“Dr. Ahmad is the best doctor I have ever had in my 71 years. I thank God I found him as my lungs got worse later in life. He has given me a second chance. If you are hospitalized, he is your best advocate! He is dedicated to his patients, and never forgets your personal situation. Everyone in his office is super competent, and friends, and treats you like family. I thank God for Dr. Ahmad.”
“I am an 80-year old snow bird who has lived with asthma since I was six years old. Over time, my condition has grown progressively worse, but it took an even greater nosedive in the last few years. It got to the point where my breathing was so labored that I had trouble simply walking to the mailbox. Gratefully, in 2015, I saw an article about a revolutionary new lung treatment being offered by Imtiaz Ahmad, MD, MPH, FCCP. I contacted Dr. Ahmad’s office immediately, and after some testing, I was accepted for treatment. Those three treatments changed my life. I’m now working out every day. I ride a stationary bike, I walk on the treadmill, and have even rejoined my softball team. I would strongly recommend Dr. Ahmad and this treatment to anyone who is experiencing trouble breathing as a result of asthma.”
