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 was fabulous! He was very nice and listened to me and my problem. He seemed like he cared and I would definitely see him again if I needed to.
My experience with Dr. Ahmad was excellent. He was kind, he listened carefully, examined my ankle, ran diagnostics and set up a plan of treatment. He explained my condition in an easy to understand manner and referred to images of my ankle to help me understand. His treatment was immensely helpful in relieving pain and improving my stability. It's important to note that I had been to three other doctors over the course of about 4 years, and none were as thorough and careful. The others prescribed medicine but no treatment. I have told my family and freinds about him. I am very grateful that he is part of my care team.
*Dr. Ahmad is the best, 5+.
Overall Dr. Ahmad is great, I just have one suggestion. Early on in this recovery from surgery it would be appreciated if Dr. Ahmad informed you that although you will be healed regarding the direct surgery within a certain time period you will not be healed completely regarding the rest of your foot due to atrophy. And that most likely you will need PT. To me recovered is my complete foot/ankle are back to normal.
Appears that the call center mismatched patient with doctor. Doctor ordered x-rays before exam. Then told patient that he could not do anything for him.
Dr Ahmad has been great since I met him in the Skokie office. He has been straight forward with me and has helped me understand alot of why I needed the surgery
I highly recommend Dr. Ahmad. He listened, ran appropriate diagnostics and clearly explained and showed me what was causing pain in my ankle. I've seen other doctors outside NS, received no diagnose, only a recommendation to call back if pain continues and they'd give me prednisone pack. I'm thrilled Dr. Ahmad took the time to "hear me" and investigate. I've already recommended him to family members. I thank him for his help.
Really appreciate Dr.'s focus on my recovery. Proactively calling back, etc. Feel actual concern. Thanks.
Did not explain my follow up care very well. I had to call 2 times for instructions.
He is excellent dr., wish him the best and will recommend him no problem.
