Pay a Bill
I treat patients as I would treat myself or any of my family. While I am a surgeon, I regard surgery as a treatment option should nonsurgical methods not work. I am dedicated to improving pain, function, & the quality of life for my patients. I am equally passionate about contributing to clinical education & research for patients & physicians. I take my responsibilities as a physician & surgeon very seriously, & am proud to give back to the Chicagoland area where I was born & raised.
I treasure my moments with my family which include my wife, girls, & Boston Terrier doggie. I enjoy doing things outdoors which include running, biking, hiking, & tennis. I also enjoy traveling in & out of the U.S. to experience what this world has to offer.
Conditions & Procedures
Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle,
Dr Ahmed seemed genuinely interested in my concerns and answered all of my questions.
I had a very frustrating appointment. I was given little to no guidelines regarding how my activities have or could be effecting my healing. I asked the same question several times and continued to only get the response, "it takes time". I was not offered any options for further care or restrictions. I have continually been given only very vague treatment suggestions and injury progression. Only with my assistance was xrays explained and progress detailed.
Great experience. Nicest professionals I've ever dealt with
Dr. Ahmad seemed a bit disconnected from what I was trying to explain, as if he was puzzled why I would come to him to see if my complaints about foot/ankle pain were valid.
The dr. was kind & patient but did not give clear instructions about future care or expectations related to pain or movement progress.
Thorough professional and courteous examination
Boot given was overkill & not needed, was able to get a shoe elsewhere. When going thru x-ray told me where the break was. Upon a 2nd opinion elsewhere, it was not correct location.
Dr. Ahmad was very clear about my treatment and what to do moving forward. I appreciated the time he took.
