So far he's been wonderful. My dad had congestive heart failure for 8 years before he passed and he relied on the expert care of his heart doctor. I have only just started with my cardiology "team" headed by Dr. Ahmed, so I have much to learn. He seems expert in his field and on meeting him, I liked him very much.
