when I made reference to them. She ordered lab tests for me for which I had blood drawn after our visit. A week later, I am still waiting to hear from her office, even though the lab tech said I would hear by the next day. I called a few days later and there was nothing. I was told I would hear by Monday. Today is Tuesday...

When I ask questions on website, her answers are very brief and not always completely helpful. I have to really push her to get answers to some of my questions.

I do not appreciate the way I was not informed in advance of my lab work, that almost none of it would be covered under my insurance plan. I am sure she thought it was necessary, but I really feel like she should have let me know the cost upfront. I also do not appreciate being told each visit that I need to be on Cholesterol lowering meds when I have never had high cholesterol. I know you do not go by the numbers, but I do. All I want is treatment that is for the most part covered by my insurance plan.

She explained the care process thoroughly and asked if I had any questions about my care on several occasions. She did not rush and used models during her explanation. I feel at ease in her care during what could be considered a highly stressful situation.

Certainly a "no Nonsense" Doctor, which I do appreciate. She was direct and to the point. I did not appreciate being "judged" in a disapproving manner when I responded yes to being a smoker. Her response was: "Really?...Really?" while looking down her nose at me. (one of those \'come-on, you should know better moments). I would have more appreciated a statement of support stating that when I\'m ready to quit, they would help with that. (which I am ready, but certainly don\'t want to be treated like a villain)

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.
