He did a lifesaving procedure for me and provided excellent care of me, and communicated clearly to my wife and spent a lot of time on the phone with my wife to discuss the procedure he performed and long term consequences of my health situation… I cannot recommend this doctor enough. He is honest, kind, relatable and explained my very complex situation in a very simple way. When I visited a few weeks later after being in the hospital, he remembered me, my wife’s name, and the details of my situation without a computer. Excellent doctor!!"
"Dr. Ahmed’s practice was referred to me through my Primary Care Physician for post-COVID GI issues and for a routine colonoscopy exam.

"I am a Canadian who required a colonoscopy after a positive FIT test in Canada Although Health Care in Canada is presumed great, my wait time was 4 months to have this procedure. With a cancer history, the wait was very stressful. I attended Dr Ahmed’s clinic on Friday and was given my colonoscopy on the following Tuesday . Dr Ahmed was amazing. He was so compassionate and attentive, and took his time to explain everything, and answer all my questions. At the clinic, the staff were so kind and caring. Without insurance, I was a self pay, and the cost was so reasonable. I will most definitely be recommending him to all, especially all the Canadian Snowbirds who cannot access adequate healthcare in Canada. Amazing Service!!!!!"
"I went to see Dr. Ahmed for a long-term issue. He provided a clear analysis of what was going on, was very holistic in looking at the different variables in my situation, and provided very pragmatic and helpful recommendations on how to deal with the issue. I found him very attentive to the issues in the needs going on with my health, and to be very personable. I would highly recommend Dr. Ahmed to others looking for a quality GI specialist"
