the dr and her nurse did an excellent job. she made me feel so relieved to actually know that it's my gull bladder and that I wasn't making up the symptoms. both are very friendly and caring and love that feeling

The care and professionalism I received from Dr. Ahad and her staff has to be the best available in the Midwest. I had laparoscopic inguinal hernia surgery 3 days ago, and already feel good and recovering well. Dr. Ahad made sure I understood everything about the progression of surgery, pain management, and recovery. I feel blessed and fortunate to be here where Mercy Hospital has state of art facilities and unparalleled staff.

This was a after surgery follow up visit and I had a list of questions that I wanted answered. Dr. Ahad took the time to answer all my questions. I did not feel that I was being rushed through. Dr. Ahad was very professional and caring.
