I liked that she even looked at my records from another hospital to see what has been done there as far as treatments and history go and didn't dismissed it like the last provider from this office.

Dr Ahad was just great! She really listened to me and answered all of my questions. She even explained things further so I had a better understanding of what the surgery entailed. She didn't hurry me one bit!
