"My husband unfortunately and fortunately received an emergency procedure performed by Dr. Ahmed. I say unfortunately because it was imperative that he have the surgery and fortunately because Dr. Ahmed entered our life as the surgeon.My husband is a former NFL athlete and has received medical care from some of the premier surgeons in the country. He now adds Dr. Ahmed and his staff to that list.The surgery was performed beautifully and the healing was expeditious. His bedside manner is very kind and attentive. Amazingly at the office follow up visits, the wait time was within 5 minutes and we were well equipped with information to manage the wound until the next visit.Marie, his nurse was very prompt (same day turn around) in completing all paperwork necessary for our insurance claims.My husband is very pleased with Dr. Ahmed, and we highly recommend his service.The GreensChino, CA"
"My 7 year old had an accident at school which required stitches to his face. Dr. Ahmed was kind, gentle and is highly skilled at his craft. The stitches healed and there is virtually no visible scar. Highly recommend."
"100 stars for this doctor. Dr Ahmed was on call the evening we were seen at Huntington Hospital (where I work). Adult son accidentally lacerated both tendons and nerves of a finger (glass window broke). I knew my son was in good care at HH and with Dr Ahmed’s skillful hands,knowledge and experience we were lucky he was on call that day. Skill and knowledge are most important; you can teach kindness, humility, graciousness and compassion (only a few to describe his manner) but it is not always learned. . Dr Ahmed from the moment he saw my son just prior to surgery, very kind and as a mom a pat on my shoulder , "I’ll take good care of him" , is all a worried Mom needs to hear. Even weeks out in the healing process, worrying if the finger would heal well (son Type 1 DM), extra worry. We followed up monthly for months, PT etc. Today a year out...he has a ~75% functioning finger, which is what we told would be from the onset. We are more then grateful for this. Thank you Marie as well for your professionalism, kindness and caring way from the very first call. I’ll never forget you and as well, my family cannot thank you enough Dr Ahmed, thank you for what you do for your patients. HH and the community are fortunate"
"Last new year’s eve my son was rushed to Huntington hospital for an fireworks accident on his both hands. His right thumb was almost detached and his left hand had multiple broken bones and deep cuts. Dr. Omar Ahmed did an outstanding job and saved my son’s hands. I can’t find words to describe how thankful I am."
"In February 2018, I tumbled down the stairs of my office building. I sustained a four-inch gash in my head that bled profusely. I was sent to Methodist Hospital in Arcadia. They called Dr Ahmed to stitch up my head. My Blue Shield PPO did not want to pay his bill of $7,000, which I thought was very reasonable, given the very skillful job he did, but they paid the ER Doctor’s $5,000 bill. Dr Ahmed was the only doctor that I saw that day, despite a bad concussion."
