"I’m in healthcare and chose Dr. Ahmed based on a friend’s recommendation. Dr. Ahmed is knowledgeable, professional and most importantly caring which is rare to see in physicians these days. I had 2 cosmetic procedures performed and my expectations were exceeded. "
"Highly recommend!!! From consultation to surgery day and now 3 months post op, I have nothing but great things to say about Dr. Ahmed and his staff at his Pasadena office. My procedures included a breast reduction/lift and tummy tuck! Wow! Wow! Wow is everyone’s reaction to me and that is my own reaction to my reflection in the mirror. You can trust that Dr. Ahmed will do good by you and you will get the results you want. I spoke to a few patients in the waiting room and they all felt how I did! Thank you Dr. Ahmed!"
"Had a broken wrist from a Gun shot womb, bullet was inside my wrist, plus was broken. He did a great job. thanks for the great work 👍 and coming to the hospital ER to to help me."
"Dr. Ahmed is someone I cannot say enough nice things about or extend enough gratitude . I had a breast lift and lipo and my shape and breasts exceed my expectations! I went to Sonobello and he and his nurse agreed that a mini tummy tuck would not give me the results I wanted. I wanted a flat stomach and small perky breasts. I came to Dr. Ahmed’s private practice In Pasadena and his staff is incredibly caring. The first time I took off my faja it looked like a miracle/magic had been performed! It was shocking!! I am 6 wks out and all I can say is don’t wait if you are considering this procedure. I cannot imagine a surgeon being more competent or talented than Dr. Ahmed! He will follow through on his promises."
"Lipo360/TT and I’m a new woman!! This Doc knows what he is doin!! He was so honest and easy to talk to. I showed him inspo pics, and let me tell you! He understood the assignment!!! If you a thicc gurl, he will snatch that waist! I look like I got a BBL! "
