Ratings for Dr. Mushtaq Ahmed
My husband was hospitalized after a terrible fall which left him bedridden and unable to even sit up. While in the hospital, my husband's pain management specialist suggested he should be sent to a long-term nursing facility to recover. Instead, the next morning, the hospital released him, saying that Dr. Ahmed had made the decision to send him home. He was in no condition to be sent home. I called Dr. Ahmed and spoke to him myself, trying to explain that he was supposed to be sent to the long-term nursing facility as was ordered by his other doctor. Dr. Ahmed kept claiming that Medicare would not allow my husband to stay in the hospital, even though we had Medicare on the other line, saying he could stay up to 60 days. He had not even been there 3 days. Because it was a Friday, the long-term nursing facility's administration office was closed and would not be accepting new patients until Monday. All Dr. Ahmed had to do was approve his hospital stay until Monday, so that he could be transfererred to the facility from the hospital. I pleaded with Dr. Ahmed to help us. His response? "It's Friday afternoon. I don't have time for this." As a result, my husband was basically thrown out of Mercy Hospital, unable to sit, stand, or walk, when a simple phone call from Dr. Ahmed would have saved my husband 5 days of agony and pain at home, as I worked to get him sent to the facility that his other doctor had wanted. My husband instead was without help or care for 5 days, instead of staying at the hospital for 3 extra days and being transferred to the home. Now, my husband has been released after 2 months in the facility, and Dr. Ahmed refuses to refill ANY of his medications. My husband still cannot stand or walk, and cannot sit up long enough for the wheelchair ride to the hospital. Dr. Ahmed did not care. Still refused to refill unless he came to the office. His staff even had the nerve to suggest that my husband pay $300 out of his own pocket for a gurney ride to get there! In short, very unprofessional staff to match an extremely uncaring doctor. Dr. Ahmed clearly does not live by the first rule of the Hippocratic oath he was sworn to uphold as a doctor: "FIRST, DO NO HARM."
Dr. Ahmed is better than house. He has saved my life on numerous occasions. Only complaint is that most employees do not know who does what. I always ask for cody. He is always nice and knows how to get things done. He always makes sure that things get done. Great Job Dr. Ahmed and Cody
