What our patients say

My daughter had an appointment with Dr Ahmed who immediately put us at ease with his expertise and wonderful bedside manner. Within 5 minutes of being in his presence he diagnosed my daughter with FND which we had suspected all along. Can't thank doctor Ahmed enough for putting us at ease and being so helpful and understanding and for his expertise in all neurological matters. What a wonderful Doctor, there needs to more like doctor Ahmed.
