I had the good fortune of having a gastric bypass procedure with Dr. Ahmad in 2008.  It was truly a life changing event and restored my health and gave me enormous quality of life.  Beyond that, Dr. Ahmad has remained closely involved in my health matters and well being which is congruent with his philosophy of a life long surgeon-patient partnership.  I have maintained by ideal body weight of 110 pounds for the past five years, as of March 17, 2013.  I hold Dr. Ahmad in the highest regard and have yet to meet any physician as meticulous, caring and skilled as he.

Not a day goes by that I am not grateful for finding a bariatric surgeon as wonderful as Dr. Ahmad.  I say this as a patient, and also as a registered nurse in the medical field for over 20 years.
