Ratings for Dr. Amer Ahmad
Well this Doctor needs to be reported to the College of Physicians I went into the emergency several years ago, little did he know I have extensive medical background needless to say I left the emergency department, suffered until the next morning and then seen my own family Dr. and Yes I reported him. Personally animals receive better care than what Dr Amnad provides.
If this man is working in the ER, I leave. I'd rather drive to Cobequid or Kentville than deal with this quack! I was in labour and he sent me home instead of sending me by ambulance to the IWK for delivery. He refused to acknowledge the file I had to carry with me at all times explaining how going into labour posed a serious risk of hemorrhage. When my husband arrived, he would speak only to my husband and would not speak to me, look at me or acknowledge anything I asked or said. My husband had no choice but to then drive me by car through unplowed roads during a horrible snow storm to get to the IWK. By the time we arrived, the baby was in distress and was delivered by emergency c-section. After that, it was off to isolation in the ICU and three more days before I could even hold my newborn child. Those who think this horrible man is a good doctor have obviously never been in real need of medical attention. Still not sure? Ask the people he works with. I wouldn't be surprised if all the glowing reviews placed on this site were written by him alone.
Had him a few years ago, when I was much younger. He told my mom I was faking having a stomach ache, turns out my appendix needed to be removed. Gave my Dad the run around when he was in a bad accident, and was just generally unhelpful and arrogant.
Was seen by him at emerge and he had the worst bed side manner of any doctor I had ever seen. Rude, arrogant and no compassion what so ever. He made me feel like I was just a waste of his time. He told me I wasn't dehydrated when I had been vomiting for 4 days straight not able to keep anything not even fluids down and I could no longer pass urine. Anyway My mother was just as ignorant to him as he was to us and she got her point across and he wasn't long ordering test to find out I WAS SEVERLY DEHYDRATED and it was due to an allergic reaction to medication. Now any time I go to the hospital which is very rarely unless it is something serious. I make sure I know who the doctor is working before I am fully registered. If it's him and I am stable enough to make it to another hospital I will. He is a total d*** and Does not deserve to work in the medical field.
I am so disappointed, my 75 year old father finally decided it was time to quit smoking and was asking Dr. Ahmad about treatment options that are offered at the hospital and the doctor told him he didn't need their help and was very rude about it. Dad has been smoking since he was sixteen and Dr. Ahmad has been aggressively nagging my father to stop for years. I had hoped that he would be thrilled that dad was finally going to quit and extend positive words of support but instead he argued with him, telling him he didn't need the program. He wanted dad to pay for the smoking cessation products himself but leaving him without the sometimes beneficial support that these services could provide. (We got the program information elsewhere and my fathers cancer doctor (a very kind and informative man) has recommended it as well). Dr. Ahmad has been rude and dismissive many time over the years with my parents but they are afraid to change doctors, for fear of getting someone worse. Also, doctors taking new patient have been few and far between. I quit seeing Dr Ahmad, years ago because he was dismissive and rude, my brother quit seeing him for the same reason. My sister stopped seeing him some time ago because he ignored her complaints until she had to be rushed to Halifax for emergency surgery. I am very glad he is helpful for some people but this has been our experience and I felt it was important to share it.
I had him for 17 YEARS! WORST DOCTOR EVER! From about the age of 13-on, EVERY issue was fixed with 'diet & exercise'...I went SIX YEARS thinking that any issues I had were all in my head, that I was too fat and 'diet & exercise' would solve everything... So I lost the weight & started eating right ... Apparently the sprained ankle I got while working my butt off was also be fixable with d&e -_- ... He was never open to discussing options or information with me; I rarely left his office without crying and/or feeling terrible about myself... I've never met anyone so calis, so degrading and so smug ever (and I don't just mean as a Doctor)... After leaving him I found a great doctor and found out that I really DID have some medical problem and one, if it had been left any longer, could have turned fatal ... I repeat, he is the WORST DOCTOR EVER! Save your time, money & sanity! Go elsewhere!
I finally found another doctor, thank God!!! After being told I was fat and that I eat too much junk food. Funny, I'm 5'8 and weigh 130lbs~I can't eat burgers and chocolate etc, I have stomach problems, which my new doctor has determined to be adhesions blocking my bowel...after 2 years of complaints to Ahmad! Not to mention the fact that when I talked to him about the stomach problems I asked him if it would effect having a baby and he told me I don't NEED anymore kids! He was out of line! And whatever you do don't ask to have your kids tested for ADHD or any other issues. He refuses to "label" the child, however, it also is refusing to help the kids who need it. He neglects majority of his patients and focuses on a few. So to those who like him, congratulations for being one of the few.
Not impressed with this doctor whatsoever! I used to think he was decent when I first met him, but when I was younger, I was prone to ear infections.. I got ALOT of them. I went to outpatients one night with my mother b/c I had an ear ache and knew for myself that it was an ear infection. He came in the room and asked what brought me in.. I said I have an ear infection and he had the nerve to ask me when I got my doctor's degree. What an arrogant jerk! I've seen him a few times at outpatients since and he always says that there is nothing wrong and then I go to my family doc and sure enough... there is some sort of health issue. He is very insensitive and "big feeling" and knows how to belittle you. Now whenever I go to outpatients and he's working, I turn around and leave b/c I know that he's not going to do anything to help me in any way. Personally, I think he should no longer be able to practice! Especially after reading the above post about the persons father!
